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!
- 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
- 1½ 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
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!)
