I was a little slow on the Halloween front this year – I tried and failed to make some eyeball cake pops a couple of weeks back and I’ll be honest, the experience was such a nightmare that I all but gave up on making anything spooky or scary at all this year!

Thankfully, inspiration came back to me on the day and I whipped up a batch of these easy vegan Halloween cookies to give out to friends the same evening.

Making these Halloween cookies

I used a simple vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe as the base of these Halloween cookies, but you could really use whatever your favourite recipe is and then decorate!

The chocolate chip recipe uses coconut oil instead of butter, and a flax egg instead of eggs. The rest is simply flour, baking powder, sugar, plant-based milk, and vegan chocolate chips.

You can find the instructions to decorate the cookies as shown in the photos: with witch’s fingers, and with cute spiders!

  • 260g Plain flour
  • 0.5 tsp baking powder
  • 0.5 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 50g Coconut oil
  • 60g Coconut sugar
  • 60t Caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 4 tbsps water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 30g vegan chocolate chips

Witch's Fingers

  • Strawberry jam
  • Thick vegan biscuits (vegan shortbread)
  • Green icing
  • Red icing
  • Flaked almonds


  • 30g dark chocolate
  • 12 vegan malteasers/chocolate balls
  • 24 vegan white chocolate chips
  • Icing


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a baking tray with parchment paper
  2. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt)
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients (flax egg, vanilla, sugar, and oil)
  4. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry, and then fold in the chocolate chips. If the mix is too dry, you can add a little plant-based milk to help form the dough.
  5. Use an ice cream scoop to spoon balls of the cookie dough onto your baking tray, and bake for 10 minutes until the cookies are golden.
  6. Allow to cool before decorating

To make the witch's fingers

  1. Scoop a small section out of the middle of the cookie, and add a spoonful of jam
  2. Carve your shortbread biscuit into a rough finger shape, slightly pointed at the end
  3. Ice the biscuit with green icing, using red icing for the end of the finger and nail bed
  4. Place a flaked almond on the tip of the finger, then place the witch's finger in the jam

To make the spider topping

  1. Melt the dark chocolate. Use a spoon or a syringe to line 8 legs and a small circle of chocolate in the centre of the cookie
  2. Press the chocolate balls into the melted chocolate in the centre of the cookie, one behind the other.
  3. Use a dab of melted chocolate to stick your white chocolate chips to one of the balls for eyes, and add a dab of black icing for the eye balls
