Candy Corn Cookies

Ever have so much to do that you just have to ignore it all and bake something??

Well, the need to bake doesn't strike me very often, but today I needed a cookie! My son was just informed that his Army ship out date was moved up to October! (Last we heard it was January) And since it's Fall, and I love candy corn, I decided to make some candy corn cookies! Why not?

Now, I'm not the greatest in the kitchen. I'm more of a scientist than a cook... I love to experiment. So I don't have a recipe for you, I just followed my twenty-year-old Betty Crocker cookbook recipe for chocolate chip cookies and put in candy corn instead of chocolate chips. But only in half the dough--my son doesn't have a lot of faith in my experimenting and doesn't care for candy corn, so I chopped up some Hershey bars and put those in the other half.

Here's what happened...
The candy corn melted--not like smooth melty chocolate, but like that red sugary candy apple coating --and stuck to the pan... Fail!

But I was able to salvage most of the cookies with only a couple minor casualties. Here are a few good ones--and they tasted pretty good too.

Do you like to experiment in the kitchen? That's how recipes are born!
And what Fall Favorite Foods do you look forward to?

Yay for Fall!

  1. I'm with the son who doesn't like candy corn. I don't stray from the classics too often. My mother was always a creative cook, but I didn't inherit that gene.

  2. I like to cook but I am not much on the creative side. Candy Corn - Caramel Corn? or something different? We buy chocolate chip cookies from the local store. They are loaded with chocolate. I am sure I could never bake anything as delicious.

  3. My kids aren't really into baked treats (I'm still not sure what's wrong with them ;) ). But I do experiment on other ends. Sometimes good and sometimes a sheer disaster.
