    A very rich, dark chocolate cutout cookie that bakes up almost black, great with milk. Perfect to decorate for Halloween. Makes about 44 2-3 inch cookies. Can also be used to make a Hauted House. From Martha Stewart. Prep time includes chill time.

      Very good - extremely chocolatey and intensive. I did add a bit of more flour (scant 1/4 cup) when mixing the dough so that it no longer stuck to the bowl and formed a ball. The dough was still quite sticky so I worried if the cookies would keep their shape, but the freezer trick worked perfectly; no problems with the baking part at all! Lovely cookies, thank you for sharing!
