What Is A Halloween Monster Cookie?
Don't confuse this with regular monster cookies. Those are made with oatmeal, peanut butter, and a bunch of other ingredients and don't look at all like monsters.
These Halloween monster cookies are decorated to look like funny (and not at all scary) monsters. They look sweet and funny and are actually really nutritious!

Instructions for how to make this Halloween monster cookie
Prepare all of your ingredients and then combine your dry ingredients to make the dough.
Rub the oil with the egg, combine both masses.
Add in your chopped almonds.
Form cookies. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes. Cool down.
Mix everything for the filling:
- Butter 100 g
- Cocoa powder 2 tbsp
- Powdered sugar 2 tbsp
Allow it to cool down.
Put a little stuffing on one cookie, cover with the second one slightly at an angle. Make the teeth and eyes from your adorable little mini marshmallows.
Store your monster sandwich cookies in an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator for up to three days.
After three days, the filling will start to get a little harder and they aren't as soft. They taste best when they are freshly made.

Sometimes it is just easier to go off a recipe when it is printed right in front of you. Who wants to swipe their screen on their phone or tablet when their hands are greasy? So I love offering this option as well!
