I have a love-hate relationship with candy corn. I hate to love it, that is. I like candy corn so much I made these candy corn cookies. I know it’s the “cheap candy,” that people dole out at Halloween, but I keep it around in a pumpkin jar in the fall for a tiny sweet treat at home. We don’t get trick or treaters at our house so I have no excuse to buy it.
Love it or hate it, candy corn is a fall staple. I decided to do something with it instead of just having it in a jar on the counter.
So why not add some more sugar!!! These are perfect sweet and soft Halloween cookies, or a fall cookie. I break out the candy corns in early September and restock them through Halloween.
Here’s a recipe for an even sweeter candy corn – candy corn cookies – a candy corn sugar cookie!
Candy Corn Cookies Ingredients
- Baking soda
- Baking powder
- Vanilla extract
- Candy corns
- Caramel chips
It’s a moist, chewy sugar cookie that you already love, but I added the color of the candy corn, AND this recipe use caramel chips to add another fall flavor.
Mix the ingredients in the recipe and cook for 8-10 minutes. Be sure to watch the oven so you don’t overcook. They’ll be slightly golden when done.
Take the sugar cookies out of the oven before they are done and let them finish cooking on the baking sheet.
And will make a fun treat for a Halloween or fall party.
