Ingredients used to make vampire cookies
You can either choose to bake this recipe from scratch by making your own cookies or if you’d prefer to just do the decorating part, you can use shop-bought cookies instead.
- Chocolate chip cookies – sliced in half to create the mouth. If you want to bake your own, check out my favourite chewy chocolate chip cookies recipe.
- Icing sugar mixed with red food colouring – mixed with a little water to create a bright red icing that’s spread onto the cookies.
- White mini-marshmallows – typically mini-marshmallows come in a pack of white and pink, so just pick out the white ones to use for the teeth.
- Milkybar buttons – sliced in half to create fangs. You’ll only need a small treat-sized bag of buttons.

- 10 Chocolate chip cookies either bake your own or use shop-bought
- 250-300g Icing sugar
- 1 tbsp Water
- Red food colouring
- White mini marshmallows
- 1 small bag Milkybar buttons
- Use a sharp knife to cut the cookies in half and turn them upside down.
- Mix together 250g icing sugar with 1 tablespoon of water to make a thick but spreadable icing. If the icing is too thick add a drop of water at a time until you reach the right consistency, if it's too thin add more icing sugar.
- Now stir in a few drops of red food colouring to make a bright red icing.
- Spread the red icing on top of the cookie halves.
- Place the marshmallows around the edge of one cookie half.
- Place the other cookie half on top and gently press down so the icing oozes out.
- Chop the Milkybar buttons in half to make the fangs. Stick them into the icing leaving roughly 4 marshmallows between each fang. For added effect, use a cocktail stick dipped in red food colouring to dye the bottom of the fangs red.
- Allow the icing to set for 10-15 minutes, then tuck in and enjoy!
