Author Marty's Musings


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup Dixie Crystals Granulated Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Whisk flour, cocoa, baking and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add egg, milk and vanilla. Slowly add dry ingredients.
  • Drop batter by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. The cookies will be set, but still soft. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • After cookies have cooled, spread buttercream icing on one cokie and top with another cookie to make a "sandwich."
  • Spoon frosting into a pastry bag (or plastic baggie) and use a star tip for the whites of the eyes.
  • Add two mini chocolate chips.


These cookies are very rich and would be fine made smaller.
If you roll the dough in your palms and then flatten it will make a more uniform cookie.
