Of course this video has nothing to do with these fabulous cookies, but I saw it yesterday and couldn’t stop laughing.
Here you go.
Okay, back to these cookies.
Big, crunchy cookies filled with chocolate chips and candy corn. The candy corn gets all melty and delicious and gives the cookies a really different flavor. Very sweet as in ‘awesome’.
And there is this cornflake crunch in the cookies that is brilliant. I could have eaten the tray of that crunch all by itself. Salty and sweet and crunchy. Really good. I’m going to try putting it into other cookies in the future.

Candy Corn Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
6 oz unsalted butter, softened
1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 batch cornflake crunch (recipe follows)
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips (Next time I will use about 1 cup regular size chocolate chips. I thought the minis got lost here.)
1 cup candy corn
1. In a small bowl whisk together the first four ingredients and set aside.
2. In a stand mixer beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla, then turn the mixer to low and beat in the dry ingredients. At very low speed stir in the cornflake crunch, chocolate chips and candy corn.
3. Cover the dough and chill for at least 4 hours.
4. Preheat the oven to 375℉. Line cookie sheets with parchment.

I was trying to think of some corny songs that are cool, but I drew a blank. Anyone?
How about this to ramp up your blood sugar? (or your blood pressure)
I actually own this next song. My cool quotient has dropped waaaay down with that admission.
C’mon sing along with me. It’s really (really, really) corny, but a little fun.
