- Unsalted butter – 200g
- Caster sugar – 200g
- Plain flour – 400g
- 1 egg
- Chocolate – I used dairy milk bars 200g each
- Sprinkles (optional)
Step 1 – Place the sugar and the butter in a bowl and whisk together until creamy
Step 2 – Beat the egg and add it to the bowl of the sugar and butter
Step 3 – Add the flour into the bowl of the ingredients and mix into a dough
Step 4 – Wrap the dough in cling film and chill the dough for an hour
Step 5 – Roll out the dough and begin to cut your Mickey shapes (I used a Mickey cookie cutter)
Step 6 – Place the cut out Mickey’s onto a baking tray lined with baking paper
Step 7 – Cool these for an extra 30 minutes before baking
Step 8 – Preheat your oven to 180 Celsius and bake for 12-14 minutes (or until golden brown)
Step 9 – Once your cookies are out the oven, let them cool for 10-20 minutes before placing them onto a cooling rack
Step 10 – Now that the cookies are cool, you can begin decorating!
For my cookies, I melted the dairy milk bars in the microwave and used a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the ears.
I then sprinkled the chocolate ears with coloured and chocolate sprinkles.
Let the chocolate dry and then they are ready to eat!
