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.
