What Kind of Cookies are Best?
This is one of those awesome Halloween recipes where you can change it up to your liking! You can easily use any of these to create vampire cookies:
- Sugar Cookies
- Chocolate Chip cookies
- Oatmeal Cookies
- Peanut Butter Cookies
You only need four easy ingredients for this Halloween cookie recipe!
SUGAR COOKIES: I used premade cookies that I cut into cookie halves for this Halloween dessert, but if you have the time, you can make your own sugar cookies.
RED FROSTING: It’s easiest to use the red icing that comes in a tube or a bag with the pipping tip. This Betty Crocker Red Cookie Icing is just like icing that’s already in a piping bag! If you are using a traditional tub of icing, I like to put it in a piping bag to make it easier to pipe the frosting around the edges of the cookies to create the gums of the vampire mouth.
If you don’t have any piping bags, use a Ziploc plastic bag and cut a small hole in the corner to create your own. You can also use a vanilla frosting or white frosting by simply adding some red food dye.
MINI MARSHMALLOWS: These are what make your vampire teeth, so make sure you get the small ones!
CANDY CORN: I used these to create vampire fangs. They’re the perfect shape and keep the fall, Halloween theme going nicely. But if you don’t have candy corn, don’t like them, or want to use something else, you can use almond slivers or chocolate chunks in its place.
How to Make Vampire Teeth Cookies
Vampire teeth cookies are going to become your go-to quick Halloween recipe because it doesn’t get any easier than this!
STEP 1: Cut each cookie in half by using a sharp knife on a cutting board or hard clean surface.
STEP 2: Using a tube of icing, add the red frosting around the inside edge of each cookie half to create the gums of the vampire mouth.
If using a tub of frosting, add red dye and mix well until you reach the desired color. Next scoop the frosting into a piping bag and pipe the frosting on to the cookie halves.
STEP 3: On the bottom cookie half, place mini marshmallows to create vampire teeth. The mini marshmallows will stick to the red icing.
STEP 4: Now to add vampire fangs – use 2 candy corn pieces and use a dab of frosting to glue them on to the front of the cookie.
STEP 5: Add the second cookie half on top to create the top part of the mouth. And that completes the whole vampire teeth cookie!
And that’s it! So easy to create.
- I like using sugar cookies as they’re an easy base to work with for any dessert, but you can swap this out for any other flavored cookies. I think I’d use homemade chocolate chip cookies since they’re easy to work with and would taste well with the other ingredients. Really you can use any kind of cookie for this cute dessert.
- If you find that your candy corn fangs don’t want to stick to the cookies, add a few more small dots of frosting to help hold them on.
- If you only have vanilla frosting, simply add a few drops of red food coloring to make it look like the gums on the vampire teeth cookies.
How To Store
Any leftover spooky treats should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. It is important to note that they will probably dry out when it’s getting close to the 3 day mark.
When I make these cookies, they don’t even last past the occasion or party that I make them for, they’re always a huge hit! So I never have to worry about storing them. The good news is, I bet yours will go fast too, so hopefully storing won’t be necessary for you either.
Ready in just a few minutes with only a handful of ingredients, these Vampire Teeth Cookies will be the hit of the dessert table! They’re so easy to make, they’ll become your new favorite Halloween recipe to make each year.
