Halloween Monster Cookies.

We don't really go all out for Halloween here, I don't decorate (except for fall decor) and we haven't even got the kids costumes this year...I am crossing my fingers we can slip old ones by them without them noticing. Wish me luck there. But I do like making at least one fun seasonal project with them. 

I was looking for something fun to make for my son's Kindergarten class for their Halloween party & I stumbled upon these monster cookies.  I knew right away the kids would love them!  They were surprisingly easy to make & the kids were so happy that they got to help put the eyes on!

Powdered Sugar
Candy Eyes


  1. Use a mixer to mix your softened butter, vanilla, egg and softened cream cheese until fluffy. 
  2. Add in cake mix and mix until combined. 
  3. Separate dough into 2 bowls (so you can make 2 colors of cookies)
  4. Add food coloring and mix to desired color. 
  5. Chill dough for 30-40  minutes.
  6. Roll dough into balls and then roll in a bowl of powdered sugar to coat.
  7. Drop balls onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper & press them down slightly.
  8. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. While the cookies are still warm push eye balls into place!

Lofton was so excited to take these to school to share with his friends! I can't help but hope that he remembers these days making cookies with Mom.  There are so many ordinary days I remember doing ordinary things with my Mom & I wish more than anything that I could share an ordinary day with her again.

Sometimes I stress about the huge mess being made, or worry about all the other things I should be doing.  But I need to take more time to cherish these things with my kids, messes or not. We really had a great time making these monster cookies together & I'm sure they will become a Halloween Tradition here at the Numbers Household!
