Make Deadpool in cookie form for all your favorite Marvel fans

Marvel’s next movie, Deadpool, part of the X-Men series, makes its debut this month, and it turns out that Deadpool can easily be turned into a fun food craft. Use store-bought sandwich cookies as the base for these really simple no-bake treats.

Deadpool is not your typical superhero — in fact, he may be the anti-superhero — but he’s not a typical villain either. Deadpool is Wade Wilson, a Special Forces operative turned mercenary. After finding out he has cancer, he submits himself to experiments that give him self-healing powers and a “twisted sense of humor” — cue the shenanigans.

I thought some Deadpool cookies would be perfect to kick off his new movie. These treats are just decorated chocolate sandwich cookies and really simple to put together. No baking needed!

Candy-coated sunflower seeds and some red candy wafers are all you need to decorate them, so make a bunch for your favorite Marvel fans.

Deadpool-decorated sandwich cookies recipe

Any chocolate cookie base will work for this treat, so use your favorite chocolate cookies in place of sandwich cookies. If you can’t find candy-coated sunflower seeds, you can replace them with any small white candies or sprinkles.

Yields 24 

Total time: 30 minutes


  • 1 package round chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 48 white candy-coated sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup red candy melts (wafers)


  1. Arrange the cookies into 2 rows of 12 cookies.
  2. To a quart-size plastic freezer bag, add the candy melts. Microwave in 10- to 15-second intervals until the candy is just melted. Snip a small corner off the bag, and “pipe” the red candy onto 1 side of the cookies. Follow around the cookie edges and then 1 line down the middle. Let harden for 10 minutes.
  3. Add a small amount of melted candy to the back of each sunflower seed. Place 2 on each cookie as eyes (follow the pictures as a guide). Let harden for 5 minutes.
