Easy Monster Cookies

Easy Monster Cookies from a Cake Mix.  These cookies take 10 minutes, or less to make.  These Monster Inc cookies look so much like Mike Wazowski that they make me laugh inside.  Alohamora Open a Book  cookies, easy, cake fun,


Happy Halloween!  What are some of your best and easiest costumes?  On Facebook and Instagram I posted a pic of me in a Bad Kitty costume at work.  Tonight we went to a Trunk or Treat and my husband dressed up as Poor Puppy.  Apparently, not as many people read kidlit/picture books like I imagine.  We love Nick Bruel's Bad Kitty, Poor Puppy, and A Bad Kitty Christmas.  They are fantastic books. 

I'm all about candy eyes lately, they are so perfect for Halloween!  I'm also all about the neon food dye I have.  The green neon dye made the perfect Mike Wazowski Monster Inc. Cookies that were ridiculously easy to make.  

These Monster Cookies take only 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of effort.  Give them a go today!

These Monster Cookies and yesterday's Gruffalo Cookies are a perfect opportunity to do a little baking fun with your kids.  Kids of any age can stick an eye in the cookie.  My daughter LOVED putting the eyes in! 

Monster Cookies- Monster Inc. Cookies from a Cake Mix
Recipe: Alohamora
Active Time: 10 minutes
Inactive Time: 15 minutes

1 white cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 c. oil
1/2 tsp almond extract
Optional: candy eyes and food coloring.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or a baking mat. 
  2. In a stand mixer or medium bowl combine the first 4 ingredients until mixed well.  You can also add the food coloring of choice after initially mixing the cookies to provide the color of cookies you want to make.  
  3. Using a spoon place cookie dough balls on to the prepared pans.  I like to roll the cookie dough for a round cookie shape.  The dough is really quite sticky, but I found if your hands are slightly damp they will roll better and not stick to your hands as much.
  4. Place 1 candy eye in the center of every cookie, and then bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes until the cookies are done.
  5. Enjoy your cookies hot, warm, cold and with a beverage of choice! 
  6. Store leftover cookies in a sealed air tight container.  Make sure they are fully cooled before stacking them otherwise the cookies will stick together slightly in your container.
