Chomping Monsters

I got this super cute recipe from Pillsbury. I did not take the picture and I have not made this but it is too cute and festive not to share. Please enjoy!



1 package (16 oz) refrigerated chocolate chip cookies (24 cookies)

1 ¼ cups white vanilla baking chips

1 container ready-to-spread frosting (any white variety)

Gel food colors, if desired

Decorations, if desired

Red or black string licorice

Miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Large marshmallows

Candy-coated chocolate candies


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. On ungreased cookie sheet, place cookie dough rounds 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes.
  4. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 10 minutes.
  5. Microwave 1 cup of the white vanilla baking chips uncovered on High 45 seconds in medium microwavable bowl. Stir; if necessary, microwave in 15-second increments, stirring after each, until chips can be stirred smooth. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in frosting until well blended. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the frosting mixture to attach decorations.
  6. Use gel food colors to tint remaining frosting in desired colors.
  7. Spoon each color of frosting into resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut 1/2 inch off one corner of bag, and pipe on bottom of 1 cookie. Press another cookie, flat side down, on frosting at an angle, cookies touching on one side and about 1 inch apart on the other, to look like open mouth.
  8. To decorate, press remaining white vanilla baking chips in frosting for teeth.
  9. Use reserved frosting mixture to attach eyes, using decorations as desired.
