So, perhaps you are not up for making a full out Jack Skellington Surprise cake, or doing Ooogie Boogie cupcakes, and hey, that’s fine with me! You can still do Nightmare Before Christmas themed desserts in a far less time consuming way. This cookie snake is literally just making two kinds of cookies and arranging them with minimal decoration, but being able to make it on the fly doesn’t mean it isn’t still delicious!

What you need:

  • 1 Package of sugar cookie mix (or your own sugar cookie recipe)
  • Orange food coloring to add to the sugar cookie dough
  • 1 Package chocolate chunk cookie mix, or other dark cookie flavor
  • White frosting
  • Black decorating frosting or two M&Ms

1. Make cookie dough according to recipe. Don’t forget to mix the orange food coloring into the sugar cookie dough!

2. Bake cookies according to recipe or package instructions. For the sugar cookies, depending on if you use a drop or cut out method, make sure you have at least two that are fairly large and flat.

3. Once cookies are baked, allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.

4. Arrange cookies alternating the chocolate and sugar cookies.

5. For the head, cut one of the large flat sugar cookies into a large wedge. Use the white frosting (I had some left over from other projects… and to still have it around is a huge feat!) to create two eyes and the black frosting or M&Ms for pupils.

6. For the tail, cut a smaller, longer wedge. Place both of these on either end of the snake.

You’re done! Delicioussssssssssssss

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • I love finding inspiration in new places, and when @bearded_horror shared artwork by @xsullo a week or so ago, I knew I had to give it a try as a makeup! Seriously, such amazing art. I hope I did it justice! Check out their profile to see even more incredible works and compare to the original.
  • After this photoshoot im not sure how to go back to my plain black background... I mean if there isn’t ominous fog in the background, does it really even count?!?! #fogmachine #clownmakeup #scareactress #hauntlife #evietheclown
  • This is my level of excitement right now! The love I have gotten for Evie over the past few days have been amazing, thank you all so much! #clown #clownmakeup #clowns #hauntlife #scareactress
  • That’s not a Wiley grin, that’s me clamping my teeth together so I stopped chattering. This spring was BRUTAL in SD, and it was in the 30s when we shot this in an unheated parking garage. #clowningaround #clownmakeup #scareactor #scareactress #hauntlife
  • Evie is probably my favorite full-costume character I’ve created to date. It’s so fun to think a practice look I made for haunt last year will be a fully fledged character come haunt season next year! Also, I NEED these light bars @jibclimmer used in this shoot. If anyone has a few hundred dollars to donate to the cause just let me know. 😉 #clown #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #hauntlife #makeupartist
  • If only @grave_digger_the_clown would learn to share, Evie wouldn’t have to steal his shovel! #justclowningaround #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife photography credit goes to the incredibly talented @jibclimmer
  • Hey guys! It’s been a hell of last few months, but trust me, I’ve been busy! I’d like to introduce my newest character, Evie the Clown! Thanks so much to @jibclimmer for these incredible photos... more to come very shortly. #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife
  • Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more. 
Super excited that my family is NOT doing gifts this year! We are all just bringing a side dish, dessert, and a board game for some quality family time. What are you doing for Christmas? #thegrinchwhostolechristmas #whoville #grinch #grinchchristmas #christmasmovies #grinchmas
  • Even if I wanted to go, my schedule wouldn't allow it! 4 o'clock: wallow in self pity. 4:30: stare into the abyss. 5 o'clock: solve world hunger (tell no one). 5:30: jazzercise. 6:30: dinner with me, I can't cancel that again! 7 o'clock: wrestle with my self loathing. I'm booked! Course if I bump the loathing to 9 I can still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear! #thegrinchwhostolechristmas #whoville #grinch #grinchchristmas #christmasmovies
