Original recipe yields 2 dozen cookies



  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Beat the margarine and 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and the almond extract until completely incorporated. Mix in the pudding mix until smooth. Stir in the flour until just incorporated, then fold in the chocolate chips, mixing just enough to evenly combine.
  3. Form the cookie dough into 1-inch balls, and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Use your thumb to make an indent into each cookie.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 10 to 14 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the filling by stirring 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar in a bowl with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, milk, and food coloring. Add additional milk as needed to make the mixture smooth. Spoon a little of the green filling into each cooled cookie, and top with a candy kiss.

These were a big hit with my niece and nephews! Green Booger cookies for Halloween and they taste great! And now that I know what they look like when they're done, I can make the next batch look like eyeballs by using vanilla pudding mix and white chocolate chips, colored frosting in the thumbprint and a chocolate chip in the center. Plus a little red frosting drizzled on the white cookie part to look like a bloodshot eyeball!!!

me and all my friends liked the cookies but i know why they call them monster cookies. They make a monster load of cookies. Next time I am only making half the batch.



easy, easy to make and the kids loved husband too...I used green decorating icing in a tube....faster....the Trick or Treaters had lots of comments when they were told the name! My niece has already requested them next Halloween for her class.
