Happy Owl-oween!


I’m sending you wishes for a Happy Owl-oween. . .


Owl eyes are watching you. . .


Not scary, just sweet!


I found an owl cookie on Pinterest that’s a hoot to make!


This is more of a method than a recipe, adding your candy to your cookie to create an owl. You can be creative and use the candy and colors of your choice for a fun cookie for kids to decorate!


Use the cookie recipe of your choice. I used a sugar cookie as a base and a 3 1/2 inch round cookie cutter.


Peach gummi rings make the owl eyes (I found mine at Target), fill in the center with a shiny candy center, I used Reece’s Pieces.


Spread your cookie with frosting as the base for your candy to adhere to.


I found chocolate covered sunflower seeds at HomeGoods to use for the owl talons.


I used candy corn for the nose. My inspiration cookie had licorice cut for the eyebrows and I used Chocolate Twizzlers.


Add some chocolate jimmies or sprinkles to the body of your owl for feathers.


You can find another easy owl cookie recipe, here.


Christmas will be here before we know it. . . a very scary thought!
