This Halloween cookie pie makes an easy Halloween treat for your family or a party, and decorating the delicious cookie pie base is fun for the whole family. Rolos®, REESE’s Peanut Butter Cups, and Kit Kat® bars steal the show, and chocolate frosting adds spooky decorations!
One of my very favorite parts of any holiday is getting the kids involved. And at our house, Halloween always includes a ton of fun family participation.
From picking out costumes, to planning which friends they’re going to trick or treat with, to planning our annual Halloween party…it’s a fun but busy time of year!
Honestly, our Halloween party is one of my favorite parties of the year.
Seriously, what could be more fun than throwing a party for a bunch of kids dressed up in the goofiest costumes you can imagine?
And because my kids are artistic (and so am I), I’m always trying to come up with fun Halloween treats and decorations for the party, like my mint chocolate chip Halloween dip, monster pudding cups, Halloween party favor bags, and DIY halloween glasses.
Seriously, Halloween is so much fun!
Spooky Halloween Cookie Pie
One of my favorite Halloween treats is this cookie pie recipe.
Instead of the more common chocolate chip cookie pie (which is one of my favorite Christmas treats from my childhood), this cookie pie crust skips the chocolate chips. Instead, it makes use of chocolate on the top to create a really fun Halloween theme.
Of course, you don’t have to skip the chocolate chips. Because my cookie pie uses a fairly basic cookie dough recipe, you could always throw in some extras if you want, like semi sweet chocolate chips, toffee bits, or peanut butter chips.
I also love how this cookie pie comes out, with the perfect balance of crispy on the edges and chewy in the centre. Because of the size of this sucker, it tends to stay pretty soft and chewy for the most part, making it a great option if you’re a soft and chewy cookie lover!
And another great thing about this cookie pie recipe? It comes together so quickly. It’s a great option if you want a Halloween-themed dessert for your party, but don’t have a ton of time.
Halloween Cookie Pie Decorations
Even if your kids aren’t too into making the cookie pie crust, I’ve no doubt they’ll love the decorating part! That’s what makes this cookie pie so fun – it’s a whole family kind of baking project.
Once baked and completely cooled, I piped frosting around the edges and used pieces of orange Kit Kat® bars to give it that extra Halloween theme!
However, my absolute favorite part is the little spider, made with a Rolo® and some extra frosting! How cute is that?
Cookie Pie Variations
This cookie pie recipe will work for other occasions, of course. Anytime you need a gigantic cookie that’s still soft and chewy, you can call rely on my cookie pie!
Cookie Pie Crust Variations
In this version, I eschewed chocolate chips, but a chocolate chip cookie pie is pretty much a guaranteed hit. Just add 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips to the cookie batter and you’re good to go.
Seasonal Cookie Pie Ideas
You can easily adapt this cookie pie recipe for different holidays.
For Valentine’s Day, make it in the shape of a heart and top it with red and white M&Ms, red, pink, and white sprinkles, chocolate hearts, etc.
For an Easter Cookie Pie, this cookie pie can get topped with all sorts of Easter Candy. Try out Mini Eggs, Jelly Beans, Peeps, or Easter Bunny Butts!
And when Christmas comes round, you could spell out Ho Ho Ho with Rolos® and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (inspired by my Christmas cherry pie), use crushed candy canes, sprinkles, or other holiday candies.
I think you get the idea! This cookie pie is seriously versatile, and easy, too!
- 1/2 cup softened, unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 granulated white sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
- Orange Halloweeen Kit Kat® bars
- Chocolate Frosting (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8″ or 9″ pie dish. In addition to greasing the pie dish, you can also line the bottom with a round of parchment paper, which will make it easier to lift the cookie pie out at the end.
- In a mixing bowl, add softened butter, sugars, egg and vanilla and mix with a hand mixer until well blended.
- Add in flour, baking soda and salt, and mix until just combined.
- Pat the cookie dough into the greased pie dish.
- Spell out "boo" using your Rolos® and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Press them candies down into the cookie pie until they’re almost level with the dough.
- Bake for about 24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let it cool completely before decorating.
- Fill a piping bag with chocolate frosting, and pipe the edges of the cookie pie, inserting extra candies such as orange Halloween Kit Kat® bars or Rolo® chocolates along the edge.
- Optional, add one or several "spiders" to the top of the cookie pie, using a Rolo® as the body and piped frosting for the legs.
