(Adapted from Taste of Home)

2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 tablespoon vanilla

3 cups flour

1 cup cocoa

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the eggs beating well. In a medium sized bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Once the dry ingredients are mixed together slowly pour into creamed mixture. Beat till combined. It will be thick.

To make cats:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a large cookie scoop make a ball. Put a lollipop stick half way into the ball. Using the bottom of a jar dipped in sugar flatten the ball. Pinch the top to make ears. Using the tines of a fork make the whiskers. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and quickly use candy corns for the eyes and a red hot as the nose. Allow cookies to cool.
