Who would turn down one of these adorable Snickerdoodle Blondie Bites? The chewiness of golden blondies meets the cinnamon sugar delight of snickerdoodle cookies in these bite sized treats.

We love sharing adorably delicious Halloween treats! You must try our Mummy Rice Krispie Treats and Vanilla Bean Cupcakes for more “mummy” themed goodies.

What is a Snickerdoodle Bite?

These blondies started from our favorite snickerdoodle cookie bars recipe!

Soft, sweet bars that are the perfect canvas to dress up with all kinds of flavors.

Love pecans? There’s a pecan pie blondies recipe for that. Love cake batter? There’s a cake batter blondie for that. You get the idea.

Today’s cookie bar recipe is for all you Snickerdoodle lovers out there! Sprinkled cinnamon sugar topping over the blondies and, to make it Halloween ready, added some stripes of vanilla frosting and candy eyes on top!

Unlike our brownie bites, these snickerdoodle bites are made in a 13×9 instead of a mini muffin tin.

If you love snickerdoodles, be sure to give our thick and chewy cinnamon cookies a try next!

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make halloween snickerdoodles.
  • Butter- we use unsalted butter in baking, to easily control the amount of salt. Use our guide on how to soften butter quickly!
  • Cream of Tartar- When paired with baking soda, the chemical reaction causes the dough to rise. Resulting in a chewy, cake-like texture!
  • Unsalted butter – I love using unsalted butter in my blondies to control the amount of salt in the recipe. If needed, feel free to use salted butter. Melt the butter before adding it to the cookie mix.
  • Candy eyes – I find candy eyeballs at Target, craft stores or online! They add such a fun touch to these blondies bites but, of course, the blondies will taste great without them too.

Step by Step Instructions

Cookie Batter.

  • Make the cookie dough as directed. Spread into a parchment paper lined 13×9 baking dish.

Bake.

  • Combine more cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and then sprinkle it on top of the batter.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted into the blondies comes out clean (about 22 – 25 minutes). While the blondies are cooling, prepare the frosting.

Cut shapes.

  • To make these into mummy bites for Halloween, use a round cookie cutter to cut into bite sized circles. Ours is about 1 inch.

Make the frosting.

  • Then, use a frosting bag to pipe overlapping white stripes onto the blondie bites. Add two candy eyes to the top of each one to complete the look!

Recipe FAQs

Where can I buy candy eyes?

I found mine at Target. I’ve also had luck purchasing them at craft stores like Michael’s or Joanne Fabrics, or there’s always Amazon!

Can you freeze Snickerdoodle bites?

These snickerdoodle bites freeze wonderfully! I’d recommend freezing them before adding the frosting and candy eyes for best results. They’ll keep in the freezer for about 2 months.

Can I make these cookie bars ahead of time?

Make the cookie dough up to 48 hours before baking. Store in refrigerator.

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13×9 baking dish with parchmen paper. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat butter with sugar for about 2 minutes. Add in eggs and beat until blended.
  • Add in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Beat just until dough comes together, do not overmix.
  • Pour cookie dough into prepared dish. Press dough evenly into the bottom of the dish.
  • In a little bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle generously over top of unbaked blondies.
  • Bake in oven for 22-25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Set aside to cool completely.
  • For the frosting, beat butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk until fluffy and smooth, about 3-5 minutes.
  • You can either spread frosting over cooled blondie bars and cut into squares. OR if you want to make the mummy bites, use a 1.5 inch cookie cutter to cut circles out of blondie bars.
  • Add frosting to a decorator bag with tip #48. Pipe stripes back and forth over bites, and add monster eyes or chocolate chips for the mummy eyes. Store in airtight container. ENJOY.

Notes

  • A number 48 frosting tip is my preferred way to make the mummy stripes. Alternate the smooth side with the more textured size to give these bites dimension and a more convincing mummy-like appearance!
  • Store Snickerdoodles Blondies in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • See blog post for more recipe tips and tricks.

  1. My snickerdoodle loving son will be home for fall break this weekend. Perfect timing—he’d love these!!! And so would I 🙂

  2. Oh Aimee, this made me laugh because I love Halloween – it’s actually one of my favorite holidays. BUT I totally feel you on the costumes 100%. Last year I convinced my daughter to use her dance costume and my son to wear his baseball uniform, but this year they’re not having it! ACK. On the bright side, I love these blondies. Snickerdoodle anything! #mottoforlife 

  3. I’ll admit that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because it gives my husband and I an excuse to dress up in goofy costumes.  But I totally get your stress about the costumes – I’m not a sewer, either!  These snickerdoodle bites are perfect for anytime of the year!

  4. I could not agree more about Halloween! These snickerdoodle bites are seriously adorable and fun and I love them! 

  5. I swear the little eyes need to be a part of every holiday! I’ve been eyeing these mixes in the baking aisle. I will have to try it!

  6. How cute! I love these. Feel free to send some my way next time you make them. I’ll gladly take any of your leftovers 🙂

  7. These are fantastic! So cute! I love blondies… never thought about baking them and then cutting them out but I really like the circular shape. I’m inspired! Pinned

  8. These are adorable. Those eyes peeking out of the box? Ridiculously cute. 

    Now about Halloween….or Hallooweener around here because we have Dachshunds who we dress up in costumes. We love dressing up! I hit up the thrift stores in the summer. You should see the velvet coat I got my husband as he is going to be Prince Charming. And the 3 girls are going to be Snow Whites with dad the prince. Can’t wait!! 

  9. Okay, I’m with you on Halloween. I really don’t like opening my door and seeing scary people on the other side. It goes against all my self-preservation instincts. And these scary people want to take my candy away from me. What gives?!
    These are the cutest darn blondie bites I’ve ever seen. Who knew a mummy could be cute? You nailed it!
