1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

In a bowl, combine butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture. Roll dough into 1-1/2 inch balls. Place 3 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Flatten with a glass dipped in sugar. Pinch tops of cookie to form ears. For whiskers, press a fork twice into each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 to 8 minutes, until almost set. Remove from oven; immediately press on candy corn for eyes and cinnamon candies for noses.
