If you are looking for an easy recipe that will bring second looks and laughter to Halloween festivities, this is it: Dracula’s Dentures! I wish I could take credit for these clever chocolate chip cookie choppers but we have to thank Lori Fillmore, a winner of last year’s Toll House Spooktacular Baking Activity Contest for her creativity. My contribution was the suggestion of the fizzy drink and brush prop! Lori’s inspiration for this treat was to create an easy recipe that her three children could help with in the kitchen and bring to a party. According to Lori, even Dracula himself will want to sink his teeth into these delicious cookies. I have to agree!
My daughter and I will be making some for my Dad to give to his friends where he is staying… that is if there are any left after he receives them! We’ll be sure to include a few brushes!
Ingredients for 24 sets of dentures:
1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough
1/2 cup prepared vanilla frosting, tinted red or pink
1 3/4 cups miniature marshmallows
48 (about 1 tablespoon) blanched slivered almonds
PREPARE cookies as directed on package. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely. Cut each cookie in half for a total of 48 halves.
FROST bottoms of all cookie halves with frosting. Place 6 marshmallow teeth around curved perimeter of 24 halves. Top with remaining 24 halves. For additional support, an additional marshmallow can be placed behind the teeth. Insert two almond slivers in between teeth for fangs. If fangs do not adhere, dip tips into frosting.
