      Vampire Bites
      Everyone will want to sink their teeth into these scary Halloween treats!
      Prep time: 20 min.
      Baking time: 7-10 min.
      Decoration time: 15 min.
      Difficulty: Easy
      What you’ll need:
      1 bag MILKY WAY® Brand Minis
      1 1/2 cups flour
      3/4 teaspoon baking soda
      1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
      1/2 cup butter, softened
      2/3 cup packed brown sugar
      1 egg
      Red food coloring
      1/2 cup red decorator’s sugar
      1 tube vanilla frosting
      Plastic wrap
      Electric mixer
      Large bowl
      Medium bowl
      2 cookie sheet pans
      lip-shaped cookie cutter

      What to do:
      Combine the flour, baking soda and cinnamon in a medium bowl; set aside.
      Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the egg; beat well. Slowly add the flour mixture into the dough until blended. Add enough food coloring to tint the dough a bright red. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line the cookie sheet pans with the parchment paper.
      Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Use the cookie cutter to cut out 24 lip shapes. Otherwise, you can form the dough into 24 balls and flatten each slightly to create free-form shaped lips using your hands to pinch and shape the dough. Transfer these to the prepared cookie sheets. Re-roll the scraps if necessary.
      Sprinkle the cookies with red sugar. Bake 7-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven, and immediately press an unwrapped MILKY WAY® Brand Minis piece into the center of each cookie. Cool completely. Use vanilla frosting to pipe fangs over the candy.
      Tip: If short on time, consider using store-bought refrigerated sugar cookie dough. Begin by kneading 2/3 cup of flour into the dough, then roll and cut according to the above directions. One roll of cookie dough makes approximately 18 cookies.
      Makes 24 bites.
