I know I have been crazy with Candy Corns but this M&M’s Candy Corn Cookie recipe is so yummy I couldn’t resist sharing it with you. I discovered that M&M’s now has candy corn flavor pieces. I thought that these would be wonderful to make an M&M Candy Corn Cookie recipe. I’m sure everyone now knows how much we like candy corn at my house and we certainly like cookies. I love holiday themed M&M’s (patiently waiting for the Christmas ones to be released) they can always dress up a standard cookie, candy or cake. Well they can take a simple recipe and make it look and taste great.
M&M’s Candy Corn Cookies
My son Quentin the candy corn addict received quite the surprise when you took a bit into these yummy cookies. He assumed the M&m’s were just the traditional chocolate filled M&M’s, but found out the flavor of these ones was that of a candy corn. I had picked up a few bags of these tasty M&M’s and made up these basic and yummy cookies. The Candy Corn M&M’s really set the cookie with a nice fall flavor. If you are looking to do some baking for the fall and Halloween season give these M&M’s Candy Corn cookies a try.
