This cookie recipe will complement your Thursday evenings watching 'Marvel's Cloak & Dagger' on Freeform!


If the end of last week's cliffhanger on "Marvel's Cloak & Dagger" has told us anything, we're not going to be ready for this week's episode. You don't have to choose between light or darkness with this "Marvel's Cloak & Dagger"-inspired black and white cookie.

As things intensify with D'Spayre as Tandy and Tyrone head towards the upcoming season finale, make a batch of these cookies as you find yourself on Freeform every Thursday evening!
