  • 10 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 3/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar Packed
  • 2/3 Cup Dark Molasses
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3 1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Allspice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • 2 8 Ounce Bags Ghiradelli Milk Chocolate Melting Wafers
  • 1 Container Wilton Holly Melody Sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves together until combined; set aside
  • Cream butter and brown sugar, in the bowl of a stand-up mixer, on medium speed until completely smooth and creamy.
  • Mix in egg and vanilla until incorporated.
  • Mix in molasses and beat on medium until incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Turn mixer on low and gradually add flour mixture until combined.
  • Lightly flour counter top. Roll dough out to 1 inch thick. Using a Mickey Mouse Head cookie cutter cut out cookies. Place on prepared baking sheets and bake in preheated oven for 9-12 minutes. Cool completely on the wire rack
  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. When chocolate is melted, dip completely cooled cookies, approximately 1/4 of the way in and covering the ears. Lightly shake the cookies to remove excess chocolate. Placed dipped cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet and place two holly sprinkles and 3 red berry sprinkles onto the top right corner. Allow chocolate to completely harden before enjoying.
