Mix flour, baking powder and salt until well blended. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Add chocolate; mix well. Divide dough in half; wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours.
Place half the dough on lightly floured surface; roll into 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into bat and cat shapes with 3-inch cookie cutters, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
Bake 10 to 12 min. or until firm around the edges. Cool on baking sheets 2 min.; transfer to wire racks. Cool completely. Decorate with gel.
Enjoy your favorite foods on occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.
Omit decorating gel. Let the kids decorate the unbaked cookies with colored sugar, multi-colored and chocolate sprinkles, chopped mixed nuts and/or seasonal candies before baking as directed.
