You'll find step-by-step photos on this page which show you exactly how to make some feet that you'd expect to see on Bilbo or Frodo Baggins. Perfect little sweet treats for kids birthday parties, Hobbit themed Halloween events and more.

Feet that You'll Want to Eat!

Just below is the recipe with step by step photos for the Hobbit Foot Cookies. Made from simple vanilla cookie dough and decorated with a little chocolate, they're actually feet that you won't mind eating at all - nibble away!

Hobbits as described by Tolkien in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books walk about with bare feet which have toughened skin on the soles and they are hairy too. The hair is thick and curly and will normally match the color of the Hobbits own hair. What great fun these cookies will be for a Hobbit themed birthday, Halloween party or other event.

Hairy Hobbit Feet Cookies

Hobbit feet that are tasty treats with vanilla cookie feet and yummy chocolate decoration.

Prep time 30 min  -  Total time 60 min
Ingredients for 20 servings
113g unsalted butter  • 113g caster sugar  • 1 beaten egg  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract  • 225g plain flour  • 150g bar baking chocolate for decorating

1: Make the Vanilla Cookie Dough

1: Make the Vanilla Cookie Dough

Add softened butter and sugar into a large mixing bowl. You can combine the ingredients with a hand whisk or an electric whisk which is easier. Add in the vanilla extract and 1 egg. Whisk together until everything is combined well.

Gradually add your flour to the bowl and whisk until you have a very crumbly mixture. Use clean hands to squeeze the mixture into a big ball of firm cookie dough. Wrap this ball in some plastic food wrap and place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

2: Cut out and Bake the Cookie Feet

2: Cut out and Bake the Cookie Feet

When the cookie dough has been chilled, take it out of the food wrap and roll it out onto a large, flat work surface. You might only be able to roll a portion, like half of the dough if you don't have a large enough work area. Roll to the thickness you like which is around 5mm for me.

Use your foot cutter to cut out as many cookie feet as you can. Place the cut feet onto a lightly floured baking tray with a small gap in between each one. If you want to make pairs of feet, you'll have to turn some of the cookie feet upside down so you have a left and a right foot. Bake on Gas 4 (350°F / 177°C) for around 10-12 mins. When the feet are ready, they'll be a nice golden brown. Place onto cooling racks to cool down.

3: Prepare Your Chocolate

3: Prepare Your Chocolate

Take about one-third of your baking chocolate bar and grate it using the large cutters on a standard grater. Put the grated chocolate to one side as that becomes the hairy detail on your Hobbit's feet!

Melt the rest of your baking chocolate. Break up the pieces and pop them into a microwaveable pouring jug like the one shown. Microwave the baking chocolate in short 20-30 second bursts (stirring with a spoon in between) until it's all nicely melted.

4: Get Your Icing Equipment Ready

4: Get Your Icing Equipment Ready

You might have icing bags but I definitely prefer my Kuhn Rikon squirt bottles which you can use to ice with - the benefit being if the melted chocolate starts to harden up, just take the top off the bottle and pop back in the microwave to melt it again while it's still in the bottle. Much easier. It means you can take your time and you don't have to waste any unusable chocolate!

Just pour the melted chocolate from the jug into your icing container.

5: Ice on Some Chocolate Nails

5: Ice on Some Chocolate Nails

Ice on 5 chocolate nails shapes onto each cookie foot where the toes are. Hold your icing nozzle at an angle so the chocolate doesn't run out too quickly. Practice on a sheet of baking paper first if you find the idea of icing daunting.

6: Ice on the Hobbit Hair

6: Ice on the Hobbit Hair

Remember that if you're using a Kuhn icing bottle and the chocolate starts to harden up making it useless to ice with, simply take off the top of the bottle with the metal tip and place the open bottle into your microwave. Zap in short 10 second bursts (checking in between) until it's melted again. Pop the nozzle back on and use.

Now you need to go loopy with your icing and add some rounded loops and squiggles to make a 'hairy' area of chocolate on your hobbit feet cookies. Just do one foot then move to step 7 before the chocolate hardens.

7: Add the Grated Chocolate

7: Add the Grated Chocolate

Sprinkle your grated chocolate just over the curly hair pattern you've iced onto the cookie foot. Tap off any excess and you're left with a good impression of textured hair. Go back to step 6 and repeat for the rest of your cookie feet.

8: Tada - Hairy Hobbit Feet Ready to Eat!

Leave your cookie feet somewhere cool so the chocolate can harden up before you serve them to any Hobbit fans. I hope you've enjoyed reading my wizzles page today, thanks for your visit. Washing up your chocolate coated icing bottle is easy. Just use plenty of warm, soapy water and a bottle brush! This is a fast method for washing out the Kuhn Rikon icing bottles.

Thank you, Katie. Yes, I do quite a few hand and feet crafts with my daughter. She found it very funny to make some hairy feet even though she doesn't really know what a Hobbit is!

Feet are such a cool and interesting thing in regards to kids, they can make them on a foggy window with their hands and make such great crafts in school outlining their hands and feet. This made me think of the many good times as a child grows. Love the hobbit feet cookies, a fun party favor for any kids party young or old.
