Halloween Pumpkin-Chocolate Cookies

I love Halloween. It is my favorite holiday. I love candy, I love costumes, I love the cool autumn air and I love how it's just the beginning of the rest of the holiday season. I am a sucker for celebrating things. I have been eyeing these cupcake liners that look like cobwebs forever...and nothing beats a recipe on my RSS feed that is low-fat and includes pumpkin candy corn.

Halloween Pumpkin-Chocolate Cookies

1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoon butter - melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
15-16 candy pumpkins


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking pan with parchment paper. Mix all the ingredients except the pumpkins in a bowl with your hands. Really well.

Form little balls (about 15-16) with the dough. Using your thumb, press a small indent in the middle of each ball and place on baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Immediately take out of oven and put candy pumpkins on top.
Easy. Adorable.
