How to make Halloween Candy Cookies

Trick or Treat, make these adorable cookies to eat! Who says all the Halloween treats have to be actual candy when you can have delicious sugar cookies that look like candy?!

I like a good Halloween Candy bag just as much as the next person, but I prefer sugar cookies to candy any day, so I decided to combine the two and have a cute and delicious set of cookies to give to the kids’ friends and classmates this year. These candy cookies are also great to make for other holidays and parties because you can change up the colors to match any theme you need to.

TRICK OR TREAT COOKIE

OUTLINE and FLOODING

Step 1: Outline the cookie with orange piping icing

Step 2:  Fill the outline using orange flood icing.  Once you have covered the entire cookie with flood icing use light orange to add polka dots to the flooded cookie

Stop and allow your cookie to dry in front of a fan for 1-2 hours before moving on to the details.  

Step 3:  Using violet piping icing and a PME 1.5 tip letter “Trick or Treat” on your cookie.  

When lettering remembers to apply more pressure on your bag on the downward strokes.  Practice helps so much! 

I included how you can package these adorable cookies for a great giftable. These were bagged using 3×5″ and 4×6″ self-sealing bags from Amazon. Box is 7″ x 10″ x 1.5″ from BRP BoxShop. Paper Shred is from Amazon.

If you have some folks to prepare treats for this year for a Trunk or Treat Party or Halloween party give this a trick instead of making the usual goodie bags with candy. Just package them up individually or even make a cute cookie bouquet by putting them on sticks and arranging them in a jack-o-lantern bucket with tissue paper. Any way you present them, these cookies will be the least scary treats at your party. Make sure to tag me when you post pictures online I always love to see the cookies my followers make!
