What You Need To Make A Halloween Cookie Kit:

- Food Coloring (Red and Yellow)
- Candy Of Your Choice – We used Reese’s Pieces and Mini Peanut Butter Cups
- Small Containers for the Icing
- Clear Treat Bags
How To Make A Halloween Cookie Kit:
Getting treats ready for a party doesn’t have to be hard! Start with pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough to make preparing easy peasy. I like to cook our cookies in a whoopie-pie pan to make nice, round cookies the perfect size for decorating. Bake the cookies according to the package directions and allow to cool completely.
While the cookies are baking and cooling, tint the frosting orange. You will need 4 drops of yellow food coloring to every 1 drop of red food coloring.
Once the frosting is tinted, spoon into a small container for packing. These icing containers are perfect! They are inexpensive and can be thrown away or recycled once they are empty.
It’s time to start packing your treat bags.
Pour a bit of candy into the bottom of each bag. You can use whatever candy you would like, just make sure it’s small enough to fit on the cookie! We used Reese’s Pieces because of the fun fall colors.
Next add in your cooled cookie and frosting.
Don’t forget a spoon to help spread the icing.
Tie your bag together and you are ready! Have fun!
