5 Insanely Easy Halloween Cookie Ideas [PICTURES]
If you’re planning a Halloween party, don’t get lazy with the treats and snacks. Just setting out big bowls of candy is not going to cut it.
Instead, how about Mummy Cookie Pops? Or Frankenstein Marshmallows? Or even Mis-Fortune Cookies?
The unbelievably talented Meaghan Mountford, author of the book ‘Cookie Sensations’ and owner of a site called ‘The Decorated Cookie Blog,’ has these ideas and more. Best of all, she tells you how to make each one.
Here’s a look at five of our favorites. Click the “instructions” link to get the lowdown on how to make these at home.
These mummy cookie pops combine both creepy and cute in a sweet package. Store-bought candy eyeballs and fondant make decorating these a cinch.
These are a bit more difficult to make, but they’re amazingly eye-catching and will surely spark conversation, especially among the wicked witches at your party.
Marshmallows, with their cylindrical shape and flat tops, make perfect Frankensteins. To creatively display these at your Halloween party, prop them in a shallow bucket filled with bolts.
Because a generous coating of sprinkles covers icing imperfections, these colorful spider cookies for Halloween are the perfect starter cookie for rookie decorators.
Meaghan used a basic fortune cookie recipe, adding black frosting for color. Then, while the cookies were still warm, she folded them and inserted slips of paper with mis-fortunes like “A ghost will move into your attic,” “You’ll get candy corn stuck in your teeth…forever,” or “Zombies will knock on your door.” (She even has a set of mis-fortunes you can easily print and use.)
