Caroling Gremlin Cookies

Have you ever been enjoying a cozy Christmas at home, snow falling lightly outside, with a nice roaring fire when the doorbell rings?

Carolers, you think, what fun! I’m game for a mediocre, yet well-intended, serenade.

Except, when you open the door, you see this…

Yeah, I hate it when that happens.

The only way that caroling gremlins would be better is if they were edible.

So, I made them edible.

Well, I guess they were edible before, but who wants to eat a gremlin? Gross.

Caroling gremlin cookies? Not gross. Funny, kind of weird, and absolutely delicious.

Edible caroling gremlin cookies? I’ll take a dozen please :)

They might eat their way through the box ;)

I’d forgotten that scene from Gremlins. Absolutely LOVE your twisted sense of humor! Hilarious!

Great detail on the cookies by the way. What tiny sharp pointy teeth they have!

Thanks so much, Debbie! The teeny-tiny teeth were my first experience with my new “0″ tip! Luckily, it worked out alright :)

Haha, definitely not your momma’s cookies:) Creepy-crazy, but so well made! I hope we don’t look like that when we go Christmas caroling with the munchkins (not gremlins)!

Thanks, Sue! I can’t help but love the weird cookies :) And, as long as you guys aren’t green or murderous, I think you’ll be fine ;)

Thank you! :)

Haha!! Too funny! I love these guys- especially love the tiny teeth detail! I experienced doorbell carolers only once, and unfortunately they kinda sounded like that video clip. (From what I remember from the Gremlin movies, mogwais were the better singers.)


14 Jennifer December 20, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Thanks, Mike! The more I look at them, the more I love them :) I was so nervous about the teeth and using my one and only “0″ tip, but it really was painless. Sorry about the not-so-great carolers, but at least they didn’t bite ;) A group of caroling mogwais would be a totally different story!

You are hilarious and these cookies are fabulous! Love your attention to detail, the earmuffs, hats, scarves and those teeny tiny teeth! Awesome.

Thank you, Paula! These might be one of my favorite cookies ever – they are just so weird…and I love how they came out :)


17 Tiffany December 21, 2012 at 11:14 am

18 Tiffany December 21, 2012 at 11:15 am

Geez I meant Stripe! LOL


19 Jennifer December 21, 2012 at 11:57 am

Haha – I always got mixed up and called him Spike too :)

These just crack me up. I love them! This brings back memories. I just love Gizmo!


21 Jennifer December 23, 2012 at 8:45 am

I love Gizmo too! I even love the Gremlins 2 movie, which wasn’t all that good :)

It’s official. You are the master of creepy cookies. You know, in a good way. (;
