Just divide the prepared mix, add different colors of food coloring to each batch, and bake away. Gel colors will offer brighter colors than liquid food coloring.
These bat sugar cookies are definitely spooky! They're super easy to make even if you've never made homemade sugar cookies and royal icing. They'll be a big hit at your party... put them on the dessert table or hand them out as favors at the end!
