You know the classic graham crackers and frosting mom used to make. I mean, that I make now, anytime I have leftover frosting!! Seriously they are irresistible.
I am a homemade frosting fanatic, and for me, any flavor frosting works in graham cracker sandwich cookies.
And making these for Halloween is so easy with cute sprinkles.
The easiest cookies for Halloween
If you've clicked around the site, you know that I love spooky, cute Halloween cookies. I love decorating them with spooky spirals, chocolate skeletons, and leftover Halloween candy.
Sometimes I need something that's a little more hands-off and just as delicious.
Make graham cracker Halloween treats in minutes
Halloween is already hectic enough. With all the costume logistics and party scheduling, there is little time left over for elaborate treat making.
Everyone wants to bring a yummy homemade treat to the neighborhood Halloween gathering or family party, but sometimes there isn't time.
These cookies for Halloween are perfect for when you want something quick that looks adorable and tastes homemade. *But seriously, homemade frosting is the key!
Easy Graham Cracker Dessert
I love graham crackers. I eat them straight out of the box regularly. And don't get me started on graham crackers and milk. My fave!
As a kid, I loved taking a cracker square and slathering it with frosting. Even better, sandwiching it together and letting it get soft. It only takes about an hour to soften!
Some people make their own graham crackers, but I love store-bought ones. If you want to try to make your own, go right ahead, but that kind of defeats the point of this easy graham cracker dessert.
For a truly effortless recipe, take two squares right out of the box and slather them with rich, homemade frosting and make that sandwich cookie.
Halloween after-school snack
These cookies were always the best after-school snack. And this version is perfect for fall! All through October you can serve these with a tall glass of milk and it will make the world just right.
Graham cracker cookies are also genius for a sack lunch treat. Don't forget to add a dessert to those lunch boxes. What a great surprise to get one of these!
The best graham cracker frosting combo!
The frosting is key. I know, some of you like the store-bought kind in the can, but not me! I have loads of super popular homemade frostings on the blog. Some of my very favorites are my Fluffy Vanilla Frosting, Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting, and Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting.
Also, try Classic Cream Cheese Frosting or Lemon Frosting! You can use whatever you like in these cookies for Halloween!
If you end up using a white frosting, you could even add a few drops of green or orange food coloring to make an extra festive Halloween treat.
It really doesn't matter what frosting you use between those grahams. Any flavor will do in my opinion.
You want the frosting to be stiff enough that it won't leak out the sides when you make your sandwich. Make sure you use enough confectioners' sugar and keep it at room temperature only if it's not too hot in the room. Otherwise keep the frosting chilled.
Let the frosting soften a bit out of the fridge or it won't spread easily. "Bake" away!
