In October 2013 my husband came home from Afghanistan. Our first holiday together after that year long deployment was Halloween. Our kids were old enough to really begin enjoying the holidays and I wanted to do something special. Though we aren’t big on Halloween, the kids do dress up and Trick or Treat around the neighborhood. I decided to make a yummy Halloween dinner with Halloween themed treats for the kids. I made mummy hot dogs and a few other things. These Frankenstein Oreos would have been perfect for a Halloween dessert! We really enjoy making Frankenstein themed food!

Halloween Treats – Frankenstein Oreos

To get started with making your Oreo Frankenstein cookies, you’ll want to gather your ingredients. You’ll need Oreo Cookies, green candy coating (I used this), small candy eyeballs (I used these), chocolate morsels, black sprinkles, jimmies, or sugar, black decorating icing (I used this).  If you can’t find candy eyeballs, mint chocolate chip morsels are a great substitute!
