Creepy Crawly Fossil Cookies

I’m excited to introduce to you today, one sweet and talented girl that you can’t help but adore. I know I sure do! Her blog is full of all kinds of crafts, DIYs, recipes, etc. It’s one of my very favorites! Give it up for Katie, friends:

Hello High Heels & Grills readers! I am thrilled to be here today to do a post for Sarah. She is just a doll, isn’t she? Her recipes are Uh-mazing. But you all know that. My name is Katie, and I blog over at Katie{Did}It, where I share lots of DIY projects, crafts, decor, and some recipes. I would love for you to stop by some time and say hi!

SO, what I have for you today, is a fun Halloween treat. My friend and I started up a craft club (anyone in the Fort Worth, Texas area?!), and I am hosting our first meeting on October 6th. So I wanted to have some fun treats for the girls while we are crafting up a storm together! I found this idea on Martha Of course. Good ol’ Martha.

Here is what you’ll need to make these creepy crawly fossil cookies:

  • Ready to mix cookie dough (or pretty much any cookie dough of your choice)
  • Food safe plastic creepy crawly bugs

So I used this ready to mix peanut butter cookie dough. It’s nice when you just want to get something in the oven quick, or you don’t have the time or all the ingredients on hand to make them from scratch. I mixed these up real quick, and then put a table spoon of dough in my hand and flattened it out with the palm of my hand. Lay these “stone shaped” cookies on a greased piece of foil, or parchment paper.

Next, take your creepy crawly and coat it in flour. Then lay it face down in the cookie dough “stones” you have on the cookie sheet. Press it gently into the dough to make a good impression. Repeat this for the rest of your cookies. Once you have done this to all of them, remove the creepy crawly from the dough, and place the cookie sheet in the freezer. Leave them in the freezer to firm up for about 15-20 minutes.

Bake the cookies according to package (or your recipe) directions. And voila! Fossil cookies!

What do you think? Are these fun or what?! I really love the way they turned out, and I can’t wait to make them again for the Craft Club Meeting! I think everyone will just eat them up… Baha!

Well, I hope you guys liked this fun and easy little treat. They would be great for any Halloween party, favor, or for a fun after school snack for your kids!

I would love to see these if you make them, so stop on by over at Katie{Did}It, and let me know how they turned out! Or just say to say hey! And if you need more Halloween inspiration, check out my series 15 Tricks to Treat Your Halloween, which Sarah also participated in! Thanks again Sarah, for having me! Muwah!

    What a simple idea. Why didn’t I think of that? My kids would love to help with this. My weekly linky party–One Creative Weekend–has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit “One Creative Weekend” on (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
