Dark Chocolate Halloween Cookies nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, cream together the melted vegan butter and sugar. Add the melted dark chocolate and mix well.
  2. In a separate bowl, add the flour, cacao powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix together well.
  3. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.
  4. Line cookie baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the dough onto the cookie sheets. Don’t press them down, just leave them like that.
  6. Gently press “M&M’s” onto the cookies before baking so that bright candy shows!
  7. Bake in a 350° (F) oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies are done/firm around the edges when pressed. They will still be soft in the middle and just a little puffed up.
  8. Remove from oven and cool cookies in the pans for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
