Mmmm…. mums! You’ll fall in love with these colorful, bite-sized mum cookies. Not just because they’re beautiful, but because they’re no-bake and super easy to make. The hardest part is stopping yourself from snacking on the sunflower seeds as you assemble them.

Is it just me, or are there like a BILLION Halloween recipes out right now? Don’t get me wrong, I love Halloween too. But how many times between now and October 31 are you going to be able to serve spider cookies and Frankenstein cupcakes? Yeah, I thought so.

In fact, my daughter’s school now has a Fall Celebration instead of a Halloween party. So I’m thinking these fall mum cookies will make some little mouths very happy. And while I’m at it, I’ll probably take a plate of them to work. Now that I think about it, a bright bouquet of them on the table at Thanksgiving would be pretty sweet too.

What You Need

  • White frosting (homemade or store-bought)
  • Food coloring (colors that match your chocolate-covered sunflowers)
  • Regular and mini-sized Nilla Wafer cookies
  • M&M candies (assorted fall colors)
  • Chocolate-covered sunflower seeds (assorted fall colors)

I found my chocolate-covered sunflower seeds at a local bulk candy store, but I’ve also seen them at Whole Foods and online.

Step 3
Decorate with M&M candies and chocolate-covered sunflower seeds. Start by placing an M&M in the middle and fan the seeds outward to look like the petals of a cushion mum. The smaller cookies do not need an M&M in the center.
