Witch’s Sweet Spell

Oh My Gourd! Halloween is this Thursday! Tricks 👍🏻 Treats👎🏻No worries, My Pretty! This Saturday a couple of witches (who may look like us 😉) are stirring up a little Hocus Pocus and creating a spooky, yet oh so tasty treat. Our Chocolate Witch Hats Cookies are guaranteed to sweeten up even the nastiest of ghosts and goblins! Happy Halloween Darling!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  •  cups sugar
    ½ cup brown sugar tightly packed

• 4 large egg whites

• 2 teaspoons vanilla

• 2½ cups unbleached flour

• 1 cup dark cocoa powder

• 1 Tablespoon baking powder

• ¾ teaspoon salt

• 2 cups powdered sugar for rolling

• 3 dozen milk chocolate kisses unwrapped

Directions

  • Combine the butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat together until ingredients are well-creamed.
  • Add egg whites, one at a time, stirring until completely combined, and then stir in vanilla.
  • Gradually add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt to your wet ingredients until completely combined.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • After chilling, preheat oven to 350F and prepare baking sheet by lining with parchment paper.
  • Roll dough into 1½ Tablespoon-sized balls and roll thoroughly in powdered sugar.
  • Transfer to baking sheet and bake on 350F for 10-12 minutes — take care to not over-bake.
  • Within 1-2 minutes of removing cookies from oven, gently press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie.
  • Allow cookies to finish cooling completely on baking sheet (that’s if you can wait!)
