Calling all superhero fans! It’s time to iron your capes and round up your sidekicks because today, Thursday, September 25th, is National Comic Book Day!
On this special day, fans of all ages get to dedicate an entire day to celebrating all of their favorite superheroes!
Since no celebration is complete without a fun, festive and tasty treat, we suggest you get your own Comic Book party started by creating your very own Superhero Cookies, like the ones we found on Pinterest in the photo to the left.
Don’t worry, it doesn’t take superhero baking skills to make these treats – they’re much easier than they look! All you have to do is sift through your Christmas cookie cutters and find the gingerbread man design. Make your typical gingerbread cookie dough, or use a sugar cookie dough if you’d prefer, and cut out a bunch of gingerbread men. Once they have been baked and completely cooled, have fun turning each cookie into your favorite superhero! Make sure you have a bunch of color options when it comes to the frosting – those superhero outfits are anything but dull!
Make decorating the cookies a family affair for some sweet memories and once all the cookies have transformed from their secret identity – eat away! Make sure to save a bunch for your little ones to take to school and share with their friends, too! While you’re sure to have a ton of fun making this creative cookies the fun only lasts as long as you can keep from eating them! Keep the comic book fun alive by personalizing one of the gifts from our Marvel®, DC Comics® or The Ultimate Spider-man® Stores!
