What is a Snickerdoodle Bite?

These blondies started from our favorite snickerdoodle cookie bars recipe!

Soft, sweet bars that are the perfect canvas to dress up with all kinds of flavors.

Love pecans? There’s a pecan pie blondies recipe for that. Love cake batter? There’s a cake batter blondie for that. You get the idea.

Today’s cookie bar recipe is for all you Snickerdoodle lovers out there! Sprinkled cinnamon sugar topping over the blondies and, to make it Halloween ready, added some stripes of vanilla frosting and candy eyes on top!

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make halloween snickerdoodles.
  • Butter- we use unsalted butter in baking, to easily control the amount of salt. Use our guide on how to soften butter quickly!
  • Cream of Tartar- When paired with baking soda, the chemical reaction causes the dough to rise. Resulting in a chewy, cake-like texture!
  • Unsalted butter – I love using unsalted butter in my blondies to control the amount of salt in the recipe. If needed, feel free to use salted butter. Melt the butter before adding it to the cookie mix.
  • Candy eyes – I find candy eyeballs at Target, craft stores or online! They add such a fun touch to these blondies bites but, of course, the blondies will taste great without them too.

Step by Step Instructions

Cookie Batter.

  • Make the cookie dough as directed. Spread into a parchment paper lined 13×9 baking dish.


  • Combine more cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and then sprinkle it on top of the batter.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted into the blondies comes out clean (about 22 – 25 minutes). While the blondies are cooling, prepare the frosting.

Cut shapes.

  • To make these into mummy bites for Halloween, use a round cookie cutter to cut into bite sized circles. Ours is about 1 inch.

Make the frosting.

  • Then, use a frosting bag to pipe overlapping white stripes onto the blondie bites. Add two candy eyes to the top of each one to complete the look!

Recipe FAQs

Where can I buy candy eyes?

I found mine at Target. I’ve also had luck purchasing them at craft stores like Michael’s or Joanne Fabrics, or there’s always Amazon!

Can you freeze Snickerdoodle bites?

These snickerdoodle bites freeze wonderfully! I’d recommend freezing them before adding the frosting and candy eyes for best results. They’ll keep in the freezer for about 2 months.

Can I make these cookie bars ahead of time?

Make the cookie dough up to 48 hours before baking. Store in refrigerator.
