Cat Scat Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

These look like so much fun for a Halloween or children's party. For best visual results, serve the cookies in a new, washed!, kitty litter pan, lined with foil and serve the cookies with a new, washed kitty litter scoop. Chicago Sun-Times.

These look fantastic! One change, I chilled the dough a bit before rolling to make it easier to handle. My two daughters (7&9) handled the shaping and rolling in GrapeNuts. They look great! The only reason they got a 4 instead of a 5 is because they're good cookies but not great cookies, flavor wise. I think the GrapeNuts could be off putting to some, although I liked them. Thanks for such a great recipe!

Directions

  1. Place honey in a heat-proof bowl and microwave on high heat until bubbles appear, about a minute; add butter and stir until combined. Add flour, cocoa powder, egg and vanilla and stir to combine.
  2. Form dough into small, log-shaped cookies of random lengths to resemble cat dukies. Place logs on a baking sheet and refrigerate until firm. Roll chilled logs in Grape nuts until cereal adheres to the dough -- the cookies don't have to be totally covered with the cereal, they should look sort of random or realistic.
  3. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake in a preheated 350° oven for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and place cookies on a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Line a clean litter box with foil and cover bottom with additional Grape Nuts cereal. Add cookies to the 'litter' and serve with a new (clean) litter scoop. LOL.
