I know, I know, Its been a very long time since I have made an appearance here on my little ol’ blog. But I gotta tell you I miss it. I really do. With that and now working from home I am going to try and get back in the game!! You heard it I am back baby!! LOL What better way to start it off with these amazing Chocolate Dipped Halloween Cookies.
With the state of things these days were all staying home. I hardly go anywhere anymore and I do miss going to work. To make up for that I tend to do a lot of nothing!! One thing I do know is I am cooking and baking more than every! One of my favorite things is to bake cookies and I love working with candy melts. What better thing to do than to combine the two?? If you know me at all you know I have to take things just a little over the top, so lets sprinkle these cookies with some creepy but fun sprinkles!
Here is a list of just a few things you will need for these cute cookies:
Here are a few of my tips when making these cookies. Make sure the cookies are completely cool before dipping in the candy melts. After dipping the cookie in the chocolate gently shake the cookie to let the extra candy drip off. Once the cookie is placed on the parchment paper try not to move it. Let the candy melts set up just a bit before adding the sprinkles
This recipe is one of my favorite recipes is easy and most ingredients are usually in your pantry or in your refrigerator. If you don’t like to use butter I have used butter flavored vegetable shortening, it works just as well.
Chocolate Dipped Halloween Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 box Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tbs water
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 12 oz Wilton Light Cocoa Candy Melts
- Halloween sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Cover baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. Combine cake mix, melted butter, egg, water and vanilla in large bowl with wooden spoon until blended. Add in chocolate chips and mix. Batter will be thick. Using 2 tbs cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough onto parchment covered baking sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool cookies 1 minute on pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
- Melt the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments making sure to stir the candy in between each time in the microwave. When candy is melted and cookies are cool dip each cookie about halfway in the melted candy melts, gently shake off excess candy and place on parchment paper. Sprinkle with Halloween sprinkles. Allow candy to harden then eat and enjoy.
If you make these cookies let me know how they turned out! And as always stay safe. Happy baking!
