Frankenstein Oreo's

Ok, how cute are these little guys? I know that Halloween is supposed to be all about the spooky, but I couldn’t help myself. 

One thing I love about this tutorial is how forgiving it is. You do not need to make your Frankenstein’s perfect. Any imperfections give them added character!

Frankenstein Oreo's Ingredients

What you need to make Frankenstein Cookies:

The list of items is simple and most things can be found at a craft store! Always use candy melts and avoid attempting to dye your own chocolate.

  • Green Candy Melts
  • Edible Eyes
  • Chocolate Jimmies
  • Green M&M’s
  • Pretzel Sticks, broken into smaller pieces
  • Oreo’s (Double Stuffed preferred)
  • Black frosting
  • Popsicle Sticks

A few clarifications to the above:

  • Jimmies are the long bar sprinkles that are a little softer. They give a better “hair” look. 
  • Edible eyes can be found in most grocery stores now, but you can also order them on Amazon. 
  • Popsicle sticks are optional.

How to make Frankenstein Cookies:

  1. Melt your candy melts according to the package. If it seems too thick try adding 1-3 tablespoons of shortening (DO NOT use butter) to thin it out for easier dipping.
  2. Dip the bottom of your popsicle stick in the melted chocolate. Gently push into the center of one cookie. Allow to harden so the chocolate will help keep things together.
  3. Spoon melted chocolate over the entire cookie. Gently tap on your dish to remove excess.
  4. Working quickly insert one pretzel piece on each side for “ears”, sprinkle chocolate jimmies around the top of the cookie for the hair, and top with eyes and m&m for the nose.
  5. Use the black frosting to pipe on a mouth.

So what do you think? Easy enough that this would be a fun family project! Let your little ones get in on the the fun and pass these out to family and friends!

Just in case the instructions above are a little confusing I have got a cute little video tutorial for you below!
