Ingredients

  • 1 pouch (17.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ Sugar Cookie Mix
  • Butter and egg called for on cookie mix pouch
  • 1/4 cup from 1 container (1.70 oz) Betty Crocker™ Spooky Sprinkles
  • 1 container (2.25 oz) Betty Crocker™ Black Sugar, Green Sugar or Orange Sugar (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 package (0.88 oz) Betty Crocker™ Dessert Decorations Candy Eyeballs

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, softened butter and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in 1/4 cup candy sprinkles.
  • 2
    Shape dough into 36 (1 1/4-inch) balls; heavily roll balls in colored sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Discard any remaining colored sugar after rolling balls.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Change up the look of these Monster Eyeball Sugar Cookies by rolling cookie dough balls in two or three of the different colored sugars or even mixing together two of the colored sugars.
  • tip 2
    Line cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper for easier clean up.
  • tip 3
    Using a cookie scoop makes quick work of portioning cookie dough, so these cookies will be the same size and will bake in the same length of time.
  • tip 4
    Monster eyeball cookies turn out best when baked one sheet at a time on middle oven rack. Allow cookie sheet to cool completely between batches. Otherwise, cookies will spread too much.
  • tip 5
    Mix it up, and try using different sizes of Betty Crocker™ Dessert Decorations Candy Eyeballs or Betty Crocker™ Black Decorating Cookie Icing.
