A great treat to make with your kids at home or in the classroom for the annual Halloween party. We used store-bought ingredients just to make it easy for you.

Alternatives to Using Almonds

If you’re not an almond lover or just can’t eat nuts, feel free to substitute them. Pieces of pretzels or frosted cornflakes are a creative way to create vampire fang.

Can I make them with other types of cookies?

Chocolate chip cookies are damn awesome, but if you need other options, we can help. A simple sugar cookie works well. Add some nuggets to make the vampire sparkle. Oatmeal cookies would be a simple alternative if you want the flavor of the icing to be prominent. Dracula might like peanut butter, so this is a version to try too.
