Monsters University cookies

Give it to me, did you love Monsters University as much as I did? I seriously love kid movies and Pixar hits a home run each time with their flicks. My hubby and I  are always excited to take the kids out for a family date (with popcorn and drinks, of course!) to see the newest ones and MU didn’t disappoint! 

Easy monster cookies! So cute & playful for Halloween!

We had planned a family date last weekend to see so so I experimented ahead of time and made an easy Mike Wasowski monster cookie recipe:

Are you a fan of Monsters Inc? Here's an easy way to make Mike into a cookie! Perfect Halloween cookie too!


Mike is so cute as a little guy and it was fun to see his enthusiasm as a kiddo in this movie.  I love how cute these monster cookies are and since it’s a simple recipe, I’m going to let the pictures do the talking:

Did the monsters explain it well enough? (;

Soooo, I used a cookie mix ’cause I’m a cheater like that. Oh, and purchased store-bought frosting since it was a just a buck and I didn’t want to spend additional time messing up even more bowls.  The eyeballs are in the wedding aisle at Michael’s with all of the Wilton products. While the cookies are baking, just mix up bright frosting colors for additional monsters, spread it on your cooled cookies, add a giant eyeball.

Now say hello to some new edible friends:

  26. I think what I like best about Pixar movies is their layers of storytelling. For example MU was deemed ok by my 13 & 15 yr. old boys. However, my husband,17 old son and I loved it.
    My 17 old is looking at college and where he will fit in once he gets on his path. We loved the plot about Sully, (his selfishness, indulgence & using monsters to get what he wants – not really a team player) his character, not really a stand up monster or friend, but later striving for that, being remorseful and asking for forgiveness. Character qualities parents want in their children and themselves!
    Thumbs up Awesome Movie!!

  27. I believed in myself when I graduated from college working full time and taking care of my baby at the same time. Being optimistic and working hard really helped me to achieve my dream

  28. After my parents divorced when I was 6, I had to leave the US to live in South America with my mother. During the 2 years I lived there, I completely forgot how to speak English. I returned to the US and had to go back to school, absolutely terrified because I didn’t understand a word that anyone was saying to me. But I worked hard to regain my language skills and believed I would catch up. Two years later I won the award for top English student in my grade. This was my dream come true. The boy who won the Math and Science awards that year went on to Harvard years later, so those awards were very prestigious. No matter how unattainable a goal seems, you can’t ever give up.

  29. LOVED this movie. And those cookies! Def going to be copying you. My kiddos would love this!

  30. I worked full time while I went to college to realize my dream of becoming a teacher. -I’m now in my 7th year!

  31. What a great story–and great cookies too 🙂 I’d say my dream is that I’d love to finish college some day. But I wouldn’t trade a single thing that “kept” me from getting my degree…so even if it never happens, I’m living the dream-life now by the husband and kids that I have.
