Do you love a soft sugar cookie as much as I do? Then you’re sure to enjoy these Halloween Sugar Cookie Bars with creamy orange frosting and festive sprinkles! They’re perfect for fall parties and gatherings!
I’ll admit that I’m a total sugar cookie snob. If the cookie is hard and crusty, I’d rather not waste the calories on it. But, on the other hand, if it’s soft and flavorful with a good amount of frosting, I can’t keep myself from eating about a dozen!
Well, be prepared to say goodbye to all self control with these Halloween Sugar Cookie Bars. They are absolute perfection! I opted to use almond extract in them for a boost in flavor and something that will leave everyone saying, “Wow!”.
And then I iced them generously with my all-time favorite vanilla buttercream frosting. It works out perfectly every time and I always get requests for the recipe. The secret is to whip it for at least five minutes, until it gets amazingly creamy, smooth, and fluffy!
Who doesn’t love sprinkles? They make everything more fun! What’s not to love about these dessert bars?!
Kids and adults will be reaching for seconds and thirds! Another tip is to never over bake a sugar cookie. This is what makes them dry and flavorless. I baked these bars for about 20 minutes, but I always check every few minutes to make sure I’m not over-doing them. In my opinion, I might as well toss out the batch if they are crumbly and dry!
We’re gearing up for Halloween around here. We just put up our decorations and the kids are deciding which costumes they’d like to wear. It’s our favorite time of the year!
If you’re hosting a Halloween party or need the perfect treat to take to the kids’ classroom celebration, look no further than these incredible sugar cookie bars!
I love that you can customize them by switching up the frosting color and sprinkles for any holiday.
I included one in my kids’ lunch boxes the other day for a fun surprise and they thought I was basically the “Best mom ever!”. 🙂 If you want everyone to instantly love you, show up to the bash bearing these Halloween Sugar Cookie Bars. 🙂
