We’ve got our eye on something delicious! Spooky One-Eyed Monster Cookies should be on your table this Halloween. What makes these cookies special? They are made with white cake mix so they’re really a hybrid of a cookie and a fluffy circle of cake! You can choose whatever colors you like, but we think the more vibrant the better. Our favorite place to get candy eyes is Target. These candy eyeballs taste delicious and you don’t feel like you’re going to chip your teeth when you bite into them.
