3 dozen


No Halloween party is complete without these cute cookies that, thanks to licorice strips, white chocolate chips and brown M & Ms, look just like monster eyeballs.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream butter and sugar in a mixer. Mix in yolk and vanilla, then flour and salt, well. Roll into balls (size of a large marble). Coat in green sugar. Bake on 2 baking sheets for 12 minutes; rotate pans halfway through.

Step 2

Remove from oven. Lightly indent centers. Push licorice "eyelashes" into cookies; bake for 2 minutes. Push tip of whitechocolate chips into centers. Bake for 3 minutes. Immediately press a mini M&M in center of each chip. Cool.

This was a cute concept but the white chocolate chips didn't expand at all when baked so they were hardly visible under mini m&ms. I think I will have to go back and use frosting around minis to make them look like eyes.

I thought this would be a fun cookie to make with my grandson.  Although it was a tasty cookies, it is not a project to do with children.  The cookie did not look anything like the picture no matter what I tried to do.  One thought would be to put the licorice in while the cookie is still warm.
