Look Morty! I’m a cookie! It won’t be long now until Rick Sanchez is back at it with Morty and the Smith family for another season of interdimensional adventures. The upcoming season of Rick and Morty starts on November 10th and we couldn’t be more ready. After non-stop binging all three previous seasons, watching one episode at a time (the old fashioned way) is going to be a challenge for our emotions, but we can be strong. It’s been two loooong years since Mr. Poopybutthole warned us about the uncomfortable wait we would have to endure until the Smiths were back in our lives with fresh content. On the bright side, in that time we learned there will be at least 70 more episodes to look forward to in upcoming seasons. So, we will continue to watch at the snail’s pace of one episode per week, at least until the release of season four on streaming and DVD.
We’re thinking about a watch party- probably for the season premiere… finale… or maybe every episode. There will be Rick and Morty costumes and foods inspired by our heroes. See how you can turn Rick and Morty into cookies- like an experiment gone terribly right!! These delicious sugar cookies will go right through the portal of your mouth and into your belly.
Before you get started on Rick and Morty, you will need to make round sugar cookies and the royal icing. See our recipes and instructions for them here. Pre-mix royal icing colors in large batches before you begin piping. Over-estimate how much you will need so you won’t have to try to re-mix the exact color if you run out.

How To Make A Rick and Morty Portal Cookie
For the portal cookie, you’ll need to use the wet on wet technique. Use the dark green and light green royal icing. The consistency will need to be flood consistency so we can get the colors to combine easily together. Pipe the colors in a swirl.
Next, take your scribe and starting in the middle of the portal in the royal icing, drag your scribe out towards the edge of the cookie. Continue to do so until you get the desired look.
Let royal icing dry completely.
How to Make a Rick Sanchez Cookie
Find an image of Rick to use as a guide. Pipe on his face using a light grey color – Mix a small amount of black gel food coloring to the white icing for this color.
Using a darker grey color – mix a larger amount of black food coloring to the white icing for this color, pipe on the hair and eyebrow.
Next, use white medium consistency icing to pipe the eyes on. We didn’t leave a space for the eyes before since we want them to be bulging out a bit.
Now, add the mouth using the burgundy medium consistency icing.
Use the light yellow to add teeth in using medium consistency icing. Add the red tongue. Add the little light green hair under the mouth.
Now, using the image you found as a guide, add in the pupils and nose. You’ll want to use the coupler and round #00 piping tip. Don’t forget to outline everything else including his mouth, mustache, ears, eyes, eyebrows, face, and hair for the cartoon look!
How to Make a Morty Smith Cookie
Use any image that you can find of Morty and use it as a guide. First, we’ll use the light copper royal icing mix and make the shape of Morty’s face. Leave out space for the eyes since we will be filling those in.
Using the brown royal icing, add in Morty’s hair.
Using white medium consistency icing, fill in the eyes.
Next, use the image you found of Morty and use it as a guide to know where to outline the face. You’ll want to use the coupler and round #00 piping tip. Add the pupils, eyebrows, nose, and mouth. Make sure to outline the face and head so that it has a cartoon-effect.
There are infinite Ricks and Mortys out there, so you don’t have to feel bad about eating a few of them. There will be plenty of them left to continue entertaining us for years.
You could become the infamous pair, too. With a few simple items, Rick and Morty are both easy costumes to pull together. Check out our DIY Rick and Morty Costume post to get the look.
