Have you ever felt so angry you just want to smash things? We all have! Before you go and smash things around your home, you’ll want to check out these Hulk Cookies.
You can crinkle them, smash them and when all is said and done, you’ll have a delicious cookie down to the last crumb.
I don’t know about you but I loved the new Avengers: Infinity War movie. In case, you want to talk about it, we’ve made a post about Which Avengers Died (you can totally sob over there with us).
Now, that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk all things HULK.
Why not start with some fun facts about Hulk?
- He uses his superhumanly strong leg muscles to leap great distances.
- He can slam his hands together creating a shock wave, this shock wave can deafen people, send objects flying and extinguish fires.
- He has shown a high resistance to physical damage nearly regardless of the cause, and has also shown resistance to extreme temperatures, mind control, nuclear explosions, poisons, and all diseases.
- He can regenerate limbs, vital organs, and damaged or destroyed areas of tissue at an amazing rate.
It’s easy to see why the Hulk is easily one of the coolest Avengers. He has amazing abilities and his big, mean and green appearance make him fun to look at.
Hopefully, that information makes you a tad-bit more excited to make these Hulk Cookies. These will be the perfect addition to ANY super hero or Avengers themed party this year. And you know there will be a lot of them!
The one thing I want to share with you is the simple trick to getting these to look crinkly. Most of the time, you want perfectly round cookies and so you’ll roll out dough into perfectly round balls. With these you will actually want to roll them and leave the natural creases in them even as they bake.
As you can see in the photo above, that is exactly what I did. They are in no way a perfectly round ball and I left them that way while they baked.
Once they’ve cooled, that is when you’ll add Hulk’s details for his face. If you try to put them on even when the cookie is warm, it will cause a melty mess <— learn from my mistake.
I surely hope you love making these as much as I do! The recipe is below. Enjoy!
- 1 box of white cake mix, any brand
- 3 egg whites
- 2 tbsp. flour
- 1/2 C. vegetable oil
- Green gel food coloring
- White fondant
- Paring knife
- Small candy eyes
- Black frosting (I used Wilton Black Decorating Icing)
Combine the cake mix, egg whites, flour and vegetable oil mixing well.
Add in several drops of green gel food coloring and mix well. I used my hands after I stirred it a few times.
Use a small cookie scoop to scoop the cookie dough into approximately 2″ balls. Set on a baking sheet 2-3″ a part.
Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes.
Remove the cookie from the oven and let cool completely prior to decorating.
Once the cookies have cooled, give each Hulk cookie a set of small candy eyes by dabbing a small amount of black frosting on the backs and pressing onto the cookie.
Use a rolling pin to roll out the white fondant and cut fondant into small rectangles using your paring knife.
Turn the paring knife over and gently press into the fondant making it look like teeth.
Place a small dab of the black frosting on the back and place on the cookie for the Hulk’s mouth.
Lastly, use the black frosting to make the Hulk’s hair – simply squeeze back and forth in a short motion over the top of the cookie.
