Monster Face Cookies for the Chaotic Life

Monsters 

Life in our house has been a little chaotic lately. I won’t bore you with the to-do list because I know everyone has days, weeks, and even months like we’ve had. Just sayin’, when life is chaotic, I sometimes take the easy route with food.

So when we were visiting the local bakery one Sunday after church to get some delicious whipped cream filled doughnuts (because I didn’t feel like making a nutritious breakfast for my family) my son saw their monster face cookies and said “That’s what you need to make the next time you’re on TV.”

And here we are. Making these monster faced cookies for TV. Best idea ever for this frazzled lady.

When life is chaotic, I’m giving you permission to take the easy route. I didn’t say the less expensive route. I said the easy route. Heck, even if you don’t have a chaotic life, take the easy route. Now if you have the time, take the time to make the cookies and the frosting. But if time is not on your side, you can easily make these up with store bought items.

Just take 2 chocolate chip cookies or whatever kind suits your fancy. Get some frosting. Again, whatever suits your fancy. Slather it on or pipe it in like I did.

Normally, I would never buy the tubes of colored frosting from Wilton but I have to say, they are AWESOMELY easy. You can put any standard size decorating tip on the end, attach with a coupler, and you have instant colored icing in the design you want. I used Tip 21 and topped the eyes off with candy google eyes.

If you want, add more or less eyes and some hair. Make them your own monsters!
