Easy Halloween Cookie | Chocolate Cyclops Cookies
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 30 Cookies
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup confectioners powdered sugar
  • 2 1 ounce packages bloody candy eye decals
  1. Preheat the oven to 325° and have ready a cookie sheet lined with either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.  
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and sea salt. Set aside until ready to use. 

  3. Add the sugar and eggs to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, and mix on medium-high speed for 3-4 minutes, until pale yellow and noticeably thicker. If you do not have a stand mixer, use a large bowl and a handheld mixer. Reduce the speed of the mixer to low and add in the vanilla, followed by streaming in the melted and cooled butter.

  4. With the mixer still on low, gradually add in the dry ingredients. Add the white chocolate chips and mix once more.  Have ready a small bowl of confectioners sugar. Scoop out 2 tablespoons worth of dough and roll into a ball. 
  5. Roll the dough ball in the powdered sugar and transfer to the baking sheet, placing each dough ball about 2" apart. Place a candy eye decal in the center of each dough ball and press gently to adhere. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Serve and enjoy! 

  6. Makes about 30 cookies
