These Dracula Dentures are clever and tasty. This is a recipe that's not only fun to look at but good to eat. the-girl-who-ate-everything.comMy biggest issue with Halloween food is that although it may look cool, rarely does it actually taste good.

I knew when I saw these that not only were they unique but they were made from chocolate chip cookies and frosting, something I could totally sink my teeth into. These took 2nd place by Lori Fillmore in the Nestle 2010 Spooktacular Baking Contest. Thanks for the creative recipe!

I host our annual Halloween Bunko party every year and I’m always looking for fun and festive Halloween recipes.

  40. I’d love for you to add a picture of these to my first every link party. You might be the lucky entrant who wins $70 in baking supplies for adding your Halloween pictures. http://www.hungryhappenings.com/2012/10/share-your-fun-halloween-edible-crafts.html

  41. Love these! We have a couple of kids at the party with nut allergies. Can you suggest something instead of the almonds?

    • For the person who has the nut allergic kids… I was thinking the same thing. I am going to make these too, and we also have those allergies. I’m thinking just pipe some white frosting down from the cookie, or like someone said, use pumpkin seeds. Other ideas may be to use a sliced piece of apricot dipped in white chocolate, or a slice of something like a gummy candy, or candy corn if you can find nut-free. Good luck!

  42. These turned out so great! (And look sooo good!) We want to feature you in our blog tomorrow on our top Halloween treats from around the web! Thanks for the inspiration and be sure to check it out!

  51. These look amazing! Halloween Office Bake Off recipe inspired! Thank you x

  52. Love this!

  53. Bahahaha!!! Love it!!! 😂😂😂😂😂

  54. Hi, Adorable idea! Thanks. Do you have any ideas about what else could be used for the teeth instead of nuts (for a nut free classroom)? I saw some online with marshmallow teeth, but wondering if anyone has any other ideas.

  55. These look so cute and I would love to make them for a Halloween party that our fire co. is having for the neighborhood kids. Could I freeze them without a problem?

  56. Cindi O'Connor says:

    I loved your easy instructions. You might want to add that the top cookie should be placed a little behind the marshmallows. I lined the top cookie up with the bottom cookie. When I looked back at this site, I realized I shouldn’t have done that. It still looks great, but I should have set the top cookie back a little more. Thanks!

  57. I made these yesterday for an office party, they were a huge hit! Our theme involved red foods, so I upped the ante with red glitter gel piped along the top “gum” which sat overnight and kind of ran down into the teeth, not as much as I wanted, but next time I might try dyed corn syrup. I didn’t have time to fuss with the fangs, they were cute/scary enough without.

  58. Love these cookies!! But for those of us who aren’t experienced bakers, be wary of the red food dye/your fingertips. Was planning on bringing them into my office, but saw my stained fingers and could just see the sweet-loving attorneys unhappily walking into court with red dyed fingers… and hearing about it forever… a reluctant no-go from me. The ones I did put together looked terrific, though!
