Let’s face it: It’s fun to play with our food. That’s why gingerbread houses are such a cherished part of the holidays. Constructing a mini-mansion out of cookie sheets and decorating it with candy is just plain fun whether you are 6 or 60. Now, cookie houses are becoming part of the Halloween season as well.
Oreo has unveiled an Oreo Monster Decorating Cookie Kit which will allow you and your family to create little mini-monsters out of Oreo cookies, icing, gummies and little candy beads.
It looks like a spook-tacular way to have fun!
Each Oreo Monster Decorating Cookie Kit comes with Oreos, icing and candy, and of course, the pre-made “monster” bodies. (To attach the Oreo “head” to the monster “body,” use the icing like glue.) Decorate the monster’s faces with icing, and use the candy pieces to create everything from eyes to hair to little vampire teeth.
You can find the Oreo Monster Decorating Cookie Kit on Amazon right now only from third-party sellers, at a price of $25.
Instagrammer @junkfoodmom says she found her kit at her local Kroger grocery store:
That’s not the only spooky decorating kit available this Halloween season.
Your kids can also try out the Rice Krispies Treats Pumpkin Kit. Each kit comes with everything you need to create adorable little Rice Krispies pumpkins — all you need are three tablespoons of butter.
Best of all, the plastic pumpkin molds are reusable so you can use them for other Halloween crafting and baking projects. You can buy the Rice Krispies Treats Pumpkin Kit on Amazon for $14.40.
You can also try this DIY kit for super-simple zombie cupcakes. The Crafty Cooking Kits Zombies! Stuffed Cupcake Kit makes it easy to create Instagram-worthy Halloween cupcakes, all thanks to the adorably creepy cupcake liners.
With the included purple and chocolate icing, you can put the finishing touches on your little zombie cupcakes and bring smiles to your Halloween party guests. Zombie brains never tasted so good!
It’s $24.99 on Amazon, so go ahead and buy a kit — if you dare!
