Sink Your Teeth into These Monster Eye-Scream Cookies

Halloween is still a few months away, but why not get a head start on some treat ideas? Cookies are usually my go-to, as you can prepare days in advance and they’ll stay delicious for your spooky celebrations. Adding to the list of monster-themed foods, these pastel monster eye-scream cookies are too adorable to be scary — but the cuteness may just make you melt. So what are you waiting for? Check out the how-to for these roarsome treats below!



Ingredients:

  • your favorite sugar cookie recipe
  • royal icing in a variety of colors

candy eyes (store-bought or homemade)





Instructions:



1. To make your own candy eyes: Roll out white fondant and cut out small circles using two different sized straws. Leave to dry overnight. When the fondant has completely dried, add on dots with a black edible marker.

2. Make cookie dough as per instructions, then cut out into desired shapes. I went with hearts, circles, triangles, and ice creams. Bake and cool completely before decorating.

3. Pick a color palette, then dye royal icing into desired colors. I chose pink, yellow, and blue, with the addition of peach for the ice cream element. Small portions of black and white are also needed for some final details.

4. For the regular monsters: Pipe icing onto cookies, then place on candy eyes straight away. Leave icing to dry for a few hours, then pipe on final details such as the mouth, teeth, and eyebrows. Leave overnight to dry completely before packaging and stacking.

5. For the ice cream themed monsters: Pipe on an ice cream cone pattern with the peach colored icing. Leave to dry for a couple of hours, then pipe on colored icing in a dripping pattern. Add on candy eyes while the icing is wet. When the icing has dried for a few hours, pipe on final details; then leave to dry overnight.
