It is Halloween, and I can’t wait to surprise my daughter with these cute and little spooky cookies! They are incredibly easy to make, so there is no excuse to put a bit of edible Halloween art on your table this coming Tuesday! Everyone will love them!
These cookies have the right amount of sweetness with a gentle, crunchy texture and a creamy chocolate filling. I love using mascarpone as the base for a cake or cookie filling. It is not only versatile to combine with multiple ingredients, but it is also a fast way to add a creamy and soft touch to any treat.
We store the decorated cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. You can also bake the cookies first and make the chocolate mascarpone filling on the day you want to present them—like your haunted house party. Undecorated cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to one week. But they are of course best when freshly made. The recipe is incredibly simple, and the cookies are ready in 15 minutes, so there is a great benefit to offer these cute little monsters fresh on Halloween!
If you want to gift them to your neighbor or bring them as a party guest, they stand out when presented in a small black box (buy at a crafts store). They compliment your hot cocoa, coffee or even your homemade eggnog when waiting for the trick and treaters on your porch this Halloween!
