October is nearing an end and we couldn’t ignore the fact that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month. We shared these yummy pink whoopie pie cookies where we contrib, Creative Home by Mohawk Floors earlier this month. We have all lost a loved one because of cancer but also have some success stories too. Our Aunt Mar June beat breast cancer and so did Kelli’s Aunt Tammy, take that cancer!! It’s a great time to share some whoopie pies with a friend, whether it’s a success cookie or a hope cookie, these fun pink ombre cookies will bring a little happiness. Bonus, it’s an easy cookie recipe since you’re using a box mix, you know how much we love mix cookies! The frosting is a breeze too since you can whip up your own or take a short cut and use a can (;
