Candy corns are probably the most CLASSIC Halloween candies out there.

Many of us  (a.ka. me!) wait all year to STOCK up on them…lol.

I used their VIBRANT colors and TRIANGULAR shape to INSPIRE the design of these candy corn monster cookies.

Aren’t they just DARLING?!

Btw, don’t you think the white ones kinda look like GHOSTS rather than monsters?!

Oh well…who cares?! They are still adorable!

My son kept asking why they DON’T have mouths…lol.

I tried telling him that they looked CUTER this way But, he wasn’t getting it…haha.

To make these candy corn monster cookies, you will need the following SUPPLIES:

Chocolate sugar cookies (Triangle shaped)
Orange buttercream icing or royal icing
Yellow buttercream icing or royal icing
White buttercream icing or royal icing
3 piping bags
Tip # 21 (Star tip)
M&M candies
Black edible marker

Notes:
–  I cut the triangular shapes of the cookies, freehandedly. But, you can use a triangle cutter too and that would make things so much easier.
– I used buttercream icing to decorate these cookies because I personally its taste better than royal icing. But, if you are planning on packaging these and using them as gifts or party favors…then, I highly recommend using royal icing because it dries hard.

These are the INSTRUCTIONS:

Step 1:
Fill a piping bag with yellow icing and attach Tip # 21.
Hold your bag at a 45 degree angle at the bottom of the cookie.
Squeeze your bag util icing comes out.
Now, start moving your hand in a right-left motion rapidly.
This should result in a beautiful row of swiggly ruffles.

Start moving your hand in a right-left motion rapidly until you end up with a row of swiggly ruffles.

Step 5:
You will notice that one side of the cookie will have some messy and droopy ruffles.
That can be fixed easily…
Just run a spatula along the side of your cookie downwards and no more messy ruffles! Yay!
