Ingredients
  

Chocolate Cookie Dough

  • 1 stick of vegan butter (110g)
  • 100 g cane sugar (3.5 oz)
  • 100 g brown sugar (3.5 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (15 ml)
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnut syrup (optional) (15 ml)
  • 60 ml unsweetened plant milk, eg: almond, oat, soy (4 tbsp)
  • 60 g unsweetened cocoa powder (2.1 oz)
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch, or tapioca starch
  • 180 g unbleached all-purpose flour (6.3 oz)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 150 g vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips (5.3 oz)

For the Mummy face

  • 85 g vegan white chocolate (chopped, or chips) (2.9 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 30 vegan googly eyes

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F.
  • To make the cookie dough beat butter in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add cane sugar and brown sugar, and mix again. Once sugars and butter are blended well add oil and plant milk and beat again. If using hazelnut syrup, add now as well. Sieve cornstarch, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and flour. into a bowl to combine. Then add in three sections (cup by cup) to the butter-sugar mixture while beating with an electric mixer. Mix until just combined. The dough will be very sticky. With a spatula fold in the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • With an ice cream scoop, scoop dough onto a prepared baking sheet until no dough remains. Make sure to keep space in between them because the cookie dough balls will melt. Bake cookies for 12 minutes. (If you want them softer, take them out of the oven earlier. For crispier cookies bake them a couple of minutes longer.)
  • Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Let cool completely before decorating.
  • To decorate the cookies melt white chocolate with a water bath. Add boiled, hot water to a shallow bowl. Place your chocolate and oil in a heatproof bowl, and set the bowl directly in the hot water. Alternatively, you can microwave the white chocolate with the oil, stirring every twenty seconds until smooth and creamy. Use a spoon and drizzle back and forth across the cookies making the mummy wraps. Add googly eyes while the white chocolate is still soft. Allow chocolate to cool and set. 
  • Once chocolate is set serve and enjoy your spooky vegan Halloween mummy cookies!

*Where to find vegan white chocolate? One brand that is easily available at Walmart is Organic Great Value White Chocolate Chips, but there are many other white chocolate brands you could use. Alternatively, make your own.
Where to find vegan Googly Eyes? Many stores carry googly eyes, unfortunately, many of these have egg whites, milk powder, or confectioners glaze (shellac) added. So make sure to check the ingredient list before purchasing! Lots of Etsy stores carry vegan googly eyes too, but I also have a great googly eye recipe for you to make your very own!
