Pillsbury HAD these on their site, but when I checked there for tips, all I could find was a picture. So, using their pic for inspiration, I made my own. I just served these up as the aftergame snack for my son's soccer team on his birthday weekend. They were a HUGE hit!!! I hope they are with all of you too!

How To Make little chomp-monsters

  • 1
    Bake or buy cookies. Let cool. I use the recipe on the Nestle chocolate bits bag. Other cookie flavors would work great too... use your imagination.
  • 2
    Put a mound of frosting on just abour 1/3 of the bottom of one cookie. Press a second cookie on it at an angle so the cookies are bottom to bottom at an angle kind of like an open mouth.
  • 3
    Decorate the mouth with candy corn or M&M teeth, add marshmallow eyes and M&Ms or whatever other candy you want to use.

    The original Pillsbury pic had what looked to be licorice whip as eyebrows... I couldn't find licorice string type candies in the stores, so mine went browless! :)

    A GREAT FROSTING: Beat butter and vanilla. Add powdered sugar slowly so you don't have a kitchen that looks like snow flurries like I had the other day. Add milk and beat till creamy. Seperate into bowls and add food coloring. Now have fun and decorate some Little Chomp-Monsters
