Chocolate Chip Cookies: A Happiness Spell

I've made plenty of promises to myself throughout my life ( I am a witch, after all), but one promise in particular is to be the mom who makes the best chocolate chip cookies.

Why? Because to me, chocolate chip cookies are the ultimate happiness food. It brings memories of baking with my mom, receiving compliments on how they're baked to perfection from my dad, and bonding with my brother.

These cookies have been in my life through all the good and all the bad times. This, by itself, makes these cookies infused with happiness energy whenever I bake them.

But as we kitchen witches do, I want to work with the power of the ingredients to not only make the best happiness spell ever to exist but also help provide others with that energy.

Ingredients and Their Magickal Properties

As I always mention in my recipe posts, the purpose of what I do as a kitchen witch relies on knowledge and intention.

Yes, this recipe will still taste delicious without transforming it into a spell. However, knowing your ingredients is essential to utilize this recipe to help change your mind, body, and spirit.

Below is a list of each added ingredient and its extraordinary power for this recipe. Please note that this is not every magickal benefit of this plant or herb, just the areas I believe should be focused on for this specific recipe.

Cacao - Chocolate

Who hasn't bit into a chocolate bar and experienced happiness from their head to their feet?

The Maya believed the cacao tree was from the gods—a gift of divine love that brought about people's well-being, especially concerning fertility.

Mother Earth provides this energy through Cacao's chemical compounds that release dopamine and serotonin into one who ingests the plant.

The power of chocolate to promote relaxation and joy is the energy base we use for our spell here.

Magickal Uses: Peace/Relaxation, Comfort, Love, Gratitude, Happiness, Health.


It is such a seemingly minor ingredient, yet an essential one in both taste and energy. Anyone who has accidentally forgotten to add salt to a baked good can tell you how that little tsp is a stepping stone between amazing and disgusting.

Salt is associated with the earth element, making it excellent for grounding. I find when performing happiness or peace spells, it helps to utilize the power of grounding to help those get out of their thoughts and return to the physical.

Our salt for this spell is for purifying. We first pave the way by removing the negative to bring in positive energy. It's a simple concept but one of great power. This is why I try to add one purifying ingredient into all of my workings, as you're just increasing the power and success of your spell.

Magickal Powers: purification, grounding.


Our fermented orchid, vanilla, holds associations with the feminine, water, and Venus; therefore, it is all about tuning into our emotions, an exact spot to be to feel true happiness.

For a long time, folk magick utilized vanilla for love. What does love have to do with a happiness spell?

Well, the love we're looking for here isn't that of the romantic type (although vanilla is excellent for that, too) but the feeling of community or family. A mother's love, the love of a friend, and even self-love. All of these are aspects of promoting joy.

It's not all about joy either; vanilla also holds the energy of comfort and peace.

Magickal Powers: Love, Comfort, Peace


Cinnamon has a rich history, from its use in medicine in Egypt to offerings in Greece.

One of my favorite magickal uses of cinnamon is for its power of success. For this spell, we're utilizing that power to guarantee the success of this spell essentially.

Now, please note that the cinnamon is completely optional here. However, I've found it helps enhance the chocolate taste in these cookies.


Magickal Powers: Prosperity/Good Fortune, Love, Success/Power

Wheat - Flour

Wheat has been used as worship for abundance for centuries. A good harvest was considered a foreshadowing of a year of good fortune.

Associated as gifts from gods and goddesses of Earth, it helped ground and bond communities. "Breaking Bread" is a well-known phrase developed through paganism worship, connecting those who shared and ate together.

For our spell, flour shows us the abundance in our lives, including the abundance in the community, reminding us how we're all connected and never truly alone.

Note: If it is an available for you, whole wheat will be better for your spell and diet as other flours have been further processed, removing magickal energy and vitamins and minerals. I use Bob's Red Mill.


Magickal Powers: Abundance, Community, Prosperity

Spell Recipe

How to Implement Magick into the Recipe

*When adding your ingredients, remember to focus on the intention of the ingredient while working with it. (I.E., when folding in your flour, focus on the intention of abundance.

Not just the idea, but how does it make you feel? How does having these things in your life manifest?

I also recommend using the intentional stirring and speaking method to add to this spell. Stir counterclockwise for energies that need to be removed and clockwise for energies you wish to implement while speaking your incantations (or intention) out loud.

For example, I would stir clockwise when adding the vanilla while speaking to the pot.

Spirit of vanilla, bless this dish with communal love and comfort.

I recommend also consecrating via an incantation when the recipe is all said and done. Although I always recommend creating your own, as spells tend to be more powerful, you can also use the incantation below:

Through this dish, I bring in the blessings of joy. May the universe sweeten my life by allowing myself and those around me to feel pure happiness. So as it's been, so as it is, so as it may be.

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 2 tsp cinnamon, ground (optional)

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 bag of mini semisweet chocolate chips (regular-sized chocolate chips will work as well; I find the mini give a better ratio)
