I really like celebrating Halloween, especially now that I have a kid.  It is so fun to see my son dress up and go trick or treating.  My favorite part of Halloween though is all of the candy.  I a big candy fan, and I always buy extra Halloween candy so that we can have leftovers.  I love eating all of the Halloween candy and making fun Halloween recipes with it.
My son had a Halloween celebration with some of his friends so I decided to make some spooky treats.  I made a fun dessert, Monster Cookies.  While Monster Cookies are not scary, I thought the name was perfect for Halloween, plus they are delicious.  I added M&M’s and Snickers to the Monster Cookies.  I also decided to make a Bloody Hand Punch using Hawaiian Punch and 7UP.

I went to Walmart and picked up a some Halloween candy to use in my Monster Cookies and because I need to start stocking up for trick or treat night.  I picked up some Mars Candy mixed bags.  I grabbed a Mixed Fun Size 55 piece bag to use in my Monster Cookies, which includes Twix, Snickers, M&M Plain, and M&M Peanut.  I also grabbed the Mixed Miniatures 230 piece bag, which contains Milk Way, Twix, 3 Musketeers, and Snickers.  I also grabbed 1 Gallon of Fruit Juicy Red Hawaiian Punch and a 2 Liter of 7UP for making my Bloody Hand Punch.

These Snickers Monster Cookies were so delicious and everyone loved them.  I couldn’t stop eating them, they were addicting.  I decided to make Monster Cookies because I thought the name was spooky, but I also love the idea that it uses Halloween candy.  You can make these cookies using the Halloween candy that you have around the house.  Monster Cookies are a combination of peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate chip cookies.  I left the chocolate chips out and replaced them with the chopped Snickers, for a delicious peanut butter, oatmeal, Snickers, M&M cookie.
I used both regular M&M’s and peanut M&M’s.  I really liked the peanut M&M’s in the cookies, but you could use half or use one instead of the other. My favorite part though was the Snickers, they melted all throughout the cookie, yum!  I think these Snickers Monster Cookies are my new favorite cookie.  These would be great for a Halloween party, for using your leftover Mars Halloween candy, or for any time of the year.

I paired the Monster Cookies with Bloody Hand Punch.  The punch was made with Hawaiian Punch and 7UP.  I also added gummy worms and gummy eyeballs that I found in Walmart.  I then made a hand out of ice by freezing water in a medical glove to give the punch that spooky look.  The punch tasted great and is a fantastic punch for a Halloween party.  The punch was a great refreshment for the Monster Cookies.

Bloody Hand Halloween Punch

Bloody Hand Halloween Punch

Ingredients

  • 4 cups 7UP
  • 2 cups Hawaiian Punch
  • Ice
  • Surgical glove
  • Gummy Worms (optional)
  • Gummy eyeballs (optional)

Instructions

  1. To make the ice hand, take a non-powdered vinyl medical glove and fill with water. Make sure not to fill completely since ice expands. Twist the ends and rubberband to seal. Then lay flat and freeze. Once frozen, remove the surgical glove by cutting the palm side of the surgical glove and gently peeling the glove off the ice.
  2. Mix together the 7UP and Hawaiian Punch in a punch bowl. Add ice and the ice hand. Also add gummy worms and gummy eyeballs. Add them to the punch itself (they will sink). You can also add some gummy worms to the edge of the bowl.
