If you don’t have candy eyeballs, use large or miniature marshmallows for eyes. Cut a large marshmallow in half crosswise, and attach a mini chocolate chip with frosting for eyes. You can make the unfrosted cookies ahead; store in airtight container, and decorate when you have time.


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Make regular-size cookies as directed on pouch. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, divide frosting into 3 bowls, about 3/4 cup each. Stir 1/4 teaspoon gel food color into each bowl of frosting to make 3 different colors.
  3. Frost bottoms of 2 cookies using same color; place about 6 mini marshmallows on frosting of one cookie for teeth. Top with second cookie, frosted side down.
  4. Spread another color frosting on top of sandwich cookie; attach gummy eyeballs and miniature marshmallow nose. Repeat for remaining cookies.
