Bloody Band-Aid Halloween Bandages Cookies

Halloween is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to start planning your spooky party menu! If you’re looking for a creepy-yet-cute treat, these bloody bandage cookies are perfect.

A couple years ago, I saw these amazing Bloody Band-Aid cookies at a Halloween party. I was intrigued and had to try to make them myself.

This recipe is super simple. All you need are some store-bought cookies, and red and white icing to make them look like blood clotting bandages. Just add fondant or ice the cookies with the icing, and then serve them up on your Halloween spread.

Best Alternative Ingredients for this Treat

The best cookies for this treat are the Sugar Wafer cookies by Keebler. The tan ones make the perfect looking band-aid!

  • Sugar Wafer cookies by Keebler, Graham Crackers, Vienna Fingers for the bandaid
  • Fondant, white frosting or icing for the bandaid cloth
  • Red or brown food color gel for the wound
  • Sprinkles (to look like hair)

Let me show how to create these creepy treats!

Notes

If you can’t find fondant, you can find a recipe for it online, or use white frosting. It won’t look as neat, but it will do the trick.
Be careful not use a lot of water on the fondant, or it may get too sticky.
