Face Off Cookies are ideal for making with little people, who can assist with dipping the tops of the cookies into melted chocolate to make the “hair”. Totally personalisable, the bottom recipe beneath has dairy and gluten loose adaptations, and the dough may be colored the use of cocoa powder and spices relying for your taste.
Making the real face imprint is easy too, you’ll simply want package which you likely have already got to your kitchen – a teaspoon, a blunt butter knife and a few cocktail sticks or a skewer – to poke shapes into the dough earlier than baking. If you’re now no longer satisfied with the design, simply re-roll the dough and attempt again!
