  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter (12 tablespoons) softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups candy corn
  • 1 cup peanuts optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the sugars, butter and eggs. Mix on medium speed until creamy. Gradually add the flour mixture and mix until combined.
  • Fold in the candy corn and peanuts (if using). Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool and serve!


You can skip folding in the candy corn and peanuts and just add them to the top of the cookie dough.
Do not allow the candy corn pieces to touch the baking pan – if you lift the ball of dough up and a piece is sticking out, then push it up into the ball of dough so it doesn’t melt and burn.
