Spiderweb Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

With Halloween coming closer, all weekend I have been in full spirit making Halloween inspired yum-yums and watching the Munsters.  I have decided that if I could be anyone, it would be Lilly Munster.  I would dress like it was Halloween everyday, decorate the entire house like a haunted house and make Halloween inspired dinners every night for my family.  So to start, I made these Spiderweb Double Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Chewy and chocolatie, they are perfect to enjoy with almond milk or bat milk, if we were in the Munsters house!

Spiderweb Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Spiderweb Frosting:

  • 1/4 c Cashews
  • 1 tbls Agave Nectar
  • 2 tsp Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 tsp Filtered Water

In a Magic Bullet using the flat blade or in a blender, blend all the ingredients until completely smooth. Empty into a plastic bag and let harden in the fridge while you make the Double Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  • 2/3 c Walnuts
  • 2/3 c Dates
  • 3 tbls Cacao Powder
  • 3 tbls Cacao Nibs (this will provide the chocolate chip crunch)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder

In a food processor, process the walnuts, then add the dates and after add the rest of the ingredients.  Roll the dough into 1 1/2 tbls size balls and form into cookie shapes.

To frost, cut/poke a tiny 1 mm hole in the plastic bag.  With a steady hand, frost 3 cross lines across the cookie that all meet in the middle.  Then add 2-3 circles to resemble cobwebs over the top of the crossed lines.  For safe storage, face cookies side by side so as to not destroy the cobweb frosting.

Makes 16-18 cookies
