They’re so rich and decadent, and will not disappoint you with their fudgey texture. You can make them anytime, omitting the spooky eyes. But honestly, they’re so cute, I think I have to have them on their regardless of the time of the year!

We used Hershey’s Dark Cocoa Powder in these cookies, and it’s currently my go to for cocoa powder. It makes everything a little more chocolatey!
