Oreo Monster Cookies, some super easy Halloween treats to make at home with a few simple ingredients. There is no baking required, and it's a great fun to have with the kids. Quick, easy, and spooky, these Halloween cookies are simply delicious.
Can you tell that I'm pretty obsessed with the edible eyes? I have to use them in pretty much any Halloween treats I make, and the kids absolutely loved them in my Eyeball Truffles and Halloween Cupcakes. They are easily available in supermarkets at this time of the year, and are great for decorating any homemade treats.
There is no need to buy decorating kits, all we need is: oreo biscuits/cookies, white chocolate, coloured writing icing and edible eyes. And that's it, from here the sky is the limit when it comes to creating spooky treats of any kind.
Mine aren't quite spooky, but rather cute. As much as I love Halloween and the whole decorating bit, I'm not quite into hardcore spookiness, some treats look too creepy to even make me consider having a bite. So, l prefer keeping it rather mild when it comes to creating monster faces.
But even so, if you want to get the kids involved to have some fun decorating cookies, these oreo monsters are super easy to make. Let's see how!
- oreo biscuits/cookies
- white chocolate - either white chocolate chips or a white chocolate bar
- edible eyes - for decorating
- writing icing - for decorating
Step-by-step photos and instructions
I like the whole eye/eyball spookiness, that I even knitted an eyeball. Isn't Halloween fun? I certainly love it.
- break the white chocolate bar into pieces, and add them to a bowl set over a pan of simmering water - make sure the heat is on low to medium, if the heat is too high, the chocolate doesn't melt well and it becomes lumpy and hard to spread.
- when the chocolate is melted, dip an oreo cookie and use a fork to coat it well with chocolate
- arrange it on a pan lined with non-stick paper, and repeat with the rest of the oreos
- leave the chocolate to set either at room temperature or in the fridge
- use the writing icing to drizzle it over the top and decorate with edible eyes
These is obviously just an idea how to decorate the cookies. You can also add food colouring of your choice to the melted chocolate and create any colour you like, instead of using writing icing. The edible eyes can be placed in any way, the more, the merrier.
Just a tip here, if you don't use writing icing, which helps the edible eyes stick to the cookies, and choose to use the eyes straight on the chocolate, make sure you stick them after they had been coated. Once the chocolate sets, the eyes won't stick anymore. It might sound like an obvious thing to do, must things so happen.
The white chocolate can be replaced with either milk or dark chocolate, it all depends on the design you wish to achieve. These cookies are a great fun to decorate for any other holiday too, remove the edible eyes and decorate it christmassy, and you have a delicious festive treat. Do give them a go!
