Twilight, the movie, comes out this week. If you’re a fan of the book series looking for a way to celebrate the release of the much-anticipated film, why not make some vampire-themed treats? Bloody Marys and other red drinks are obvious choices, but you’ll really impress your friends (or your child and his/her friends, which may be even more important) if you put together a batch of Vampire Cookies or Vampire Cupcakes! Both have delicious red, fruity fillings that “bleed” out when you bite into them.
For the afterparty – i.e. in the morning – make up a batch of Vampire Pancakes. They have a similar filling to the dessert treats and are perfect for breakfast.
If you want a more subtle approach, try a red velvet cake, cupcakes or a batch of red velvet whoopie pies to infuse some color into your celebrations.

I Love the Cookies!!! I’m going to try and re-create those!
I’m totally obsessed with Twilight… I can’t bring myself to be one of those screaming fans yet though. The books were amazing, and I’m hoping that the movie is just as good!

Hi 🙂 I was hoping to get some advice on how to make the Vampire Cookies so they turn out as well as yours! I tried the recipe a few days ago and the dough was very sticky. I had to add more flour in order to roll out the dough and I had to leave the dough fairly thick in order to cut out the shapes. The cookie was still good post baking (though not pretty), but it also tasted more dough-y as a result of the extra flour.. What do you think could have caused this? Is there something I should pay more attention to?
