Monster Sandwich Cookies Recipe


Step 1
Here's the lineup: cookies (of course), colorful frosting, and candies!
Step 2
For the candies, I used a mix of candies, marshmallows, and chocolate chips.

The marshmallows are the perfect base for eyeballs, and I love the chips for the teeth.
Step 3
I used canned frosting instead of making it from scratch. Knock yourself out if you've got the time and the powdered sugar.

For the green I used Duncan Hines frosting creations caramel flavored, along with some neon green coloring.
Step 4
I had to use the whole tube of green, but I think I ended up with a nice eery green color.
Step 5
For the purple, I just used a can of regular vanilla frosting.

I didn't have to use the whole tube this time, but you can see it was still a pretty sizable blob.
Step 6
I think it ended up a nice color, but use as much coloring gel as you like to get the results you like best.

I transferred both of the frostings to gallon sized ziploc bags.
Step 7
Snip the corner of the make-shift pastry bags, and you're ready to start sandwich making!
Step 8
Surprisingly enough, these sandwiches begin with two cookies.
Step 9
Flip one of those bad boys over, and put the tip of your frosting bag right on the cookie.
Step 10
Fill up almost the whole cookie, moving side to side. Leave some empty space towards the back of the cookie so that it'll sit up at a slight angle. This will make it look like your monster's mouth is open!
Step 11
Place the other cookie on top and apply a small blob of frosting to the front. I opted for the other color here... monsters aren't matchy matchy.

This will give your eyeballs somewhere to stick.
Step 12
For the eyes, I used marshmallows with frosting and M&Ms.

Start by getting just a small dab of frosting with a toothpick, and smear it onto a mini mallow.
Step 13
Then stick on a mini M&M, and...
Step 14
Bam! Eyeball.
Step 15
To make bigger eyes, slice a full sized marshmallow in half.
Step 16
On the non-sticky side smear another toothpick full of frosting, and smoosh in another M&M.
Step 17
Pretty cute huh?

Now just a couple upside down chocolate chips, and you've got yourself a monster!
Step 18
Here's a different one I made with Reeses Pieces teeth and equal sized eyes.
Step 19
Wyatt even made one! I helped with piping the frosting, but he did everything else on his own.
Step 20
I thought it ended up looking pretty awesome...
Step 21
and so did he!
Step 22
Here's another one of mine with mini chocolate chip teeth, and jumbo Reeses eyes.
Step 23
Wyatt really liked this one.

Step 24
He kept calling him Mike Wazowski, which I found very funny and silly!

So here's the whole lineup...
Step 25
These little guys are so cute!
Step 26
Just let your imagination (and your kids' imaginations) run wild, and I'm sure you'll come up with tons of spooky ways to make these Halloween Monsters!
