Monster Cookies

October is all about monster mayhem.  Monster movies, monster costumes and (as I have discovered) monster trucks.  Now that November is here and the festivies are done, we have to forget all of that until next year.  Luckily, I have a monsterously magnificient momento to remember the Halloween season.  A recipe for monster cookies.  Everyone is afraid of a monster but these monster's are friendly and yummy.  Don't worry they like to be eaten so its not animal/monster cruelty.   



You will need:
  • 1 Angel Food Cake Mix Box (I prefer nice monsters)
  • 2 Cups of M&Ms
  • ½ cup of softened butter (take out first thing in the morning and let sit) 
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 softened 8 oz. Cream Cheese Bar (take out first thing in the morning and let sit)
  • 1 egg
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Food Coloring
  • Candy Eyeballs (I found these in Michaels but you can find them in any craft store)

  • Instructions
    1. Beat butter, vanilla, egg and cream cheese together in a large bowl until fluffy.
    2. Add the cake mix, then divide batter into bowls for the amount of colors you want.
    3. Add food coloring for your desired color to each individual bowl and mix until all combined.
    4. Divide M&Ms into different colors (This is optional) and add them into your cookie mix.  Stir
    5. Put batter in refridgerator for 30 minutes to chill.
    6. Take out of Refridgerater, roll into balls and dip in a bowl of powdered sugar.
    7. Place the balls on greased cookie sheet and pat down slightly.
    8. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes
    9. Add candy eyeballs on while cookies are still warm.  
    10. Eat, Exchange and Enjoy!
     
    As you can see that these cookies are easy to make and are ready in a flash.  Kids love them (Don't worry.  They won't be scared), and they are very popular at bake sales.  You make one batch of these beauties and BAM!  Watch them disappear as fast as the last month does.  My mother always says to keep the monsters outside but these cookies are too good to pass up.  They are a friendly reminder of my favorite holiday.  How do you remember your Halloween?
