There’s nothing quite like homemade cookies: warm, chewy, and with a distinct flavor that store-bought varieties have yet to replicate, any person of any age instantly recognizes the smell. So how can you make something so perfect just a bit better? With a few tweaks!

This homemade cookie recipe takes a basic oatmeal refrigerator cookie and combines it with a decadent, chocolate cookie base to create a miniature kitty face! Topped with chocolate chips, red hots, and licorice, you have something worthy of any party, bake sale, or a tray of after-school goodies to welcome your kids home with! Just one important note: be ready with candy toppings in hand for the minute the cookies come out of the oven so that they stick in the still warm dough. Enjoy!
