Candy Corn Cookies

Fall is here!  It’s time for all things Fall.  Like pumpkins and candy corn.

My daughter loves candy corn.

Loves it.

Starts asking for it months before Halloween.

So, adding candy corn to things is kind of a natural progression of celebrating Fall in our house.

I loved the idea of candy corn in cookies.  I mean, the candy is essentially made of sugar and honey – so how could it go wrong?

Turns out it can.

But don’t worry.  I got it all figured out now.

White Chocolate Chip Cookies with Candy Corn

First of all, we start with a pretty basic chocolate chip cookie recipe.

You can use a mixer to blend it all together {until adding the chips}, but I just use a spoon.

Less to wash.

And what you can see in the photo below is that I mixed in the candy corn when I stirred in the chocolate chips.

Which is where I made my first mistake.

I also was making these after baking something else and forgot to turn the oven down, but hopefully you won’t do that.  :)

So, with the oven accidentally set too high, the candy corn melted.

I had a giant, gooey mess on my hands.  But I scraped it off the pan and into a bowl and ate it like that.  It was kinda like a cookie stew.  Pretty ugly, but darned tasty.

Anyway, I adjusted the oven temp for the next batch and changed the method of adding the candy corn, because even with a lower oven temp, any candy corn that was on the bottom of the cookie stuck to the pan.

Now, you could just let it cool completely on the pan if the candy makes it stick and then try to delicately slide a thin spatula under it, but that’s a lot of work.

To solve this problem, you can simply add the candy corn to the top of the cookies after scooping the dough onto the pans.  Just press a few into the top.

But I do suggest keeping an eye on these.  Just in case.

I mean – keep an eye on them while they’re baking.  ‘Cause once they’re done, and once your family tastes them, they’ll disappear.

Orange Creamsicle Cookies

Orange Creamsicle Cookies

If you’re looking for an amazing cookie that just screams “summer,” you need to try these.

I love anything orange creamsicle related.  Including the Popsicles, of course.  And these were just so much fun to eat.

Plus, they were super simple, since I started with a box mix.

If you follow the directions on the box, they suggest adding the matching flavored icing to the cookies, but I tend to avoid icings that may not actually dry.  Too difficult to store.

So I dipped them in white chocolate instead.

And to really get the creamsicle-flavor, I also added a cup of white chocolate chips to the batter.

If you were in a bind and didn’t have the time to dip the cooled cookies in chocolate (even tho it only takes a few minutes), you still need to add in the chocolate chips.  They really send the cookies over the edge.

Above is a pic of the box mix that I used.  Picked it up at the grocery store in the cake mix aisle.

But if you can’t find it in your local store, the Pillsbury Orangesicle Premium Cookie Mix is also available online.

Here you can see the batter with the chocolate chips mixed in.

Like little gooey balls of creamsicles……

After they were baked and fully cooled, I dipped them in some melted Bright White Candy Melts (tho regular white would work, too).

It looks like I dipped the cookies in halfway, but the chocolate really only covers the top and sides – not the bottom.  I didn’t want the chocolate overpowering the orange flavor.

1 box Pillsbury Orangesicle Premium Cookie Mix
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup white or bright white Candy Melts

Make the cookie dough according the package directions.  Stir in chocolate chips and drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets.  Bake according to package directions.  Allow to cool completely.

Melt the Candy Melts in a small bowl.  Dip half of the top of each cookie into the melted chocolate and allow to set on waxed or parchment paper.  Store covered.
