If you need an easy, yet festive, treat to make during spooky season, any of these Halloween cookie recipes will do! Whether you need them for a party or just for fun, everyone will love these 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:
