This easy monster cookie cake is a super simple dessert to make for all of your Halloween parties! This giant cookie is an adorable crowd pleaser!
I was sitting at a friend’s BBQ over the summer and the topic of party desserts came up. As in, we were talking about all how our parents grabbed a cake from the store and had them put our names on it, or they picked up a ton of cupcakes. These days, especially living in LA, I have seen it all. Ice cream carts, cotton candy artists (yep, those exist), mini desserts that look like a mosaic…. and these are at KIDS parties. One of the things we missed most were those giant cookies; you know the ones I’m talking about. Chocolate chip cookies the size of your head (or bigger) instead of a cake. We’ve pretty much had them at every gathering since and I’ve gotta be honest… BEST DECISION EVER!!!
MAKE IT: Halloween Glow in the Dark Slime
This particular project, how stinkin cute is it?!? I had the candy eyes left over from my Hank the Octopus bark last year and then I thought I lost them and was about to buy more until I realized they were in a prop box – Someone help my unorganized self! Anyway, I found them and decided, yep. This is happening.
You really can’t mess this monster cookie cake up and I had very few dishes to do at the end so kitchen win!
