Warty witches’ hats Halloween cookies recipe
  • Warty Witches' Hats cookie recipe1/2 cup Land O Lakes Butter
  • 1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) real semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 Land O Lakes All-Natural Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped dry roasted peanuts
  • 48 caramel-filled candy kisses

Combine butter and chocolate chips in 2-quart saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, 6-8 minutes or until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; set aside. Cool 30 minutes.

Add sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt to chocolate mixture; stir until well mixed. Add flour; stir until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 4 hours or overnight until firm.

Heat oven to 325 F.

Place chopped peanuts into bowl. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. (Dust hands with powdered sugar, if necessary.) Roll balls in peanuts, pressing gently so they stick to dough. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 11-13 minutes or until slightly firm to the touch.

Immediately top each cookie with candy kiss; cool 1 minute. Remove to cooling racks. Gently push on tip of each candy kiss to create crooked appearance to witches’ hat. Cool completely.
