Ooey gooey Monster Cookies with eyes

Delicious & Easy Ooey Gooey Monster Cookies

I saw these super cool ooey gooey monster cookies over at LilLuna and I just had to make them! My 5 year old helped me and it didn’t take long at all. They came out looking amazing and tasting even better!

Now, obviously, these monster cookies would be perfect to bring to a Halloween party, but you could also bring them to a monster themed birthday party or a family movie night. Put on some spooky movies or a fun cartoon, like Monsters University (find more movie ideas below), and these cookies will fit right in!


All of the ingredients for these gooey monster cookies are pretty standard; you might even have them in your kitchen already! The only hard-to-find ingredient in this recipe is the edible candy eyeballs. I found mine at Michaels craft store but you can also find them on Amazon.
