Halloween Spattered Chocolate Cookies from Flying Broomsticks Above, what is that?
Look up in that October sky, do you see the witch or witches flying about?
Witches are all out on their magical flying broomsticks.
Are witches naughty or nice, which is the age-old question, right?
Nice (for this tale) since their flying broomsticks drop out sweet chocolate cookie treats.
While they won’t drop from the sky, they will create in your cauldron and drop from your spoon.
In the spirit of October, Halloween spattered chocolate cookies from flying broomsticks above (spoon to the pan) magically appear from your cauldron.
Halloween spattered chocolate cookies from flying broomsticks above are perfect for the witches and warlocks in your home.
Now, in the spirit of naming food that tastes and looks so good, with an incredibly unattractive name, is how I’ve decided on my recipe title.
You could say I landed on it once I got off my broomstick, lol!
For those not fortunate enough to see a witch flying overhead on her broomstick, just create her magic recipe spell quickly in your oven.
Halloween Spattered Chocolate Cookies
In short, every fun recipe should have a great name.
While this is all a great Halloween tale and flying witches really don’t exist, many movies and stories do.
Those boiling over cauldrons, or witches eating kids (Hanzel and Gretel) all lend to a fun story behind a cookie.
What drops from a witches broomstick when she’s flying?
Therefore get ready for fun, colorful and so yummy.
Even Baking Matters
No matter the cookie I bake or the recipe I create, I use bakeware that I have come to rely on.
All in all, even heating throughout a cookie tray matters.
I don’t want a tray of cookies with some cooked better than others or some burned.
No thank you.
Ingredients cost money and when I bake I don’t have time for flopped batches of cookies, do you?
My choice of bakeware is 360 Cookware, Stainless Steel Cookie Sheets, 100% crafted in the good old USA!
Even heating, perfectly baked batches of cookies, one after the other, is what you can expect.
A lifetime warranty, and large baking trays perfect for huge batches or many small cookies.
Use a silicone mat to guide your scoop placement and you never have to worry about where 2″ apart might be.
The Color – Hop on your broomstick to get it!
That said, let’s start with color.
Of course, orange is the color that shows up great against the chocolate cookie.
However, you could go with a brilliant purple as well, all personal choice.
So, you’ll want to either grab meltable orange chips or you’ll need other supplies to make your chocolate orange.

Inside my Ganache recipe, I go in-depth discussing coloring chocolate, so I won’t repeat that here.
Meltable Chocolate on Halloween Spattered Chocolate Cookies
Orange meltable chocolate pieces are in-stores now but maybe gone as they disappear faster than a leprechaun and his pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
Try grabbing my favorite brand of meltable chocolate for every season online.
While these are vanilla-flavored you can change them to chocolate flavor by adding the proper flavoring for chocolate meltable.
Since you may not be able to find the right color for meltable chocolate, just buy the candy oil coloring, not other food colors, they will destroy your melted chocolate. (been there, don’t this )
Additionally, the other one I use a lot are these melting chips, and I color them because they are readily available online and in the stores (craft, warehouse, etc).
Last, the chips in my cookie are not CHIPS, they are M&M Ghouls Mix and it’s getting harder and harder to find.
A Word of Witch Wisdom on Halloween Spattered Chocolate Cookies Using a Silpat or parchment paper is highly suggested.
Cleanup afterward will be much easier.
When you are topping these fun cookies off with chocolate spatter again use parchment or silicone baking mats.
If you are using a silicone mat, remember to use it on a tray!
- 1 C Light Brown Sugar
- A stick of unsalted butter softened
- 2 Eggs (do not use brown eggs)
- 1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
- DRY MIXTURE
- 1/4 Tsp Salt
- 1 1/4 C Flour
- 3/4 - 1 C Unsweetened Dutch Cocoa Powder
- 1 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
- A Bag of M&M Ghouls Mix
- ORANGE CHOCOLATE SPATTER
- 4 oz White Chocolate (meltable)
- Orange Candy Oil-Based Coloring *as covered in my post.
Preheat your oven to 350° F.
Prepare your trays with silicone baking mats
In a large mixing bowl (or your stand mixer bowl), add in the softened butter.
Next, add in the eggs.
Now the brown sugar.
Mix this together.
Let's move to the dry ingredients and add those in (you can thank me for not making you use a separate bowl to mix them in, it serves no purpose than to make an additional bowl to clean up!)
Cocoa Powder (I add the heavier hand as listed on this to make it really yummy, but if you just want the taste and color of chocolate stay on the 3/4 C side.
Add in the flour.
Mix to combine.
Once you've got all the dry ingredients mixed in (scrape the side of the bowl and the bottom to make sure) it's time to HAND FOLD in the Ghouls Mix.
Mix in the contents of the Ghoul's Mix, very well. We don't want any cookies having more chocolate than the other, lol.
Using a cookie scoop (1.5"), place cookies 2" apart on your prepared baking pan.
Leave them in a ball scoop, do NOT FLATTEN.
The cookie will bake for 10-12 Minutes Do NOTE The cookies will CRACK on their own while baking.
Don't over bake.
Naturally, the first batch is going to be the longer bake of 12 minutes.
By the second round, you will be at about 10 minutes firm.
When you remove the cookie from the oven (with hot mitts on), firmly smack the pan against the countertop (I do this on a layered towel) and the cookies will crinkle more!
Allow these to cool, then transfer to a cooling rack (about 10 minutes).
Repeat the entire process above until all of our cookies are baked (approximately 24 cookies)
Once cooled, it's time to Spatter the Chocolate Cookies from Flying Broomsticks above.
Transfer all of the cookies to a silicone baking mat or a large cut of parchment paper.
Melt your white chocolate in a microwave-safe glass for 30 seconds, and then 20-second bursts (if more time is needed).
Mix the white chocolate until smooth.
Add your coloring drop by drop until you achieve a brilliant Halloween orange color.
Immediately use your fork and spatter each cookie.
The forks' tines will grasp the chocolate, and then above each cookie just dangle the fork back and forth and the spatter will transfer to the cookie below.
I've even coated some of the cookies by dipping them 1/2 way into the orange mixture.
This is all personal preference.
Allow the 'spatter' to dry (about 15 minutes) and then they are ready to feast on!
