Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter softened
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate sprinkles
  • 48 candy eyes
  • 1 1/2 cups of dark chocolate candy melts or chopped almond bark
  • 2/3 cup white candy melts or chopped almond bark
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and salt into a small bowl. Cream butter and sugar with a mixer until pale and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the yolks, milk, and vanilla; beat for 1-2 minutes or until thoroughly incorporated. Scrape sides of bowl. Beat in flour mixture until just combined.
  • Pour the sprinkles onto a plate. Take one tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball, then roll the ball in the sprinkles until thoroughly coated. Repeat with remaining dough. Place the balls of dough 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Using the bottom of a drinking glass coated in cooking spray, gently press down on each cookie to flatten it. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until cookies are set. Let cool slightly on baking sheets. Transfer cookies to wire racks and let cool completely.
  • Place the dark chocolate melts or almond bark in a bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval until melted. Pour the melted chocolate into a piping bag fitted with a small round tip. Alternatively you can use a resealable freezer bag with a corner snipped off.
  • Pipe a dot of chocolate onto the back of each candy eye and place the eyes onto the cookies. Pipe on the eyebrows, nose and mouth. Let the chocolate dry completely.
  • Place the white chocolate melts or almond bark in a bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval until melted. Pour the melted chocolate into a piping bag fitted with a small round tip. Alternatively you can use a resealable freezer bag with a corner snipped off.
  • Pipe the teeth on top of the chocolate mouth. Let dry completely.
  • The cookies can be served immediately or stored at room temperature for up to 2 days.
