Mocha Mummy Cookies
Enjoy your weekend!
Mocha Mummy Cookies©www.BakingInATornado.com
1 stick butter, softened
1 stick margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons chocolate syrup
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 TBSP unsweetened baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules
9 ounces of vanilla bark
Approximately 72 mini M&Ms
*Cream the butter, margarine and sugars until smooth. Beat in the vanilla, chocolate syrup and eggs. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
*Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into approximately ¾ inch balls and place onto parchment paper. Press each ball down slightly with the heel of your hand.
*Bake approximately 13 - 15 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully slide the parchment paper off of the cookie sheet. Allow the cookies to cool completely.
*Melt the vanilla bark in the microwave, checking and stirring frequently, until smooth.
*Place the melted bark into a plastic sandwich bag. Snip one corner and drizzle the white chocolate onto the cookies to resemble a mummy “wrap” (see picture of finished cookie).
*Immediately make “eyes” using 2 mini M&Ms per cookie. Allow to set on the counter about 5 minutes, then move to the fridge until the bark has hardened.
