Big Chocolate Chip Cookies Decorated with Candy Corn and m&m's


I found this fun recipe on the baking website Crazy for Crust. I adore this baking blog - it had so many fun ideas.

Ingredients:

1 stick butter, melted

1/4 cup sugar

2/3 cup brown sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla 

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 cups flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 1/4 cups chocolate chips, divided

1 teaspoon shortening

Directions:

Line a 9 inch round cake pan with foil and use a cooking spray to coat the foil.

Pour the melted butter and both sugars into a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment. Beat on low until everything is combined. Let the mixture cool for a few minutes.

Mix in the egg and vanilla - mix until combined.

Mix in the dry ingredients - baking soda, flour and salt.  remove the bowl from the mixer once everything is combined and stir in 1 1/4 cup of chocolate chips.

Press the mixture into the prepared pan.


Chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.

Tic Tock it has been two hours. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the cookie for 20 minutes.


Let the cookie cool for 20 minutes. Remove the cookie from the pan using the foil. Then melt 1 cup of chocolate chips with the teaspoon of shortening.


Spread the melted chocolate over the cookie and decorate with candy corn and m&m's. Let the cookie sit on the counter for an hour. Then chill in the fridge for 1 /2 hour.


Cut the cookie into wedges to serve.


My son and husband loved this cookie! It can be made for any holiday - just by changing the candy colors!

Happy Halloween! I hope that everyone has a fun night!
