Let’s face it, Halloween is all about sweets and candy. Monsters know a lot about cookies and candy.
We know how to make them and where to get the right dirt to haunt them good.
Everyone looking for recipes often ends up on a post on Pinterest called Spooky Cookies. However, not all turn out well. I, myself, had to make some small little adjustments to the recipe to make it work. Working with blog recipes, sometimes seem so easy and too good to be true! It usually is.
This recipe though, impressed me because it didn’t need many adjustments to make it work. I followed the recipe to the letter the first time, then when ready, made the proper changes to have it ready for Halloween along with some Worm Cakes!
Zombie Eyeballs Cookies!
To be able to make the cookies, of course, you need the list of ingredients. You can follow the complete directions on the blog Love To Be In The Kitchen website, or here with adjustments to make sure it works awesomely – it’s only one detail. Haha!

1/2 cup of white sugar.
1/2 cup of Special Dark Hershey’s Cocoa Powder.
1 1/2 cup of Hershey’s milk chocolate chips.

Cookies & Zombie Eyeballs
You’ll notice that I use baking powder instead of baking soda, I disregard the vanilla and salt as well because of the amount of sodium found in either baking soda or baking powder.
The other difference is that I also add black gel coloring to the mixture and add the eyeballs only once the cookies are out of the oven. You have to add them while the dough is still hot so that they stick to the cookies.
Those are my adjustments. I hope it works well for you as well!
To all, I wish a super spooky Halloween!
NOTE: Zombie eyeballs were used during the making of the cookies, but they didn’t feel anything well, because they are zombies.
