In honor of National Candy Corn Day we asked Annie, the baker behind the yummy Bakin You Crazy Instagram account, to show us how to whip together her favorite candy corn treat! Read on to learn how to whip up her sweet and spooky recipe.
Triple Chocolate Candy Corn Cookies
Yields 20-24 normal size cookies or 6-8 jumbo cookies
1 cup salted butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 table spoons milk
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons instant chocolate pudding mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips (plus more to place on top, optional)
1 cup white chocolate chips (plus more to place on top, optional)
1 cup candy corn (plus more to place on top, optional)
Instructions | Part 1
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for 45 seconds or until completely melted.
- Add sugar to butter. Beat on low until smooth.
- Add vanilla, eggs and milk to butter and sugar mixture. Mix on low until thorough combined.
- In separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, pudding, baking soda, and salt.
- Slowly, pour flour mixture into butter mixture while beating on low.
- Add chocolate chips and mix. (DISCLAIMER: You can add candy corn to cookie dough now or directly after cookies are removed from oven. The latter prevents unpredictable cookie shapes due to melted candy corn.
Instructions | Part 2
- Place heaping tables spoons of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. (DISCLAIMER: If candy corn was mixed into dough, make sure no candy corn is in direct contact with the baking sheet. This will result in deformed cookies. Instead, shape dough so candy corn is on top or inside the ball of cookie dough.)
- Bake for 8-10 minutes depending on oven. Cookies should look gooey and soft. Do not over bake!!
- For picture perfect cookies, additional chocolate chips and candy corn can be placed on warm cookies with a slight push.
- The cookies should remain soft and fudgy when cool… If they last that long!
- Voilà! Delicious Halloween treats!
Thanks Annie for the sweet treat recipe!
