Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Scooby Snacks

I can't believe that it's already back to school time! I wanted to have a few days of fun before school started. One day we went to the zoo, another spent playing at the park, and yesterday we made Scooby Snack cookies and had a mini marathon of Scooby Doo. (We're big Scooby fans.) After looking for ingredients in the pantry and playing with the ingredients a little bit, we finally came up with our own recipe. The kids have already requested that we make them again!

You will need:
  • 1/2 teapsoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • Misc.: cookie sheets, non-stick spray, toothpick

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Mix all ingredients together.
3. Spray a cooking sheet with non-stick spray.
4. Scoop out 1 tablespoon sized balls and form into shapes. If you want a certain shape, it might be easier to use cookie cutters. Use a toothpick and write SD (for Scooby Doo) on the top of the cookies.
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are slightly firm. DM Tip: If the edges turn brown, they are burning. I found the middle shelf worked best.

OTHER IDEAS:  My kids and I liked the cookies...I mean Scooby Snacks. However, there are a lot of variations online. Here are a few other recipes I found.

  • This recipe came from a Scooby Doo Guide to Life book. Ingredients: ¼ cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla, ½ cup flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt, ¾ cup grated coconut. Melt butter in a saucepan, stir in sugar until dissolved. Once it cools add vanilla and egg. Sir the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Stir flour mixture into the butter mixture. Add coconut. Drop ½ inch sized cookies onto a cookie sheet. Use your fingers and press into diamond shapes. With a toothpick, press the letters SD into each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Here a few other recipe variations I found online:


  1. My kids love Scooby Doo: Mask of the Blue Falcon, but I love the older TV show versions.

  2. Bless you for this post. I had the Scooby-Doo Guide to Life as a kid but couldn't remember the title and thought I'd never find the recipe in there again.


I love to hear from you! I promise I read every comment, but I don't always remember to respond to each one.
