  • ½ teaspoon baking soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line several baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Place the butter and sugar in a large bowl and beat together until light and fluffy.  Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.  Sift in the flour, cocoa and baking soda and beat until well mixed.
  3. With dampened hands, roll teaspoon sized pieces of the dough into smooth balls.  Place on the baking sheets, spaced well apart.

How to make Halloween Witches Hats -
To make the Witches Hats:
  1. Roll the cones in a bowl of the melted chocolate to coat the outsides.  Stand on a wire rack to allow the chocolate to set.  Dip your Pebbles of Mini M&M’s into the remaining melted chocolate and adhere to the chocolate cones.
  2. In the centre of each cookie, place the candy you want to hide inside the hat.  
  3. Dip the rim of an ice cream cone in the melted chocolate and put it onto one of the cookies, repeat the process. 
  4. As a finishing touch you could tie a thin ribbon around the ‘brim’ of each hat.
