  1. Begin by preparing all your ingredients, and don’t be afraid to adjust quantities to your liking.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients for the cookie dough. You can add more flour if the mixture is too sticky or more almonds for extra crunch. Set Aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Adjust the amount of sugar for sweetness to taste.
  4. Add eggs and almond extract, combine
  5. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together to form a cookie dough that’s easy to work with.
  6. Fold in the chopped almonds for a delightful nutty flavor and texture.
  7. Shape your cookie dough into rounds. Remember, these are monsters, so they can be as irregularly shaped as you like!
  8. Bake your monster cookies until they are golden brown and allow them to cool completely.
  9. For the filling, combine butter, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, milk, vanilla (and a splash of almond if you’d like) and a pinch of salt. Adjust the cocoa and sugar quantities to suit your taste.
  10. Once your cookies are cooled, spread a generous amount of filling on one cookie and place another on top, slightly askew to create a “monster mouth.” (you’ll notice the bottom cookie is still in its original baked position, this helps give a cute base to the cookie.)
  11. Get creative with decorating your monsters! Use marshmallows to make eyes and teeth. You can also add food coloring to the filling for different monster colors. Grab sprinkles or other candy if you want to!
