I was going to tell you a joke about the solar eclipse, but I figured it would be overshadowed by better ones! This year, on April 8th, we will experience a solar eclipse! A solar eclipse happens when the Moon moves between the Earth and the Sun, blocking the Sun’s light temporarily. It’s like the Moon is standing in front of the Sun, casting a shadow on Earth. This makes it look like the Sun is disappearing for a little while. It’s a fascinating event where the Moon hides the Sun from our view for a short time!

If you’re looking forward to witnessing this thrilling occurrence, it’s essential to complement it with a delectable dessert. Enhance your solar eclipse experience with moon cookies – not only are they irresistibly delicious, but they’re also easy to make.

What You’ll Need:

    • 2 Cups of All-Purpose Flour
    • ¾ Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
    • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
    • ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
    • 1 Cup of Granulated Sugar
    • ½ Cup of Unsalted Butter
    • 1 Large Egg
    • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    • 1 Cup of Milk
    • 2 Cups of Powdered Sugar
    • ½ Cups of Unsalted Butter
    • 2 tablespoons of Milk
    • ¼ Cup of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

Let’s Begin:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients together.
  2. In a new bowl, combine sugar and softened butter and beat on medium until light and fluffy. Once fluffy, add your egg, vanilla and beat for one more minute.
  3. Once combined, alternate between mixing in your milk and dry ingredients into your wet ingredients bowl.
  4. With your cookie dough, create 12 balls on your baking sheet and freeze the dough for 10 minutes. Once frozen, bake your cookies for 12 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. While your cookies are cooling, combine your frosting ingredients (don’t utilize your cocoa, yet!) in a bowl on medium-low for three minutes. Once your frosting is smooth and incorporated, divide the frosting into two bowls and mix in your cocoa in one bowl.
  6. Lastly, frost one half of your cookie with the chocolate frosting, and the other half with your original frosting.

There you have it! Delicious cookies for your solar eclipse watch party! Buy all your moon cookie ingredients at Price Chopper/Market 32!
