Monster Cookies! These creepy and creamy Nutella no-bake cookies are perfect for the season. And better yet, the kiddos can help make them. Each little monster cookie is different and unique, but they all taste fantastic.
My son’s favorite part to create is drawing on the eyes. We originally tried making these with the little candy eyeballs you can buy premade, but we didn’t like how hard they were. The large ones were like jaw breakers. So, we invented our own edible eyeballs. He and I both agree that these were much more fun to make anyway.
Anyway, the ingredients are simple:
- 3/4 cup Nutella
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 cup rolled oats
- Colorful marshmallows
- Edible candy markers
- Mix all ingredients well in a large bowl.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Roll the mixture into about 1.5" size cookie balls while they're sticky.
- Press a little dot into each cookie ball, and place the marshmallow. These are going to be the eyes, so add as many as you'd like per monster cookie. You may have to reform the cookie a little around the marshmallow.
- Use your candy markers to draw pupils onto the marshmallows. This is where you can be really creative. You can mix and match, add eyelashes, eyebrows, and more.
- Store in the fridge.
- Remove from fridge a few minutes before serving.
- Yields about 12 cookies
These would even be fun for a classroom or birthday party. You could even allow each child to decorate their own cookie eyes.
Let the kids imaginations soar!

Love the idea of No-Bake Nutella cookies but not the marshmallow eye? Simply leave it out of the recipe.
