Simple and delicious vegan sugar cookies decorated with rich Dark 85% Chocolate and icing sugar mummy faces. Add on some edible sugar googly eyes for a really Halloween treat. They are naturally vegan and great to make with children, too.


  • 100g vegan butter or margarine
  • 100g Fairtrade caster or light brown sugar (or half and half)
  • 1 tsp Fairtrade vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp plant-based milk
  • 250g plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 70g Fairtrade Divine Dark 85% Chocolate
  • 70g icing sugar
  • 2-3 tsp water
  • Sugar edible eyes or sprinkles



1. Preheat the oven to 160Fan/180*C and line a cookie sheet with baking paper.

2. Cream together the butter/margarine and sugar until fluffy and creamy. Stir in the vanilla essence and plant-based milk.

3. Add in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and the salt and stir to form a ball of dough. Bring it together with your hands.

4. Transfer the dough to a surface covered in parchment paper and roll out to about 1cm thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes and transfer to the cookie sheet (use a pallet knife to loosen them).

5. Bake for 10 minutes until golden and allow to cool fully on the tray on a wire rack.

6. Melt the chocolate and dip each cookie in to coat the cookies evenly. Allow to cool again before decorating with icing sugar and the sugar edible eyes.
