I created this recipe using Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough for their Halloween recipe contest. It didn’t win, but I think it adorable, plus it is super easy to make with your kids this Halloween.
Sweet Green Monster Cookie (Serves 30)
2 packages Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars
1 tub (16 oz.) vanilla frosting
30-40 drops green and/ neon-green food coloring
2 Junior Mints
1 red licorice string
1 Tootsie Roll (2” piece)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 9” x 13” pan with non-stick aluminum foil, leaving enough room at both ends to pick up the cookies once baked. Pat cookie dough into pan. Bake 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Allow cookie to cool completely. Use tin foil to help lift cookie out of pan and place on a serving platter or a piece of cardboard wrapped in a black plastic tablecloth.
Mix green food coloring into frosting. Take two marshmallows and set them upright on the counter. Smash them until they flatten a little into a bumpy circle. Frost the marshmallows in green frosting and set on either side of the monster’s head to form his ears. Frost the entire cookie with the green frosting reserving little bit to frost his nose.
Cut one large marshmallow into 3 round slices. Set 2 marshmallow slices, sticky side up, next to each other on the cookie for the monster’s eyes. Place 1 Junior Mint on each marshmallow for his pupils. Set the third marshmallow slice under the eyes for his nose. Cover the nose with green frosting. Add a red licorice smile.
Cut the Tootsie roll into three slices. Place one slice of the Tootsie Roll on either side of the monster’s neck for his bolts. Warm the remaining slice of Tootsie Roll in your hands. Roll it into a long thin log. Cut a 1” piece from the log and 3-4 smaller pieces. Lay the smaller pieces across the long piece creating a stitch pattern. Set on the monster’s forehead.
