Make Frankenstein Halloween decorated cookies using store bought cookies and frosting! These cookies are so adorable no one will care that they aren't homemade!

Frankenstein decorated Halloween cookies are easy to make with packaged cookies and frosting.  Cute semi-homemade cookies are perfect for kids to help make.

My kids love Halloween! They are particularly fond of anything scary or spooky, which I don't understand. I prefer cute ghosts and pumpkins. But I try to accommodate their spooky tendencies without getting too gross. And cute little Frankenstein monster cookies are a great compromise.

As much as I love cookies, I'm terrible at cookie decorating. I just don't have the patience to bake and then decorate dozens of Halloween cookies for a class party.

So I cheat.

I use store bought cookies and fancy them up! Last year we made these easy mummy cookies.  So cute and the grocery store bakery baked all the cookies.  This year we're skipping the bakery altogether and using packaged grahams.  Easy peasy!

Easy Frankenstein Halloween Decorated Cookies

Decorated Halloween Cookies

To make the cookies you will need:

Square fudge covered grahams
1 tub white frosting
Green food coloring (we used AmeriColor soft gels in leaf green)
Wilton Sparkle Gels in black
Wilton Candy Eyes

Frankenstein Cookies


Tint the tub of frosting with green food coloring. The AmeriGels are now coming is this super cool container that squeezes right in to the the frosting. No more toothpicks! Stir it up with a spoon to get the color you want.

Next, scoop the frosting into a food storage or piping bag and cut the tip.  This frosting doesn't require much accuracy so a plastic bag will work just fine. No tips needed.

Pipe the frosting onto the bottom half of the cookie with a zig zag about 2/3 of the way up. Use a knife to smooth the icing.

Finally, use the black sparkle gel to add black hair and a mouth, as shown.  Put on the candy eyes and you have Frankenstein.

Monster Cookies

I told you these are super easy! I'm pretty confident that you could do a few with older kids to show them the steps, and then just let them make the cookies on their own.
