These Monster Cookies add the perfect touch of spookiness to any Halloween spread and will be a huge hit!

The best part about these cookies is that they make the perfect treat for a Halloween party or to hand out to trick-or-treaters. The use of store-bought eyeballs gives them the added spooky element and gives them that festive touch.

Using Candy Eyeballs

Candy eyeballs are a fantastic item to use when making Halloween treats and these Halloween monster cookies are no exception.

You can use two candy eyes per monster cookie or if you want to try something different give your monsters more or fewer candy eyes to make them even more freaky looking. Either way they will taste delicious. Be sure to glue the eyes on using a little icing.

Recipe Tips

Be sure to not over-mix the dough, it can cause the cookies to be dense and tough.

If you don’t have a piping bag, use a zip lock bag and cut off one of the corner tips to pipe out your cookie dough.

Feel free to add Halloween-themed sprinkles on top for added decoration before

Can I swap White Sugar for Brown Sugar?

Yes, you can swap White sugar for brown sugar, but keep in mind that it may change the overall taste and texture of your cookies.

Do I Have To Use Unsalted Butter?

Yes, it is important to use unsalted butter in this recipe as it helps control the amount of salt in the cookie dough. Salted butter can affect the overall taste of the cookies.

If you only have salted butter on hand, just omit the added salt in the recipe and reduce the amount of butter by about ½ tbsp to compensate for the extra salt in the butter.

Can I Use A Different Type Of Milk?

You can certainly use any type of milk that you have on hand, such as almond or oat milk. Just keep in mind that it may alter the taste slightly.

Cut out your Halloween cookies using a round cookie cutter. We used a medium sized round cookie cutter with patterns on for our Halloween Monster Cookies.

If you don’t have a cookie cutter then use a cookie scoop or simply made cookie mounds or cookie balls to place on your baking sheet.

Place the cookies on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake Time For Halloween Monster Cookies With Candy Eyes

Bake the chocolate Halloween monster cookies in the oven at 180°C for 10-12 minutes.

Let your cookies cool completely on a cooling rack. You don’t want to decorate warm cookies. Warm cookies could damage the candy eyeballs and make the filling melt.

What If I Don’t Have A Cooling Rack?

That’s okay you can leave your cookie on the baking sheet if you don’t have a cooling tray, they will just take a little longer to cool down.

While your cookies cool you can prepare the filling for your Halloween sandwich cookies.

How To Make The Cookie Filling

To make the monster eye cookie filling, mix together the powdered sugar, unsalted butter, heavy cream, vanilla and salt until creamy. Add food coloring depending on what color you want Halloween monster cookies to look like.

Use A Piping Bag

Use a piping bag gently press down and add the filling onto one cookie.

Top with another cookie and lightly press down to make sure they stick together.

Using a small dab of the prepared filing, add on your store-bought candy eyeballs onto the cookies for that spooky touch.

Serve and enjoy! These Chocolate Halloween Monster Cookies are perfect for any Halloween party or gathering. Don’t forget to save some for the trick-or-treaters!

Can I Add More Decorations To These Cookie Monsters?

Yes, you sure can.

You can add on some Halloween-themed sprinkles or even little candy spiders, candy corn, Reese’s pieces, melted chocolate or chocolate chips for extra spookiness.

Chocolate chips can add extra chocolatey deliciousness to the chocolate monster cookies.

However you choose to decorate your cookies, get creative and have fun with it!

Happy baking and Happy Halloween!

Why Is There No Baking Soda In This Recipe?

In this recipe, the baking powder is enough to make the cookies rise and become fluffy. Baking soda can also be used as a leavening agent but it does have a stronger taste so it is not necessary to use baking soda in this recipe.

7

Are These Halloween Monster Cookies Chewy?

These cookies have a soft and slightly chewy texture as they are made with cocoa powder and not just regular flour.

Feel free to add in some chocolate chips or chocolate chunks for added chewiness if desired. Or you can leave the cookies just the way they are in the recipe.

Can I Make These Cookies Ahead Of Time?

Yes, these cookies can be made ahead of time. After you bake these cookies they should stay fresh for about 4-5 days if stored in an airtight container.

They can also be frozen for up to 2 months. Just thaw before serving and enjoy! Only add the filling when you are ready to serve and eat the cookies.
