Peanut butter cookie dough (or sugar cookie dough)
Store bought chocolate cookies (I used Grasshopper cookies)
Chocolate icing (I used some Betty Crocker right from a can)
Green icing (I used buttercream icing tinted green)
Pink Starburst candies or mini M & M's or gumdrops (for the nose)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Take a golf-ball sized pinch of cookie dough and flatten slightly in your hand. Place one Hershey's kiss in the center of the dough and wrap dough around it, completely covering the Hershey's Kiss.
Roll in granulated sugar and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 for 10 minutes, until edges are barely brown and cookies are set. Let cool completely:
Trim a store bought chocolate cookie slightly on one side and press into cooled cookie.
Using scissors, snip off two pieces of a small marshmallow for eyes, adhere to chocolate cookie with a little chocolate icing. Add a piece of gumdrop (or whatever) for a nose and two chocolate chips for ears (again using chocolate icing as your "glue"). Add two small drops of chocolate icing for eye pupils.
Place green icing in a plastic baggie, snip off one end, and add some "grass" on your cookie.
Ask you kids if they saw his shadow as they gobbled him up!
