Eyeball Monster Cookies

Sharing is caring!

This post and recipe for my Eyeball Monster Cookies were created for #HalloweenTreatsWeek! Some of the sponsor companies sent me samples but as always opinions are 100% mine.

The one thing about most cookie recipes I love is that you can decorate them and make them any way you want. That is what I did with my normal sugar cookie recipe.

Using my favorite recipe, and a few ingredients from my pantry, I was able to create these Eyeball Monster Cookies.

How to Make Eyeball Monster Cookies

To make these, start with a cookie base — for this one we used sugar cookies.

The best sugar to use in my opinion is Dixie Crystals.

In a bowl, combine the sugar and butter and cream together. Once it is fluffy, add in your vanilla and egg. I love Adam's Extract Vanilla for these cookies.

Once you get all the cookie dough mixed together with the dry ingredients, split the dough between three bowls. Using your food coloring (again we used Adam's Extract), choose 3 colors.

We did blue, green, and purple (purple is made using blue and red).

Once you get it all mixed together, take a little from each bowl and combine together to create a tie-dyed cookie.

Place on a cookie sheet and let bake for 8-10 minutes in a 375-degree oven.

When the cookies come out, simply press in some candy eyes. I have a multi-pack from Wilton with all the different sizes.

Let the cookies harden and with that, you have the best Halloween cookies! They are perfect for school parties, lunch boxes, or wherever you need to pass out a cookie.

You showed exactly how to do this and I'm ready to jump in. I love the swirly colors and the darling use of many many eyes. Do-able with lots of impact without lots of fuss. Making these.
