2. Chocolate Chip Spider Cookies
Everybody loves chocolate chip cookies, so why not take this classic cookie to the next level for Halloween? Try chocolate chip spider cookies.

3. Bite-Sized Boo Bites
Love shortbread cookies? Bake some bite-sized boo bites. These tiny shortbread cookies are made with nonpareils, adding a spooky twist to your favorite baked good.

Candy corn is one of the most festive seasonal candies. If you don’t love candy corn, but you love Halloween, bake some candy corn swirl cookies. These cookies don’t actually have any candy corn in them. Instead, they combine the colors of candy corn into a swirly, colorful, melt-in-your-mouth cookie.
5. Black Cat Cookies
If you do like candy corn, try some black cat cookies. These dark chocolate cookies are made in the shape of black cats and use candy corn and chocolate chips to add crunch, flavor, and texture. Use the candy corn as the eyes and the chocolate chips as the nose for a tasty, kid-friendly treat.

Halloween sprinkle cookies are an easy and tasty way to make your favorite cookie more seasonal. Bake some soft and chewy chocolate cookies and dip them in melted white chocolate. Then, add some Halloween-colored sprinkles to create the ultimate baked good.
7. Twix Cookies
You may be too old to trick or treat, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a tasty Twix. Instead of buying a bag of Twix, bake some Twix cookies. These shortbread cookies are packed with chocolate and caramel flavors.
8. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
Put your decorating skills to use by making an oatmeal chocolate chip Halloween cookie cake. Combine oatmeal and coconut sugar for a gluten-free dessert. Then, decorate the cookie cake with icing in the shape of a spiderweb with chocolate chips throughout.
9. Witch Hat Cookies
Witch hat cookies are cute and festive. They’re also easy to make. Use store-bought round crackers and coat them in melted chocolate. Then, add a chocolate kiss on top to resemble a witch hat.
10. Bat Oreos
Another easy cookie recipe that uses store-bought sweets is bat Oreos. Put an Oreo on a stick, coat it in melted chocolate, and cut another Oreo into quarters.
