Vampire Cookies

Posted on

Alright, let’s talk vampire cookies! Don’t worry, they’re not as spooky as they sound. Once you sink your teeth into them, you’ll forget all about the eerie name. Imagine chocolate chip cookies sandwiched with icing and marshmallow – now that’s a sweet delight. They’re perfect for getting that sugar rush, especially during Halloween.

These cookies are all about the fun, whether you’re making them at home with your kids or in the classroom for a spooky Halloween bash. We’ve kept things simple by using store-bought ingredients, because the real joy is in assembling these treats, not slaving away in the kitchen. But hey, if you’re up for it, we’ve got a killer homemade chocolate chip cookie recipe waiting for you. And guess what? You can even whip up your own icing from scratch, like our delicious vanilla buttercream frosting.

Not a fan of almonds? No problem! You can get creative with your vampire fangs by using pieces of pretzels or frosted corn flakes instead.

Now, let’s talk cookie alternatives. While chocolate chip cookies are fantastic, you can switch things up with a simple sugar cookie. Add some colorful sprinkles to make your vampire sparkle. If you prefer a cookie where the icing flavor really shines, go for oatmeal cookies. And hey, Dracula might have a thing for peanut butter, so why not give peanut butter cookies a try too?

Here’s what you’ll need:
