Jack O'Lantern Nilla Wafers

I get excited each year when Spooktacular September comes around! It's my favorite way to gear up for Halloween. Fall is always such a busy time of year for me, so I try to come up with quick and easy ideas to celebrate.
Jack O'Lantern Nilla Wafer Cookies

This year I altered my Nilla Wafer basketball cookies into Jack O'Lanterns for cute and easy treats for Halloween gatherings.

Mixing Frosting

The Nilla Wafers have a frosting center. I used store-bought vanilla frosting I mixed with food coloring, but feel free to use your favorite frosting recipe.

Drawing Face

Simply draw a face onto Nilla Wafer cookies as shown using a black food marker.

Adding Frosting

Next pipe a small dollop (what a fun word) of frosting onto the bottom of another cookie. Sandwich the two together and the frosting will spread, filling out the cookie. Make sure you just add a little or else it will all just squeeze out of the sides.

And that's it! You could also add a marked cookie onto a store-bought cupcake as a topper for another last minute Halloween treat.
