One of the things that we’ve noticed about our collection of Halloween recipes is the abundance of bites with eyes: the goofy, the spooky, and the everything in-between. We thought we would share a couple of our favorite creations that would make great pre and post trick-or-treating snacks.
Colorful frosting and googly eyes make these silly monster cookies a fun Halloween treat. But wait, there’s also a trick to these cookies! We stacked the cookies triple high, making a secret pocket to fill with a sweet surprise. When you break the monster cookie open, the surprise is revealed.
It’s easy to make Surprise Inside Monster Cookies. Start with a baked sugar cookie and spread with frosting. Then top with another cookie with the center cut out… this creates a pocket you can fill with colorful sprinkles and candy eye balls. (That’s the surprise!) Top with another cookie, and decorate with frosting and candies to make a funny face.
What’s your favorite Halloween candy? You might have guessed that my favorites include chocolate and peanut butter! Yep – I love peanut butter cups and pieces so much that I made this layered peanut butter chocolate bark. It’s chocolate on peanut butter on chocolate on peanut butter with a bonus layer of Reese’s Puffs Cereal for extra flavor and crunch. It’s spooky, scary good!
