Description

After having a peanut and candy corn mix that tasted fantastic, I decided to make a cookie version! Candy corns melt in the middle, creating a nougat-like center. It’s a great salty/sweet combo!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Butter
  • ½ cups Peanut Butter
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1-¼ cup Sifted Flour
  • ¾ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Peanuts
  • ¾ cups Candy Corn Candies

Preparation

1. Heat oven to 325°F.

2. Cream together butter, peanut butter and both sugars with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

3. Add egg and vanilla and mix until fully incorporated.

4. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt.

5. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, stirring until blended. Stir in peanuts.

6. Form 1-inch balls of dough, inserting one or two candy corns into the center of each. Make sure dough completely covers the candy on all sides. Place on baking sheet and slightly flatten.

7. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes.

8. Remove from oven and immediately press a few candy corns into the top of each cookie. Let cool several minutes (baking sheet should be cool enough to touch). Carefully transfer cookies to wire rack to cool completely.

Tasty cookies, and a great way to use up leftover candy corn. The candy corn in the middle really does create kind of nougat-y center that makes these cookies a lot of fun. Just make sure you heed the warning to completely cover the candy corn with the cookie dough.

The next time I make these, I think I will omit the peanuts and substitute crunchy peanut butter instead.
