To Make the Peanut Butter Cookies
To Decorate the Cookies
SUBSTITUTES FOR CANDY EYES
If candy eyes are not available where you live, one suggestion is to pipe some eyes onto the chocolate truffles. You could use the same chocolate as for the legs to make simple dark eyes, or perhaps use white chocolate for simple white eyes. Or you could go to the effort of piping white chocolate for the eyeballs, followed by dark chocolate for the pupils.
In Switzerland, the vegetable shortening I use is called Pflanzenfett in German, or graisse végétale in French. It is available from both Migros and Co-op and sold alongside the oil and olive oil.
All recipes on this website state temperatures for a regular oven (i.e. a conventional oven without fan). If you have a convection oven with a fan, please consult the manufacturer’s handbook on how to adjust the temperature and baking time accordingly.
