Hi friends! Are you ready for another Halloween cookie? I’m telling you, these candy dipped cookies are addicting! After a not-so-successful attempt at Zombie cookies, these Frankenstein Cookies were calling to me.
These were so much easier than the Zombies, but still had their challenges. I’d like to think in time, my decorating skills will improve. Hey, at least I’m learning!
These Frankenstein Cookies start with bright green Candy melts!
Melt them in a glass bowl according to the directions on the package. They will look like this when you take them out of the microwave, but once you start stirring them they will melt and become smooth and dippable!
Using two forks, I dipped the cookies into the candy melts and covered them completely. When they’re covered, gently tap the forks on the side of the bowl to let the excess drip off. This will work much better if the candy melts are very warm. When you’re done, place the coated cookies on parchment or wax paper to dry.
Now comes the fun part! Let’s give these cookies some character!
The noses are candy-coated mini M&M’s. Next time, I would pipe a nose. Dipping the tiny little M&M’s was a pain! Ahhh well, I learned, right? The hair was made from black candy melts.
I got a little silly with the mouth on these guys! (Also made from black candy melts) Hey, were having fun making Frankenstein Cookies!
They wouldn’t be complete without candy eyes!
The grandkids LOVED these! We had a great time and I see some Christmas Nutter Butter dipped cookies in our future!
