Preheat the oven to 180 C and prepare the baking trays by lining them with parchment paper and butter. Set it aside.
Whisk the butter and sugar together till you achieve a fluffy mixture. Then add vanilla extract and eggs. Beat the mixture well until it's well combined.
Add flour mixed with baking powder to the wet mixture. Mix it till you have stiff cookie dough ready.
Now, add the choco chips to the dough and fold them into the dough till they are well distributed.
Divide the cookie dough into 20 small balls and place them on the baking trays at equal distances.
Flatten out the cookie dough balls with the help of your palm.
Let the cookies bake now for 10-12 minutes. Take them out when you see the corners of the cookies browning.
Leave the cookies to cool down for 10 minutes. When they are cooled, transfer them to a wire rack and let them cool completely.
For Halloween cookie decoration, get the melted chocolate in the piping bag and use Maltesers and the melted chocolate to form spiders. Use icing to make the white dots for the spiders' eyes. Now, repeat the decoration on all cookies.
