Pumpkin And Choc Chip Cookie Monsters For Halloween


Halloween is around the corner and like it or not: little kids love their trick or treat. Mainly the treat bit. So here’s something really cute you can prepare together with them, as it’s really easy and takes no time. Not to mention the fun and the yumm factor.

Pumpkin And Choc Chip Cookie Monsters For Halloween

Pumpkin and choc chip cookie monsters

 For your little vampire monsters you need some special ingredients:

    • Chocolate or nut spread
    • Candy googly eyes – you can buy these just to make life easier.
    • Ready to roll soft white icing for the vampire teeth, most supermarkets sell it.

Cookie Ingredients

300g plain white flour

150g dark brown sugar

150g pumpkin puree

150g salted butter softened

1 tsp baking soda

1 egg (and another eggs white to stick the googly eyes on the cookies)

100g dark choc chip

1 tbsp vanilla essence

Pinch of salt


Step 1. 

In the oven, roast the pumpkin slice for about 25-30 minutes on 175C until it’s soft and the edges are going golden brown. You need about 1/4 of a small 1 kg pumpkin. Let it cool, then scrape it off of the skin and mash it with a fork.

Step 2.

Preheat oven to 200C. In a large mixing bowl mix the sugar with the egg (beaten), then add the vanilla essence. Sieve in the flour. Combine well. Add the chocolate, pumpkin puree and salt. Mix them well. Spread out a baking sheet on the tray and with the help of a teaspoon, drop small batter blobs. Bear in mind, that a normal baking tray will accommodate around 12 cookies at the time. Bake them for 8-10 minutes, check them with a fork. They need to remain soft. Let them cool.

Step 3.

Assemble your vampire monster cookies! Match cookies into pairs. Put the first cookie face down. Using a knife, put on some chocolate spread, making it thicker on one side. This side is going to be the mouth and face of your monsters. Place top cookie on and press down on the other thinner side, so it will look like the monster’s mouth is open. Apply some edible glue or egg white to stick the eyes on (you can go crazy and make them have more than two eyes) and cut little triangle shapes out of the rolled out icing for the teeth. Then just stick them on the chocolate cream (as many as you want).

And that’s it! It’s so easy, that the kids can help and all have fun. Bobcat absolutely enjoyed sticking candy eyes on the cookie vampires!

Oh wow, I love these! One of our friends holds a party for all the kids every year and we all take some food along to add to the table. I always take the same spiderweb muffins as it’s about all I can do but now I have a new one x
