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!
