BOO Candy Corn and Chocolate Chip Cookies for Halloween #SundaySupper


After having kids, I seriously love Halloween. Not so much about getting dressed up in a costume or scary things or scary movies. .  but sharing the excitement with my girls, dressing them up and handing out candy with them. My girls are young so they are not yet at the point where they can trick or treat for 3-4 hours (like I did when I was a kid). We hit like 8 houses and we’re done. They are easy like that.


The other thing I love about Halloween is baking! I love all the creative ideas I see out in the blogosphere. .  there are some pretty amazing and freakishly cute sweet treats out there, I love it!


And this year, I am baking cupcakes for my daughter’s Halloween class party so come back over here on Wednesday to see what I have in store!


Now, on to these cookies! I have never myself been to the Momofuku Milk Bar in NYC but this is the first place I’m going the next time I am there. Christina Tosi, is THE sugar genius, owner, chef there. This lady is freaking brilliant. Brilliant. She has a crack pie for crying out loud. Check out her Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook. Awesomeness in a book.


I have been wanting to try one of her recipes. .  and this week was the week! When I saw the recipe for these cookies, I knew they would be perfect! It’s not only the candy corn and chocolate chips which create this wonderful, freaking amazing cookie. .  but the Cornflake crunch. In every bite, you get chewy, crunchy, and sweet.  A little bit of my cornflake crunch kind of caramelized so it was soooo good. Freaking brilliant. Y.U.M. You have got to try these. And hit up Momofuku Milk Bar if you’re ever in NYC.


Momofuku means lucky peach. How awesome is that?


I hope you enjoy!


BOO Candy-Corn-and-Chocolate-Chip Cookies!!
Recipe makes about 18-20 cookies. Please note refrigerate time: 3 hours. It’s really important to place your cookie dough balls at least 4 inches apart when you bake them. They will expand and grow.
Recipe type: Dessert or Snack

  • 4 cups cornflakes (5 ounces), lightly crushed
  • ½ cup dry milk powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1¼ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1½ sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1¼ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Cornflake Crunch
  • ⅔ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • about a ¼ cup Reeses pieces

  2. Preheat the oven to 275° and line a baking sheet with parchment. In a large bowl, toss the cornflakes with the milk powder, sugar, salt and butter until coated. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and bake until golden and fragrant, about 20 minutes. Let the crunch cool completely.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle, beat the butter and sugars at medium- high speed until light and fluffy, 4 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. At low speed, beat in the dry ingredients, then mix in (by hand) the Cornflake Crunch, chocolate chips, candy corn and Reeses pieces. Mound ¼-cup scoops of dough 4 inches apart on 4 parchment–lined baking sheets. Flatten the cookies slightly and refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375° and position a rack in the center. Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, for 15 minutes, until browned around the edges but still a bit pale in the center. Let cool completely on the tray, then serve.

    They are beautiful! Yes, I also want to visit Momofuku Milk Bar…I heard Christina Tosi on the radio yesterday and yes, salty foods with sweets. Composte cookie?! Yes, I am there…

    It is wonderful that you can still bring homemade food to your children’s school. We here can only bring store bought foods…Have fun on Wednesday with your girls. Like you, our kids are also happy after 8 houses or so :) ~ Bea

    I never got into Halloween but ever since I had my daughter my husband has been talking about how when she is older he thinks it would be fun to get into Halloween and dressing up with her. I am not convinced about the dressing up bit but after seeing all of these fun treats I can’t wait to host a fun kids Halloween party.

      Hi Laura, yes! Halloween with kids (my opinion) is the BEST! They get so excited with everything and you can get creative with the sweet treats and other party options. . Also you get to put your kids into really cute costumes! 😛 I love seeing babies in animal costumes!

    These are adorable…I just love those little eyeballs! And I was just like that when I was a kid, I could trick-or-treat for hours on end. Just the thought of MORE candy kept me moving ;). Where I live now, you have a “set” 2-hour block where you’re allowed to trick-or-treat and that’s it, so my kids don’t have a choice but to stop. And I’ll admit, I like that.

    • hipfoodiemom

      November 1, 2012 at 5:21 pm

      oh wow! There’s a 2-hour set time block?! Where do you live? How would they enforce that?
