5 Insanely Easy Halloween Cookie Ideas [PICTURES]

The Decorated Cookie Blog

 

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?

Talented foodie Meaghan Mountford, author of the book 'Cookie Sensations' and owner of a site called 'The Decorated Cookie Blog,' has created these spooky treats 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 spooky goodies at home.)


 

These cookie pops have a face only a “mummy” could love. But they sure taste good. All it takes is some store-bought candy eyeballs and fondant to make your taste buds rise from the grave.

'Wizard of Oz' fans will enjoy these cookies that are both tasty and a little disturbing. (Try not to think about the crushed Wicked Witch attached to those by ruby slippers and striped socks.) They take a little elbow grease to make, so get some help from a trusty scarecrow (or your kids).

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. Rise, my delicious creation! Rise!

These colorful spider cookies are the perfect starter cookie for rookie Halloween decorators. If you mess up, you can always cover the imperfections with more sprinkles. Spooky and idiot-proof!

This twist on the traditional fortune cookie recipe adds black frosting for some Halloween edge. While the cookies are still warm, fold them and insert slips of paper with silly “mis-fortunes” written on them like “You will meet a boo-tiful stranger” or “You will get candy corn stuck in your teeth…forever.” (Meghan has supplied a handy set of misfortunes that you can easily print and use.)
