Kooky Cookie Monsters are a Fun Halloween Treat for All Kids


Another holiday, another excuse for Enjoy Life to create some more kid-friendly recipes like these Cookie Monsters (okay, adults like them, too!). These Halloween treats are a fun project for kids to make and devour, especially since they’re allergy-friendly and have a soft, chewy texture. Plus, they use just three simple ingredients that are easy to find. Although, we like to use an assortment of the ingredients for the most flavorful fun.

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 cookie monsters
  1. Empty the trail mix and cereal into separate small bowls.
  2. Take one cookie and turn it upside down, then stack the other on top so the flat sides are on the inside. Pinch them together in the back.
  3. Take cereal and components from the trail mix (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, raisins, chocolate chips, apple pieces and cranberries), and decorate to resemble monsters.
  4. You can enjoy them immediately, or store them in an airtight plastic bag for up to 4 days.
Trail Mix Note: If you have trouble finding an allergy-friendly trail mix, you can buy the components separately. Look for dairy-free mini chocolate chips, hulled sunflower seeds, and diced dried fruity.
