Cake Mix Cookies with Candy Corn M&Ms

With only a couple of days until Halloween, I thought I’d try to squeeze in one last trick-or-treat inspired dessert. When an MBA reader emailed me regarding Cake Mix Cookies, I knew exactly what I’d whip together to share with you. And they just so happen to be studded with Candy Corn M&Ms!

I honestly don’t know how Candy Corn M&Ms were able to steer off my radar for as long as they did, I mean – hello – I am a self-professed candy corn addict and I’m obsessed with everything that supposedly tastes like it. Case in point – Candy Corn Oreos.

A couple of weeks ago, I happened upon a festive display of Candy Corn M&Ms at Target and I was a little more excited than I care to admit publicly – yes, I have issues – we know this. Needless to say, I chucked a couple of bags of them into my Target cart.

Like the Candy Corn Oreos, the M&Ms aren’t overwhelming candy corny. I think Amber pretty much hit the nail on the head when she said they reminded her of Cotton Candy. They totally do and yes, in case you didn’t already guess – I also have a thing for cotton candy, so these are a total win in my book!

I used a simple recipe for Vanilla Cake Mix Cookies, tossed in a couple of tablespoons of Halloween sprinkles and finished the cookies off with a few Candy Corn M&Ms. Easy peasy! If cake mix isn’t your thing – no worries, just jazz up your favorite soft sugar cookie with the addition of sprinkles and M&Ms and you’ll have a delicious from scratch version of this recipe.

Regardless of the route you choose to take with this recipe, I hope these cute Cake Mix Cookies with Candy Corn M&Ms make your Halloween extra spooktacular!

Cake Mix Cookies

October 29th, 2012

Yield: about 36 cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time:

Ingredients:

1 box Duncan Hines French Vanilla Cake Mix
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons sprinkles (mine were orange, yellow and white)
Candy Corn M&Ms

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, combine dry cake mix, eggs and oil. Beat on medium speed until mixture is well combined. Mix in sprinkles.

3. Use a small cookie scoop (2 teaspoons) to drop dough onto prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12.

4. Remove cookie sheet from oven and gently press a few Candy Corn M&Ms into the tops of each cookie. Be careful because the cookies and pan will be quite hot. Allow cookies to cool on pan for about 5 minutes before removing them to a cooling rack.

Notes:

- Cookies are best served the day they are made; however, cooled cookies will keep in a sealed container at room temp for up to two days.
