Making Spooky Cookies

Cookies are probably one of the easiest, most widely loved treats to make. Turning a delicious cookie recipe into a Halloween theme is pretty easy. Some of the tricks we use include:

  • Switch out brown chocolate chips to Halloween colored chips.
  • Use purple, orange, bright green frostings or food coloring.
  • Use orange and yellow M&M’s or Reese’s Pieces.
  • Add a Halloween decoration on top like plastic spider rings
  • Use Halloween themed sprinkles

Another reason Halloween cookies, or any cookie, make a good treat is because they store really well. You can prepare them in advance and whip them out just in time for your Halloween party! Also, many are freezable both in dough form and baked form. See a specific recipe for more details.

These few recipes aren’t necessarily Halloween themed cookies, but you can make them with some of the candy your kiddos collect:

And if you don’t decide to use all that extra candy for these cookies, you can save any non-themed candy and store it in the freezer or the back of your pantry to use at Christmas or New Years!
