I love seasonal candy. It’s just so fun in the different colors, and they’re perfect for baking and for munching! I have several basic cookie recipes, and I love to add the candy for different tastes and varieties, which my kids LOVE. It’s always a fun surprise when they come home from school to cookies right out of the oven. These week when I was at the store I discovered a new kind of M&M’S…Candy Corn flavored! They’re so cute, in orange, yellow, and white, and they’re perfect for both fall and Halloween. So…I came home and put them into one of my favorite cookie recipes, and Candy Corn M&M Cookies were born!!!
This cookie dough is kind of a cross between a dough you would use for chocolate chip cookies, and a sugar cookie dough. It creates a thick, rich, and soft cookie, and paired with the M&M’s, you just can’t beat it! And the M&M’S…they taste JUST like candy corn! It’s crazy!
These would be fun packaged up for friends, neighbors, teachers, served at a fun party or gathering, or just because. I just love this fall season–these were so fun to make this week!
- 1 c. butter, unsalted
- ½ c. white sugar
- ½ c. brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 ¼ c. flour
- ¾ tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 large bag candy corn M&M’S
- Mix butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in egg. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix.
- The dough will be thick, so just keep mixing until it creates a dough consistency, then mix in the M&M’S. You could easily substitute other M&M’S too! Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool on a wire rack. Makes approx. 40 small cookies or 20 large cookies.
