Candy Corn M&M Chocolate Cookies

If you guys follow my blog (which you all should , bloglovin' link here.)  You will know that I did some limited edition candy shopping, which you can check out here.  So here is my first recipe including those goodies!

These crazy Candy Corn White Chocolate M&Ms are actually pretty good in my opinion, very sweet but I love white chocolate.  Plus I think they kind of taste like marshmallows.  I knew I wanted to pop them into a chocolate cookie ASAP.  The following recipe is adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction.


  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 bag of Candy Corn M&Ms (set some aside for pressing into the top)
Cream butter and sugars together.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Add in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt on a low speed.  Stir in milk by hand and then fold in the M&Ms, leaving some behind for later.  Chill the dough.  

Preheat oven to 350F degrees, and line your baking sheets.  Roll chilled dough into a ball, flatten it slightly and press some M&Ms into the tops of the cookies.  Bake for 12 minutes. 

These cookies are so soft and delicious, I love how they turned out!  Plus they are so Halloween appropriate.

  1. These look wonderful and perfect for Halloween! Great photos with the leaves. My roommate and boyfriend always look at me like I have two heads when I take my creations outside to photograph. Lol
