Cookies & Scream Chocolate Cookies

Sunday, October 28, 2018

Target's holiday section always gets me.  From the cute decor items to fun seasonal food and goodies, it's just such a fun area to explore and get inspired by.  A few weeks ago I was walking up and down the aisles and spotted some really fun M&M's that I thought would make for a fun spooky cookie this time of year.

Available for a limited time only, Cookies & Scream M&M's are cookies and cream flavored Halloween candies.  They are dark and white chocolate flavored and boy are they good!

These fun Halloween themed cookies have a delicious chocolate dough that creates a really nice base for the M&M's and the sprinkles add a little texture and a really fun pop of color!

Cookies & Screen Chocolate Cookies
{Yields: about 3 dozen}

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
1 8oz. package of M&M's Cookies & Scream Halloween Candy
1/2 cup multi-colored sprinkles

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees then line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.

Using a stand mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until well blended.  Scrap down the sides of the bowl as needed.  Add the two eggs and beat well.

In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and Kosher salt.  Then gradually blend the flour mixture into the butter mixture and blend well.  Once combined, stir in by hand the M&M's and multi-colored sprinkles.

Using a cookie scoop, place well-rounded teaspoons onto your prepared cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies are set.  Make sure to not over bake!  Allow the cookies to cool slightly on the sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely before eating.

These cookies will stay fresh for about a week if covered tightly and stored at room temperature.  Enjoy!
