  • 200 grams self raising flour
  • 200 grams caster sugar
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 60 grams cocoa powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 50 grams icing sugar
  • 100 grams chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 190 C/170 C fan/375F/Gas Mark 5
  • Put the sugar, oil and cocoa into your mixing bowl and beat together. It will look like sandy rubble.
  • Add your eggs and beat until mixed well together.
  • Tip in the flour and chocolate chips. Mix well together.
  • Now comes the fun part kiddoes. Put your icing sugar in a bowl and take a small amount of mixture in your hand. I weigh mine out to be about 40 grams each.
  • Roll into a ball and then roll around in the icing sugar to fully coat them. Place on your lined baking tray.
  • This makes about sixteen of them so you will have two trays to bake. I do them one at a time for approx 12 minutes. They will set as they cool. So if you want them fudgy in the middle then don't bake them for any longer.
  • As soon as they are out of the oven carefully press a pair of googly eyes into the appropriate places on your cookies.
  • Move to a cooling rack to fully cool.


  • If your mixture is too sticky to roll then chill for thirty minutes in the fridge.
  • Bake for longer to get a crisper cookie.
  • Let the kids decorate them with icing and sprinkles for a fun Halloween activity.
  • Store them in an air tight container for up to a week.
