Our no bake Sugar Wafer Frankenstein Cookies are so easy, it’s scary! They are adorable and pretty much the perfect Halloween treat for any party. Bonus: they are so simple that the kiddos can help make them!
So, after I transformed vanilla sugar wafer cookies into back to school pencil cookies, I started brainstorming other fun ways to decorate my favorite crunchy little cookies. So rest assured, this is not the last time you will see sugar wafer cookies (or creme wafer cookies) here at Shaken Together!
Because ya’ll … did you see those quirky little faces?! Can’t handle the cuteness of these green guys …
No Bake Sugar Wafer Frankenstein Cookies
These are SO easy! Even easier than my pencil cookies. Just melt, decorate and let them set. That’s it!! So, put on The Monster Mash, grab a Vampire Float and make some no bake Sugar Wafer Frankenstein Cookies!
Here are the handful of supplies you will need:
- Baking Sheet – this is my favorite baking sheet
- Parchment Paper – these cookie baking sheets are THE BEST!!
- Green Candy melts
- Mini Candy Eye Balls – here are a few choices if you can’t find them in your local store
- Chocolate Jimmies
- Chocolate Sugar Wafers (Creme Wafers Cookies)

Once the candy melts are melted, dip your cookie. I used a popsicle stick to scrap off any excess and smooth out the chocolate if necessary.
Then, spoon chocolate jimmies over the top 1/3 of each cookie for Frankenstein’s hair.
Use a pair of food safe tweezers to place two eyeballs.
Finally, add a chocolate jimmie for the mouth.
This is where each Sugar Wafer Frankenstein Cookie comes to life …
I love the different expressions you can give each little Frankenstein depending on the shape and tilt of the sprinkles!
Allow the cookies to set up before handling. Since FL is so hot and humid, I normally pop chocolate dipped sweets in the fridge to chill and speed up the setting process. But I have learned NOT to do that with any treats using candy eyeballs. The black food coloring will get damp and bleed/run, ruining all of your hard work.
And these cute little monsters are way too much fun to have watery, running eyes!
