Halloween just got a little cuter with these neon-hued, super silly Halloween Monster Decorated Sugar Cookies.

I don’t do scary – nope, not this girl. 

I couldn’t even watch the Walking Dead for longer than 5 minutes without nightmares for days. And I’m pretty proud to say that I’ve made my way through a ton of haunted houses without ever opening my eyes. 

In high school, I had a pretty solid game plan of strategically positioning myself in line and latching onto the person in front of me. Worked like a charm.

If you’ve followed this site for any length of time, you are aware that I don’t really do creepy for Halloween, so I pretty much cute-ify everything instead. 

While other blogs are creating spooktacular bloody cakes and witch finger cookies, this girl is busy making adorable spider cupcakes (yes, I just used the words adorable and spider in the same sentence) and Candy Corn Oreo milkshakes.

This year, I’m making super cute, not ghoulish, Halloween Monster Decorated Sugar Cookies.

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

A snickerdoodle is a type of sugar cookie made with cream of tartar and rolled in cinnamon sugar. This pumpkin spice version was inspired by my Skinny Snickerdoodles. I wanted to see what would happen if I coated them with pumpkin spice instead, the results were pumpkin spice heaven! More of my favorite pumpkin recipes are Skinny Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Spice No-Bake Cheesecake, and Pumpkin Butterscotch Bars.

These perfectly chewy, buttery M&M cookies are quick to make (no chilling required) and easy to eat! Great for making ahead, with a simple recipe that is fun for bakers of all ages!

Chocolate Cookie Dough

These cookies are quick, easy and kind of addictive. And you should totally bake some even if you don’t want to decorate them. I based them off these vanilla sugar cookies that I can’t stop making. They are so good!

The dough is scooped, rolled and then flattened slightly for a sweet little round canvas. 

So Soft Chocolate Cookies

Once the cookies are baked and cooled, scoop a small amount of chocolate buttercream on top.

But how do we go from that to these sweet-fanged faces.

Pan-banging Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been getting a lot of messages asking about the availability of both my cookbooks – they are showing up OUT OF STOCK almost everywhere. Many of you have purchased my books this past month and once again I am shouting from the rooftops THANK YOU!! Thank you so much for your support of my blog, books, and recipes the last 10 years.

These deeply rich and gooey chocolate cookies are studded with peanut butter and dark chocolate chips, with a crispy coating that makes for a perfect crunchy finish.

When it comes to cookies, the closer the cookie comes to cookie dough, the better I say. And these jumbo sized cookies are just that, with gooey middles and melty pockets of chocolate and peanut butter, all wrapped in a delightful coating of puffed quinoa that makes for a unique textural experience you’ll simply adore.

When a chocolate craving hits… only something ultra rich will truly satiate me. I often turn to my favorite brownies, but now that I’ve had these cookies, well, let’s just say my allegiance may be changing.

I mean, just looking at these cookies has me drooling. They’re sweet and salty. Gooey and crunchy. Dreamy dark chocolate and creamy peanut butter all rolled into one giant cookie.

Let me just warn you now, these cookies are rich. Like Warren Buffet rich. So you best have a tall glass of milk handy… and maybe a friend to share the goods (half of one of these monsters is more than satisfying).

I’ve seen similar thick and gooey cookies from the Levain bakery in New York City, and there are plenty of copycat recipes out there. This is not one of them, namely because I’ve never tried the real thing so who am I to try to replicate it?

That said, the cookies do look rather similar, with thick, rich chocolate middles and ample peanut butter chips that come out of the oven all lovely and molten (and indeed, I shouldn’t have to tell you that these cookies are at their best when they are warm).

I don’t think Levain has the crispy bits though, which is a darn shame because it makes these cookies a true textural delight – both to behold and then to devour.
