On Tuesday, I saw these beautiful cookies posted on Facebook by Sweet Sugarbelle, and thought those would be PERFECT for my Girl's Night Out Halloween Party!!  But, I ran out of time {between Tuesday evening and Thursday evening} so I had to cheat a little bit ~ OK a lot!! I was so inspired to recreate these cookies, so I did what I had to do!! I originally had every intention to follow Sweet Sugarbelle's Creepy Eyeball Cookies recipe to the T, but you know how that goes. 

These are Sweet Sugarbelle's version: {Beautiful} find the full recipe and directions here.

And my version!!!

 Sweet Sugarbelle's came out prettier and by far more professional looking, but my girlfriends at Girl's Night Out sure liked them and so did my family!! That's all that matters right? I would have LOVED to have my cookies look just like Sugarbelle's ~ one can dream right?? You have to check out Sugarbelle's blog & if you have a FB page please show her some love and tell her BellaGrey Designs sent you. 

Now, I'll share with you how I decorated my cookies:

I made a regular sugar cookie dough and cut out large round circles. I then, gathered these fun things for the cookies

I love the sparkle gel ~ it's just so fun. Anyway, first I outlined the cookie like this

Then filled it in like this

and spread the frosting so it covers the cookie

then I uesed the white frosting and made small dots all over the cookie

See the peaks ~ you don't want those {that's why you should follow Sugarbelle's directions}

Then I added the black gel to make the eyes

For the individual eyeballs, I used some leftover cookie dough and rolled them into small bite size balls. I used the white frosting for the "white" part of the eye, then placed an M&M on top and topped it with a small dot of black gel. If I would've had red gel, I could've made the cracks in the cookies red veins for bloodshot eyes ~ maybe next time! Wouldn't that be great!!

I hope you have a wonderful Halloween and if you make these wonderful creepy eyeball cookies, I'd love to see photos!!!

Have a Super Great Day!!1
