  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Roll dough into 1-1/2-in. balls. Place 3 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets.
  2. Insert a wooden stick into each cookie. Flatten with a glass dipped in sugar. Pinch top of cookie to form ears. For whiskers, press a fork twice into each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set. Remove from the oven; immediately press on candy corn for eyes and red-hots for noses. Remove to wire racks to cool.

These cookies turn out absolutely adorable. I made them for a first grade class party and they were a hit. I did not use butter. I used margarine and just refrigerated the dough an hour or two b...

I thought this recipe was fantastic! I'm a huge fan of anything chocolate, plus I loved making the cookie into a work of art! The only thing I did differently was instead of using candy corn and...

With regard to flavor, these are perfect for small children or adults who don't like a real cocoa hit in their cookies. Doubled recipe with no problem. Dough texture was similar to play-dough....

These are easy and absolutely adorable. Other reviewers are correct that the cookies are not a “five”, but they are still quite good. Definitely better than the traditional Halloween cookies w...

The cookie itself is good, but don't smash it down too much. I like this cookie a little thick, so smash it til it's about 1/4 inch thick. If you smash it thinner then you get a crunchy cookie...
