Spider Eyes

cookies for Halloween

1 1/4 cups margarine
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
3 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder, plus enough flour to make 1/2 cup
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups rolled oats
up to 3 cups Cocoa Puffs cereal
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, cream margarine and sugars. Add egg and
vanilla extract, and beat. In another bowl combine flour, cocoa
powder, baking soda and oats. Add this mixture to the sugar mixture
and combine thoroughly. Pour the Cocoa Puffs into a separate bowl.
Take the dough, a tablespoonful at a time, and form it into balls.
Press each ball firmly into the Cocoa Puffs, so that the cereal
sticks to the dough on one side of the ball. Poke additional cereal
into any bare spots. Place the balls 1-inch apart on an ungreased
cookie sheet, and flatten them slightly. Bake for 9 minutes. Cool
on wire racks.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen large cookies.
