Instructions Checklist
  • In a small saucepan combine 3/4 cup of the candies and milk. Melt over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat.

  • Prepare cookie mixes according to package directions. Stir melted chocolate into half the dough. Form chocolate dough into two 12-inch long rolls about 1 inch in diameter. Wrap in wax paper or foil. Chill until firm, about 2 hours.

  • Divide plain dough in half. On a well-floured surface, roll each plain half out to a 12 x 6 inch rectangle. Place a chocolate roll on long edge. Roll up, pressing doughs lightly together so plain dough encases chocolate roll. Repeat with remaining dough.

  • Wrap each roll in wax paper or foil. Chill about 2 hours until firm. Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).

  • Cut each roll into 1/4 inch slices. Place 2 slices so they are touching on greased baking sheet. In the center of each chocolate circle, place one of the remaining candies for eye. Where the slices touch, place a cashew to form nose.

  • Bake until the plain cookie is lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and cool on wire racks.

I picked up a package of cookie mix yesterday not even thinking that the weight would be different than the recipe (dumb I know). So I looked at the pkg this morning and saw that it is 17.5 oz not 24 oz. This most likely is another example of a manufacturer trying to keep the cost the same by reducing quantity which can really screw up older recipes. Also don 't be sucked in thinking this is an easy recipe because it uses a cookie mix. It's pretty labor intensive but does produce a pretty cute cookie. They spread out so do allow at least 2" between cookies and don't overcook as they will be hard as a rock. I learned a few things in making these today that will make them look more "owl-like" the next time. Read More

These were adorable! However I only took the chocolate dough out of the fridge after I finished rolling out the normal dough- that makes it a tad firmer and easier to roll-up. Also I used Smarties and pecans(because that's what I had) and halved the Smarties to make sleepy owls(see picture). Read More
