These silly monster cookies are simple, but effective, for halloween. Plus, they are little cookie bites, so perfect for portion control (for grown-ups AND kids alike). And they are also kind of sort of cute. Use as many or as few eyes as you like.
how to make eek! monsters! bite-size cookies
you will need:*
cut out cookie dough
1 1/2″ circle cookie cutter
frosting colors (black, white and any background color)
1 frosting bag for each color
1 coupler for each color
decorating tips, sizes 2, 3, and 4
*Find cutters, bags, couplers and tips at any major craft store. For colors, I use Americolor soft gel pastes. You will need White and Black coloring for the eyes, and your preferred background color. I used Orange, Electric Green and Regal Purple. For tips on finding supplies, click HERE.
step one: bake your circles
Cut out mini circles and bake according to recipe. Let cool.
step two: prepare your frosting
Prepare frosting according to the recipe and divide to mix your colors (I used 5 colors. You will need white and black for the eyes, and I used orange, lime and purple for the backgrounds.) For each background color, prepare a frosting bag with coupler and size “4” tip. Fill bags and tie closed with rubber band. For eyes, fill a bag fitted with a size “3” tip with white and fill a bag fitted with a size “2” tip for black.
step three: decorate your monster bites
Pipe a circle and fill with your preferred color. Let set about ten minutes. Pipe one, three or four dots with white and let set about ten minutes. Pipe dots on top of the white and pipe a smile with the black frosting. Let dry overnight if wrapping.
