Why I Love This Recipe

These are SO cute, easy and the kids love them. My 7 year old grandson and I made these last year and they were the hit of the school!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
24 wooden craft or Popsicle sticks
48 candy corn candies
24 red-hot candies


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.

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.
