Big Black Dog: Candy Corn Kiss Cookies

October 6, 2009

Candy Corn Kiss Cookies


I love Halloween! Even when I was a kid Halloween was my favorite holiday. It was so much fun planning what we were going to wear and my Mom and Dad always made our costumes. I think they enjoyed Halloween even more then us kids! But the most fun was the actual Trick or Treating! I loved it!

We live on acreage now and have a very long driveway so no Trick or Treaters come to our house and I miss them. But that does not stop my fun..no sir! And this year I am starting early. I have plans for several Halloween treats so stay tuned!

One of my twitter buddies, Tracy of Sugar Crafter, made the cutest Halloween Cookies this year! So I decided to make my own version and used our family Peanut Butter Cookie recipe, chopped peanuts and a bag of Hershey's Candy Corn Kisses. Although the Candy Corn Kisses don't taste exactly like Candy Corn they are close enough for me and I love how the Corn Kisses melt in your mouth! You can find the Candy Corn Kisses at Target with the other Halloween Candies.

Our Peanut Butter Cookie recipe is a large recipe but it's easily cut in half. I usually use butter in cookies except for some recipes and this recipe is one. If you use butter in this recipe your cookie will be pretty flat, still chewy and delicious but flat. Because I wanted a more substantial cookie I used a good quality margarine and the cookies were perfect.

Peanut Butter Cookies
Recipe adapted from my Mom who adapted it from Aunt Phyllis

1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. peanut butter
1 c. shortening (I used a good quality margarine)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

For the Candy Corn Kiss Cookies:
1/2 c. chopped salted peanuts
1 bag Hershey's Candy Corn Kisses

Mix all ingredients. Roll a tsp or a bit more of dough into a small ball, drop on to cookie sheet and crisscross with fork. Bake at 350 degrees until slightly brown on bottom.

Candy Corn Kiss Cookies:
Mix dough as directed above. Roll a well-rounded tsp of dough into a small ball and roll in chopped peanuts. Drop on to a parchment lined baking sheet and press with the bottom of a glass. Bake at 350 degrees until just slightly brown on the bottom.

Remove cookies and cool. Press 1 Candy Corn Kiss in the middle of each cookie.



Of course I had to make Mr. Tastebud's some cookies too but sans the Candy Corn Kiss! But I gave him some real kisses instead!

I really thought I'd make these cookies until I saw the cartoon at the end! Ugh!
Still, I'll probably bring some of these candy corn kisses home with me, for the village children who love to come to our house first because we always have "American" Halloween treats, which other folks around here don't have.
Thanks for visiting Normandy, yesterday.

What wonderful cookies. We don't get any trick or treaters anymore either.

Happy Halloween!

I, too, love Halloween! We don't get any trick or treaters either because we live down a long drive. I miss them, but it has been that way for the past 21 years! The cookies are a great idea.

How cute! I haven't seen the candy corn kisses yet. We don't get trick-or-treaters either, and I miss seeing the costumes and handing out the candy.

*laughs* I think I lost my appetite with that cartoon. It was very funny though.
My son will love those cookies.

Oh, these look so wonderful! I'll have to be on the lookout for those kisses. I agree that rural living usually means no trick-or-treaters. I make sure to load the church kids up with goodies though.

Blessings!
