Who doesn't love cookies? Kids sure do! These little monsters are the perfect treat for this Halloween season.


  • 1 box of gluten free yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (optional)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp. melted Vegan butter (unsalted)
  • Green, blue and purple food coloring
  • 2 packages candy eyeballs


Preheat your grill to 350°F. Close the flame broiler.

Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, melted butter, eggs (or egg substitute), powdered sugar, sugar (optional), and vanilla and stir until combined. (substitute 2 flax eggs for Vegan – 1 tbsp. flaxseed meal and 2.5 tbsp water per egg).

Divide dough between 3 bowls and dye each bowl a different color.(We used green, blue and purple).

Roll dough into tablespoon-sized balls.

Place about 2-in. apart on the baking sheet and grill until tops have cracked and the tops look set, 8-10 minutes. – Turn half way through baking, after 4-5 minutes.

Immediately, while the cookies are still warm, stick candy eyeballs all over the cookies.

Let cool completely before serving.
