How to Make Halloween Treats

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

How to Make Halloween Treats

Yields 20-24 normal size cookies or 6-8 jumbo cookies

1 cup salted butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
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)

How to Make Halloween Treats

Instructions | Part 1

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for 45 seconds or until completely melted.
  3. Add sugar to butter. Beat on low until smooth.
  4. Add vanilla, eggs and milk to butter and sugar mixture. Mix on low until thorough combined.
  5. In separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, pudding, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Slowly, pour flour mixture into butter mixture while beating on low.
  7. 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.

How to Make Halloween Treats

How to Make Halloween Treats

Instructions | Part 2

  1. 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.)
  2. Bake for 8-10 minutes depending on oven. Cookies should look gooey and soft. Do not over bake!!
  3. For picture perfect cookies, additional chocolate chips and candy corn can be placed on warm cookies with a slight push.
  4. The cookies should remain soft and fudgy when cool… If they last that long!
  5. Voilà! Delicious Halloween treats!

How To Style The AEO Oversized Plaid Blazer With The Boho Flow

Fall is all about getting cozy in bold prints and patterns. Our Oversized Plaid Blazer is the quintessential transition piece for getting used to those colder days. Cristina from THE BOHO FLOW pieces together similar color tones for classic #AEOSTYLE. Get to know Cristina and the inspiration behind her look below.

Meet Cristina: Travelling between New York, Montreal and Los Angeles, Cristina Monti inspires her readers by bringing style, music and joy. Everything beautiful comes to life on her personal blog THE BOHO FLOW.
With THE BOHO FLOW, she’s creating an image that not only inspires young women around the world but empowers them while inciting just the right amount of confidence.  She’s driven to enrich the vision of her following by building a positive unified welcoming platform.  Every look fashioned by THE BOHO FLOW is built by a strong influential team to create the highest quality images.
Besides her love for everything she believes to be beautiful, Cristina has an insatiable passion for design & travelling.
She’s collaborating with style influencers to give her readers the most stimulating seasonal outfits, styles and trends.


What Inspired Cristina’s Look: For most of us that don’t live in endless summer weather, Fall has officially arrived. It’s always so important to bundle up within the first couple of weeks of transitional weather to avoid getting sick. Here, I put together the perfect Fall ensemble that will surely keep anyone warm and stylish. When layering it’s always very important to wear similar colour tones. Grey’s, blacks, taupe and camel are really the “IT” colours of the season.
In this particular look, what truly brings it all together is this beautiful and warm American Eagle plaid sweater, which is conveniently on point with this season’s trending colour palette. After years of searching, I’m so happy to have finally found the perfect plaid sweater. It’s definitely a closet staple, its achromatic colours can simply never run out of style, plus its warm, cozy and so stylish. It can be worn as a light jacket to wear over a pretty dress or even just a simple date night to a diner followed by a late movie. I paired the look with a light grey pant, to really make the sweater pop and completed it with a classic black bootie.
Wishing you all a lovely week!
With love,

Real Talk With Katie Berger, Swim Buyer

It may be getting colder outside, but our buyers are already thinking spring! Get REAL with Katie Berger, #AerieSWIM Buyer! Read on to learn more about how she helps to plan Aerie’s line each season, her forecast for spring swim and what #AerieREAL means to her.

Real Talk With Katie Berger, Swim Buyer

What are the responsibilities of a buyer? 
A buyer is responsible for strategizing the number of styles we can have in the store and online, along with the types of silhouettes and fits we would like to offer. Buyers work hand-in-hand with a design team that is specific to swim (though they dabble in other areas as well), who designs into our style requests. We then collectively build an assortment that we believe our customer will have to have in her closet (or swim drawer!).

Buyers track the sales trends of the business from week-to-week (and on occasion, day-to-day) to give us insight for future deliveries – if the customer doesn’t love it today, will she love something similar in a few months? A lot of the job comes from instinct, and knowing what your sales history tells you along with new trends you see coming our way! This job uses both sides of the brain… and I LOVE it!

What trends are you forecasting for swim in ’16?
We are still in love with strappy swim, but we also LOVE the 70’s vibes in swim – ruffles and crochet, one-pieces, crops and teeny tiny bottoms. I want to wear a one-piece with AEO denim shorts, head to the beach, and be ready for dinner in a snap!

We can’t WAIT for swim! Let’s talk about our current collection…what’s your favorite item for Holiday?
I love the fun accessories, including our gifting ‘grab and go’ collection! Great for gifting your friends, sisters or yourself! But really the bralettes are GORGEOUS. The laces are so feminine and the stylings are so great for any day of the week. I already bought 5 of them! And wait until you see the PJ pants…they are so cozy and cute! My Christmas morning look = aerie PJ’s.

Are you an early riser or a night owl?
Neither?! I can get up consistently early on the weekends, but why can’t I get up during the week? I could say I’m definitely a napper!

What is your favorite city that you’ve either traveled to or want to travel to?
In February I went to Tulum in Mexico, and I have to say it is easily my favorite place I’ve ever been. The relaxed, non-commercial vibe is perfect for a getaway in the sunshine. We stayed at the Hotel Mezzanine, where they brought you coffee to your door every morning, and you could take the basket out to a hammock and enjoy your coffee while looking at the ocean. I have never been so relaxed in my life! I loved it so much, I’m going back in December. Next stop, I’m thinking Iceland! Have you seen the pictures of that island? It looks so beautiful.

We’re so jealous! That sounds amazing. What’s 1 item you can’t live without?
Chapstick (and Spotify). Oh, and actually a hair tie. Yep, definitely a hair tie too.

What does #AerieREAL mean to you?
I think this can mean so many different things to different girls. For me it means being and loving yourself and not apologizing for it. We recently talked as a buying team about how girls apologize constantly when speaking their minds, and I think that’s part of what this is about – learning how to stop apologizing for who you are or what you think and embracing and owning it!

We love that! Thank you Katie for sitting down with us!

Tune in to our Snapchat today (handle: aerie) as Katie gives us a behind-the-scenes look at her day at Aerie!

How To Wear Flex Cafe Denim With Blue Collar Prep

You may be familiar with our Men’s Flex Denim. It moves with you, ensuring comfort and quality aren’t compromised. What you may not have known is that we’ve taken our revolutionary high performance stretch even further by making it with recycled coffee grounds. Eric from Blue Collar Prep styled our Men’s Slim Straight Active Flex / Cafe Jean with an “edge meets comfort” vibe. Get to know Eric and the inspiration behind his #AEOSTYLE below.

Meet Eric: I’m Eric! I’m a NY electrician with a love for fashion & shopping more than my wife lol. My blog and instagram accounts let me showcase my interests that I can’t do on the 9 to 5. My style is more on the casual side, but I love exploring all areas of fashion and try to keep my looks versatile. I’ve got an adorable son Nate who keeps me on my toes, so it’s important for me to stay comfortable but show that dad’s can still have swag and be stylish!


What Inspired Eric’s Look: Being that it’s flannel season, I find myself wearing plaid button downs a lot. To switch it up I layered mine over a striped tee with my black leather jacket. Mixing different patterns gives any outfit that little bit of edge that I like. This kind of style goes well with a good pair of jeans with that broken-in denim look! I really dig these because the flex denim makes it feel like you’re wearing sweatpants, without compromising style. I’m a big fan of cuffing my pants – no matter the style…jogger, skinny, slim fit, cargo, I always seem to go with a cuff. I also always like to accessorize any outfit where I can to add a couple extra details!
