If you’ve had monster cookies before, then you’re probably thinking of the traditional peanut butter oatmeal cookies with M&M candies. While those cookies are certainly delicious, we think this gooey, spooky version is going to be an even bigger hit with the kids this Halloween.
As tasty as M&Ms are, they lack a certain “scariness” to them. Swapping out the candy M&M’s for candy eyeballs instantly makes them true monster cookies with crazy look eyes.
Not only that, but the food coloring makes these cookies all sorts of colors like purple and green, which is not only suitable for Halloween but also makes these cookies reminiscent of the Disney movie Monsters Inc.
The little ones love the bright colors of the cookies and the fun candy eyeballs. The gooey texture of these monster cookies, which can be attributed to the use of cake mix rather than traditional cookie dough, also makes this an absolutely irresistible treat.
Feel free to dye your cookies any colors that you like. With a pack of food coloring, it’s fairly easy to get creative and try all sorts of colors, be it turquoise like the favorite Monsters Inc. movie character, or just bright Halloween colors like orange and purple.
