Candy Corn Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
This Candy Corn Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake is perfect for a Halloween party or for baking with your kids. It’s easy to make, festive and who doesn’t like a giant chocolate cookie?
If it was ok to hand out homemade things to trick or treaters, I might even hand out slices of this cookie cake. I personally think it’d be much more fun than a 10th little bag of skittles. But alas, homemade things probably would be regarded quite skeptically and not eaten, unless it was a neighbor that knew me.
And I get it – if I had kids and some lady was giving out something and I didn’t know what was in it, I probably wouldn’t want them to eat it either. The fact is, there are some weird people out there who do not so nice things. Unfortunate, but true. Fortunately, I can share this recipe with you and you can make it! Yay!
Truth be told, we aren’t huge Halloween people right now. I liked it as a kid. My younger brother and I would always barter with each other for our favorites. If we got something we didn’t like and the other liked it, we had a very refined trading system. 😉
And I imagine once we have kids, Halloween will be fun again, but for now it’d be just another reason to spend money on something like a costume. And if I were one of those super clever people that came up with awesome costume ideas, I might do it. But I’m not.
Instead, Jessie busts out her super girl costume and we hand out candy to the neighborhood kids. I do like giving candy to the kids. When it comes to sweets, I’m basically a big kid. I’ll gladly let you grab a handful (or two as long as I have enough candy) and pick out your favorites. I remember wanting to do that as a kid very well.
I usually tell a couple kids in our cul-de-sac to come by at the end of the night and get the rest of our candy. I just don’t need it sitting around. I have things like this cookie cake that I’m already feasting on. 🙂
Speaking of the cookie cake – how do you feel about candy corn? Personally I’m a fan. It’s like compacted sugar. Why wouldn’t I be a fan? I also love the little pumpkin versions of candy corn. I actually think I like the pumpkins better, but they were a little large for putting in a cookie.
The cookie itself is a moist, chewy, super chocolatey cookie. It’s filled with chocolate chunks (you could also use chocolate chips) and candy corn. The candy corn is definitely chewy. I like the texture of it in the cookie, but you could leave it out and just decorate the cookie with it if you prefer. Either way it’ll be delicious and festive!
A note about cooking the cookie – it’ll be done after about 18-20 minutes of baking. It’ll probably still look a little undone in the center, and should be a little jiggly. But it’ll continue to bake and firm up as it cools. Trust me. You don’t want to cook it even longer and then end up with a dry cookie.
