How to Make Frankenstein Cookies

Once the candy melts are melted, dip your cookie. I used a popsicle stick to scrape 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.

Sugar Wafer Halloween Cookies - these no bake Halloween treats are so easy it's scary!

I love the different expressions you can give each little Frankenstein depending on the shape and tilt of the sprinkles!

These Sugar Wafer Frankenstein Cookies are SO cute! Perfect for Halloween parties and easy enough the kids can help!

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!

  1. These are soo cute that I can hardly stand it- OMG I love them! Pinned them from main feed on Pinterest and just had to stop by and comment 🙂

    1. Terri – I really appreciate you stopping by and leaving a sweet comment! I think they turned out pretty cute and I love all their different expressions 🙂

  2. Do you have any idea how long these last? How much ahead of Halloween can I make these? I want to make some for seniors in our meals program but am too busy 3 days ahead of it since we are feeding 80. I have soup to make, a lot of prep work, etc. If I made these 5 days ahead would they get soggy or anything?

    1. I have not tried making them that for in advance Jayne but I do not think they would go stale or soggy because it’s just a candy coating. To be safe you may want to try a test batch ahead of time but I think they would be fine stored in an airtight container.
