Whip up this festive Halloween cookie recipe today! They are a chewy sugar cookie with dyed orange and topped with Halloween sprinkles and fun candy eyes.
I love creating fun treats for my kids around Halloween. I have shared a recipe for mummy chicken fries in the past along with a fun garbage bag ghost tutorial. I also let my kids take charge of the Halloween decorations one year and they had a blast. Make sure you also read my post on How to BOO Your Neighbors.
Surprising the kids with Halloween Cookies
I baked these babies, along with a batch of Halloween chocolate chip cookies, and surprised my son after school. He and his sisters got to share the cookies with their friends at the park. It was a lot of fun.
Sprinkle Monster Halloween Cookie Recipe
I based this recipe off of my Christmas sprinkle cookie recipe I shared a couple of years ago. I knew I wanted it to be a tasty sprinkle cookie recipe with a fun Halloween cookie twist.
So, I dyed the cookie dough orange (using a combination of yellow and red), rolled them in Halloween nonpareils, and added some fun “monster” eyes at the end. I love how they turned out and hope you do, too!
Do you put sprinkles on cookies before or after baking?
For traditional sprinkle cookies, you will roll the cookie dough ball in sprinkles prior to baking. For cut-out sugar cookies, you will add the sprinkles after baking.
What sprinkles to use for Halloween cookies?
Can I leave sugar cookies out overnight?
Yes. Sugar cookies can be left out at room temperature.
How do you store fresh baked cookies?
It’s best to store fresh baked cookies in an air-tight container at room temperature. Just make sure they are fully cooled prior to transferring to the container.
