Well it’s that time of the year again babes… Time to bring on all the themed treats! And what could be more fun than a spooky themed treat for Halloween, right?! (Yes I know…these aren’t the “spookiest” of cookies. But I’ve never been one for blood and guts during Halloween, sooo spooky-cute is what ya’ll get!) Trust me though, your friends and family will go crazy over these Chocolate Peanut Butter Monster Cookies!
If your local grocery store is anything like mine, then they’ll have a set up of Halloween “specialty items” somewhere in the store. I would look there for candy eyes first. However, I’ve also found that most stores usually carry them in the baking aisle too. If you’re still not able to find them then Amazon always has some available and most options are pretty cheap.
I used both medium and small eyes for mine. (I thought they looked “spookier” that way.) But after my first test batch, I realized that the different sizes actually “cooked” differently too. Below are directions as to WHEN to put the candy eyes on your cookies depending on their size.
So who’s ready to make these cookies and have some spooky fun this Halloween?! Hope you have a great day everyone!
