Obamas’ Halloween candy revealed
And in a macabre twist, a recipe for the White House sweet dough butter cookies was also given. It involves – shriek! — a pound of sugar and - moohaha!! – two pounds of butter. But in the spirit of healthy eating, the release also contains the recipe for a make-your-own dried fruit mix.
No treats for guessing which recipe will prove more popular come Halloween.
The White House Sweet Dough Butter Cookie Recipe
1 lb Sugar 1 tsp Vanilla
2 lbs Butter 1 tsp Salt
