What’s better than delicious soft sugar cookies? Soft, delicious chocolate sugar cookies topped with icing and sprinkles! You definitely won’t be able to eat just one of these, so grab a glass of milk and take two.
These easy to make Halloween Chocolate Sugar Cookies are chewy and soft with delicious flavor, cookie icing and festive sprinkles!
I keep saying that Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday and that I don’t usually spend much time making Halloween desserts…and yet this year I just keep making Halloween desserts because Halloween Treats week has me do darn excited!
These Halloween cookies are the third Halloween themed dessert I’ve made this year and I actually even have a few more planned. For someone who claims not to enjoy Halloween, that’s a lot of Halloween desserts!
These Halloween Chocolate Sugar Cookies are just SO good, though. And so easy! I was able to make an entire batch during nap time, which is my new measure of how quick and easy a recipe truly is.
Like the majority of my Halloween desserts, these chocolate sugar cookies are Halloween-themed based primarily on the colors. No creepy witch fingernail cookies here!
Instead, I took my favorite soft sugar cookie recipe, made a few adjustments to turn it into an absolutely incredible CHOCOLATE sugar cookies recipe, and went crazy showing my Halloween spirit with colorful sprinkles thanks to Sweets & Treats.
I know black and orange are the most traditional Halloween colors but I’m really starting to love purple and green as Halloween colors too, at least it adds some variety.
If you love soft sugar cookies, you’ll love these Halloween cookies. Chocolate sugar cookies may just be my new favorite type of cookie, as they’re basically the best of both worlds.
Sweet, chewy, and chocolatey. Add some cookie icing and sprinkles….these Halloween Chocolate Sugar Cookies were made for dunking!
If you serve these at a Halloween party, I can promise they’ll be the first dessert to go!
