Candy Corn Cookies

You may remember that I posted about making Candy Corn Cookies the other day.

Yes, those Candy Corn Cookies.

I made them for the LA Galaxy Game because, even though it was definitely implied that I was only expected to buy cookies, I like to bake my way into peoples’ hearts.

I also made them because I bought candy corn on a whim the other day and needed to use it up so I wouldn’t eat it by the handful (candy corn is so addicting).

I also made them because I’ve been craving oatmeal chocolate chip cookies like whoa.

Finally, I also made them because I decided it was high time for a Halloween-themed cookie recipe. Holiday recipes are the best, don’t you think?

Obviously, I combined all of these elements for this recipe.

And, if I do say so myself, this recipe is a keeper.

Candy Corn Cookies

makes 2 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter (at room temperature)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift together flour, oats, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to combine brown sugar, white sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla.

Use a spoon to stir dry mixture into wet mixture.

Stir in candy corn and chocolate chips.

Spoon rounded tablespoons of dough onto greased cookie sheets.

Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.

These cookies were a pretty big hit with everyone, so I think I can call them a winner. They were chewy and packed with flavor — everything I think a cookie should be.

Happy Fall! Serve these for Halloween and make friends. :)

    mmm genius idea combining the oats with the candy corn! i think they’d totally balance each other out. i love candy corn- i have to buy it in the little tubes or i’d actually devour the whole bag in one sitting.

  3. This is awesome. I am totally saving this!

  4. love! i will be making that!

  5. Not too many people really like candy corn, but I am one of them, so I have got to do this! Can’t wait to try them!
