Halloween Half Moon Cake Mix Cookies


For all of you that know me and read my blog, I am from Upstate  Utica, N.Y. We have some of the best bakeries in the world there, at least to me. Here is a recipe I would usually not post, ( I always make the original half moon cookie from scratch and is over the top fabulous). 

In our  hurried society we live in, you can enjoy these in no time at all without running out of time to make specialty treats like this one. This recipe will come in handy for all us working folks and moms who just run out of time with making things for school functions, benefits, large parties and just because they're so good. Did I mention you use a cake mix? Oh yes and you can make all kinds of flavored cake mixes and also frost them to whatever theme is going on. Fast to be a quick fix and pretty darn good!


 I have to say these are definitely pretty darn good and the kids loved them! If you want the original from scratch recipe along with my how to video please click here




These are so easy I feel guilty posting them!



1 white (18 oz box size) or any chocolate cake mix if you want chocolate moons (I even made spice ones!) 
Note: do not use a mix with pudding in it.

2/3 cup oil ( I used vegetable)
2eggs
1 can white frosting

1 can chocolate frosting ( I prefer homemade click here)

original half moons recipe site click this link to site
optional: tint frosting orange with food coloring


Sprinkles if using
Preheat oven to 350. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Combine all ingredients in a bowl mix until well blended.



Drop onto the cookie sheet in 2 tablespoon increments. I then take the back of a spoon to make sure they are smooth on top and round the sides to make perfect circles. They spread out just a little and the perfect thickness too! Bake at 350 until middles are set.





Cool completely. Frost flat sides,  half white half chocolate.
Note: tinted frosting is using 1 drop red food coloring 1 drop yellow. 
Some other ideas: baby showers, Christmas, breast cancer benefits, 4th of July and flag colors. Remember you can make these to whatever functions you have just tint them and decorate them any way you want! Have fun and enjoy. They are really delicious and I can't wait for you to try these!
