Ready for some chocolaty fun for the holidays?  I have a cookie that you will enjoy eating… just forget that it’s starring back at you.  Chocolate gummy eyeball cookies are a tasty treat.  And easy to make when you need something sweet.  It combines a great recipe for chocolate cookies with a gummy eyeball.  Tis the season for all sorts of Halloween gummy products.  So just check with your local grocer.  Chocolate gummy eyeball cookies are a fudgy treat for the holiday indulgence.  So go ahead and indulge… whip up a batch of chocolate gummy eyeball cookies today.

Enjoy!

Here is how I did it!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Grab a medium bowl and combine your dry ingredients flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, and kosher salt.  Set aside.

Grab your stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and add your softened unsalted butter and sugar.  Mix at low speed for 4 minutes to cream the mixture.  Halfway through increase the speed to medium to get the mixture creamy.  Add your egg and vanilla, and combine.  Lower the speed to stir and begin slowly adding the dry ingredients to incorporate them into your mixture.  Expect this mixture to be thick.

Grab a half sheet pan lined with parchment paper.  Use a teaspoon to scoop out some dough and place 12 drops onto each cookie sheet.  Place the dough drops about 1-1/2″ apart.  This will give your chocolate gummy eyeball cookies room to spread out as they bake.  Don’t try to smooth out the dough drops too much your cookie texture will be smooth.  It’s the rough texture that helps them look great.  Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake for 11 – 13 minutes or until the bottom of your cookies begin to brown.  Remove your cookies from the oven and place one gummy eyeball in the center of each one.

Let your chocolate gummy eyeball cookies cool for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cookie rack to cool completely.
