Tasty Thursday: Halloween Edition

DS and I made these last year for a Halloween treat. We used the sugar cookie mix instead of peanut butter and they were delicious! The recipe comes from

Monster Feet Cookies

1 bag M&M’S® Brand Peanut Chocolate Candies Pumpkin Patch Mix
1 17.5-oz. bag peanut butter cookie mix
1/2 cup flour
Green food coloring
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 16-oz. can vanilla frosting
2 cookie sheet pans
Aluminum foil
Resealable plastic bag
Step by step -->
What to do:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line sheet pans with foil.
Prepare the cookie mix according to package instructions. Knead in the flour and some of the green food coloring.
Pull off walnut-size nuggets of dough. Shape into 1 - 1 1/2-inch ovals and roll in sugar. Place on the prepared sheet pans about 2 inches apart. Press an M&M’S® Brand Peanut Chocolate Candies Pumpkin Patch Mix onto one end as the toenail. Bake for approximately 9-12 minutes, or until just golden and cookies have puffed and spread. Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
Meanwhile, tint 1 cup of frosting green and spoon into a resealable bag. Snip a very small corner from bag and pipe wavy curly lines on top of the cookies to resemble knuckles.
Tip: Peanut butter cookies aren’t a favorite, Then exchange the peanut butter cookie mix with a sugar cookie mix.
Makes 30 cookies.
