Halloween is THIS week but it kind of snuck up on me. I really wasn't ready for it. There is so much going on and so much to do from now until Christmas that my to do list is overflowing and so are my stress levels.
So any way that I can make a class party or neighborhood dinner a little easier on myself this time of year, I will do it.
And after whipping these up, the cookies were gobbled up by hungry ghosts and goblins pretty quickly.
They loved the monster eyes and I loved that it just took me a few minutes to whip these up.
And if you haven't been a fan of cake mix cookies in the past, don't worry. I've tried the two ingredient cake mix cookies and they are terrible! I do not suggest them. These cookies are delicious tasting when made with the adjustments listed below. And the great thing is you can easily adapt these cake mix cookies for allergies.
Here are some other great Halloween favorites we love:
EASY Monster Halloween Cake Mix Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet and set aside.
In a mixing bowl with the mixer set to medium low, stir together all ingredients minus the monster candy eyes.
Roll dough into one inch balls and place on cookie sheet leaving a couple of inches space in between cookies. lightly press 1-3 monster eyes into each cookie.
