Jack O’Lantern Rice Crispy Treats Recipe Notes:

• Rice Krispies Treats™ is a registered trademark, so I try not to use it for the recipe title when making treats with crispy rice cereals.

• Rice Krispies® Cereal was used in the making of these Jack O’Lanterns. However, you can use any crispy rice cereal you like.

• This recipe may be doubled.

• If you are sending these into school, a boy or girl scout troop meeting, etc, you may want to wrap them individually with plastic wrap, or an apple wrapper.

• Rolo Minis are used to make the stem. If you prefer Reeses Minis, they work too.

Monster Eye Cookies Recipe

multicolored crinkle cookies with candy eyeballs in them on a dark tray


Need a Halloween treat idea? These Monster Eye Cookies are just what you are looking for! These terrific tasting crinkle cookies are easy to make and are perfect for Halloween parties, Monster parties, or an after school snack! These not-so-spooky monster cookies are fun, festive, and super cute.

Monster Eye Cookies Recipe

These delicious cookies start with a cake mix base so that takes the baking powder, rising, flat, yadda, yadda worries out of the equation and you end up with moist, plump cookies. A little doctoring of a cake mix can go a long way!

This is a pretty basic recipe. If you want to skip the eyes, you could choose different colors and make these for any season – colorful eggs + pink for Easter, red or green + sprinkles for Christmas, deep red + hearts for Valentine’s day, etc.

Monster Eye Cookies Notes:

• You can choose any food colors (or food gels) you like. If you are making these for Halloween or a Monster party some good color choices are green, orange, and purple (purple is an excellent food gel color as it will make it deep and vibrant). If you don’t have these colors, McCormick has an easy to understand food coloring color guide. Since you are dividing this dough into three sections, the cake mix colorants as listed will not work.
Orange – 17 drops yellow + 3 drops red
Neon Purple is a great color to use on these cookies.
Neon Green is a great color to use on these cookies.

• You can use one large eye centered in a green cookie for a Mike Wazowski look (who else loved Monsters, Inc?!?)

• The small and large eyes are a great staggered look. You can also do many small eyes only. The large eyes are best used sparingly when used alone, so one or three. You can use as many or as few eye candies on these cookies as you like to achieve the look and vibe that fits your event.

• Use parchment paper to line the bottom of your jelly roll pan – it will make the cake removal much easier.

• For my UK and Australian friends: confectioners sugar is icing sugar (powdered sugar, 10x).
