Sparky from “Frankenweenie” Cookies

Since Labor Day is over with, I think it’s safe to start finding fun Halloween themed treats and such! Here’s a cute cookie recipe inspired by Sparky from Frankenweenie, courtesy of Disney Family!
What You’ll Need
Batch of chilled sugar cookie dough (homemade or store bought)
Rolling pin
Wax paper
Kitchen knife
Baking sheet
Cooling rack
Chocolate chips or chocolate Candy Melts
Small microwavable bowl
Small spoon
Butter knife
White Mentos mints
Chocolate sprinkles
How To Make It
  • Heat the oven to the specified temperature for the cookie dough. Meanwhile, print and cut out the template pieces.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface to ¼-inch thickness and then use the template and kitchen knife to cut out a bunch of Sparky heads. Bake the cookies according to the recipe directions and transfer them to the cooling rack. Next, cut a pair of cookie dough ears for each head. Bake (they won’t take as long as the heads) and cool them as well.
  • Melt ½ cup or so of chocolate chips or Candy Melts in a microwavable bowl, heating them for 10- to 15-second intervals until they are soft enough to stir into a smooth consistency.
  • Attach a pair of cookie ears to each head. First, flip the ears over so the flat undersides face up. Spread melted chocolate on the lower ¼ inch of each ear, and then stick them in place to the underside of the head.
  • Now add eyes. Working with one cookie at a time, spoon two nickel-size dollops of melted chocolate where the eyes go. Gently press a Mentos candy onto each dollop so that the chocolate oozes out a bit underneath it. Use the tip of a toothpick to add tiny chocolate pupils to the eyes. (Note: Your can reheat the chocolate in the bowl or melt a new batch, as needed.)
  • Attach a raisin nose to the tip of each cookie with a bit of chocolate “glue.”
  • For the finishing touch, use the toothpick to apply chocolate eyebrows. Likewise, add a curved chocolate cut line on each Sparky cookie nose and embellish it with a few sprinkle stitches before the chocolate hardens.
