More About This Recipe
  • These cats are ready to party!

    Chocolatey and sweet, these Kwanzaa Cat cookies are deliciously adorable—a great addition to your Kwanzaa celebration!

    Betty Crocker™ Chocolate Chunk cookie mix is really my best friend. Absolutely loaded with chocolate chunks, it’s an amazing thing.

    Don’t eat the dough. I know it’s hard, but we need it! Drop the dough on the cookie sheet by spoonfuls and bake.

    Let the cookies cool a bit, but while they’re still soft, push the black round sprinkles in for the eyes. And maybe eat one cookie because, I mean, they are soft and gooey and right out of the oven! Let the rest cool completely.

    Frost the back of the chocolate Necco™ wafer and put it in the middle of the cookie. Frost the bottom of the chocolate chips and put them on top of the cookie for the ears.

    Place the red confetti sprinkle in the middle of the Necco™ wafer for the nose. If you put a little bit of frosting on a toothpick, it’s easy to attach.

    Draw on a cute little mouth and whiskers on the Necco™ wafer with a black edible marker.

    Make some designs with the edible marker on a holiday candy corn.

    Cut off the tip of the candy corn, turn upside down and add to the top of the cookie with frosting.

    Your Kwanzaa Cat cookie couldn’t be cuter!
