I don’t really like the scary movies or the haunted houses (people chasing me with chain saws? No thank you!), but I love the cute spooky things that pop up all over the Internet in the weeks leading up to Halloween!
When I was standing in the checkout line at the grocery store, there was a little Halloween booklet with these little cookie smiles on the cover. I looked at the picture and decided to go home and make them with my kids that night. These could easily be made with any cookie and any frosting, but I went with what I had on hand.
You can watch me in action here (and see my cute witch’s hat!):
Or here are the instructions:
Halloween Spooky Smiles Cookies
24 peanut butter cookies (you can use your favorite mix, soft store-bought ones, or make our Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies)
1 cup Nutella or your favorite chocolate frosting (you could also use red frosting)
1 (10 oz) bag mini marshmallows
Cut a peanut butter cookie in half. Spread both halves with Nutella or frosting. Line the rounded edge of one cookie with marshmallows (you can do as many or as few as you like . . . I prefer 4-5 per cookie to make a cute smile). Place the other cookie on top, with the frosted side touching the marshmallows. Serve and enjoy!
Makes 24 sandwich cookies.
