HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!

And here’s a treat that your little ones will love to help you create!  (I know. I know.  As if they won’t be getting enough treats, right?  But, you can bring these in to the Teachers or to church or to the Library, or the neighbors…)

Let the sweet adventure begin!

You will need to purchase 16 oz of refrigerated sugar cookie dough.  Leave it out at room temperature for about 15 minutes, before you are about to begin baking.

Grease 18 muffin cups.  (You’ll just put a little water in the empty 6 cups, right before you put them in the oven so that the cooking remains even.)

Add 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder to the softened sugar cookie dough into the bowl of a stand mixer.  Whisk together until cocoa powder is well incorporated.

Turn mix out onto the counter with a spatula.  Divide mixture into 18 portions.  (Cut in half, quarters, eighths, 16ths and then wing it!)

Let those cute, pudgy little hands get to work rolling those portions into “meatballs”.

Put the “meatballs” into the greased muffin cups.

Press onto bottoms and up the sides of the muffin cups.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 12-14 minutes.

Cool in the pans for 10 minutes.  Remove to wire racks.  Gently press down the middle of each cookie with the back of a spoon.  Let cool completely.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to complete your mud cups:  About 10-15 Oreo cookies, run through the food processor, 3 containers (4 oz each) yummy chocolate pudding, gummy worms, and your cookie cups.

And now for the assembly…the kids love this part!
