Okay, who else was a HUGE R.L. Stine fan growing up? I read everything he wrote at the time, along with everything by Christopher Pike and LJ Smith. I was big into horror stories, even though they kept me up all night. I loved all the books and all those TV movies they made back in the 90s. So when I saw they were making a Goosebumps movie?! I was ALL over that.

Obviously all I know is based on the trailer, which shows an overprotective dad (RL Stine) trying to scare away his daughter’s would-be new boyfriend. But horrors are unleashed when the boy opens one of Stine’s manuscripts and releases the monsters inside. The movie looks like great fun for the tween/teen audience, but I’m sure there’ll be a healthy dose of nostalgia for us grown ups, too!

And since I was feeling all sentimental, I decided to whip up some Goosebumps themed cookies!

So the instructions for these are the same as on my “PAN” Cookies. The only change is in the royal icing decorations (though it’s the same concept). Here’s what I did.

“Goosebumps” Logo

Locate a picture of  the Goosebumps logo on Google.   Print it out several times on one sheet of paper.

Tape wax paper (covering the copies of  the logo) to the cookie sheet. Follow the color and features as printed on the paper.

Ice the whole cookie in white royal icing, as per the PAN cookies. Then, using a small pastry bag fill with the green royal icing and a #2 tip.  Start with the G first so you can get that all done..   Allow this to dry for 30 seconds. Then fill in the “splat” with purple royal icing.

Allow to dry for 5-10 hours. Ensure that the logo is  dry, gently touch one of them with your finger. If it allows you to push in on the icing allow it to dry more.  If  the silhouette is dry then it will have a hard feeling not allowing you to push in on it.

Cut the wax paper holding the completed logo  into squares surrounding the completed design. Once  dry, carefully peel the wax paper off of the back of the images and place on the frosted cookie.

I am a huge horror fan myself. I collect vintage horror novels and of course, Halloween and Fall is my favorite holiday/season! These are really great looking. I can’t wait to find out how they taste!

Those are really cool cookies! I’m all too familiar with Goosebumps because my girls grew up reading them! Cool stories for kids, really creepy too.
