Everyone has a fairly bog standard go-to recipe. Mine is chocolate chip cookies. They’re incredibly easy to make and can be thrown together in about 20 minutes for a last minute occasion or a quick baked good fix. And a great way to make them festive for any holiday is to throw in some festive M&Ms (the green and red ones for Christmas, most notably.) But recently, M&M have come up with a Candy Corn M&M. I really liked it – I’m a big white chocolate fan and there’s definitely a taste of white chocolate and candy corn. So I decided to whip up a batch of cookies and throw in some Candy Corn M&Ms and a few mini-white chocolate chips.
3/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cups light brown sugar
113g unsalted butter
2 eggs (unpictured)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 1/4 cups plain flour
2 cups candy corn M&Ms (or I made it 1 1/2 cups candy corn M&Ms and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips)
Cream together the butter and sugar. Mix in the two eggs and add in 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Sift in the 1/2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda and the plain flour, 1/4 cup at a time. This recipe does get very dry (I’ve burned out a boyfriend’s hand mixer before), so just keep that in mind that you’ll want to be really strong to finish the last 1/4 cup!
Add in the candy corn M&Ms and white chocolate chips.
Bake at 190C for about 8 minutes. You want it to become a nice light golden brown. Take them out and enjoy this nice candy corn-ish Halloween treat!
