White Chocolate Candy Corn Cookies

White Chocolate Candy Corn Cookies

I love love love candy corn! I feel like one of the elves on the movie “Elf” with their four main food groups (candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup). If I leave candy corn out on the counter I will eat them all. Would you believe me if I said my twin sister is worse than I am when it comes to candy corn?

After making Pumpkin Treats I couldn’t get over the yummy flavor of candy corn and white chocolate together. I decided to make a cookie with these two flavors and they are SO good. And the dough is seriously out of this world. I purposely didn’t use all the dough so I could just eat it out of the bowl with a spoon! It’s delicious.

White Chocolate Candy Corn Cookies


  • 1 c. butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 c. white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 c. candy corn
  • 2 3/4 c. flour
  • 1 small box vanilla instant pudding


  1. Preheat the oven to 375ยฐ.
  2. Cream together butter and both sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine baking soda, salt, pudding, and flour. Whisk together then slowly add to the butter mixture.
  4. Add candy corn and white chocolate chips to the dough. Mix with a wooden spoon. Cover the dough and place in the fridge.
  5. Use a small cookie scoop or a spoon to form dough into balls, keeping any exposed candy corn on the bottom of the dough ball covered with dough so it doesn't melt all over the cookie sheet.
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes on a greased cookie sheet.

    These were actually one of my ideas when I was trying to come up with my round-up post, but my husband was convinced that the candy corn would melt away. ๐Ÿ˜› Shows what he knows.They look delicious!

    I have all the ingredients and I’m ready to make these, but I have a general question about baking cookies: Can I always put parchment paper on the cookie sheet, or does the recipe need to call for it? Thanks. By the way, I found your site through sixsistersstuff.

    Just made these cookies. I followed the directions exactly and they look nothing like the picture. Candy corn melt at high temps, no getting around that. They taste good, but I won’t make them again. I advise to rethink making them and avoid disappointment.

      Hi Michelle! I’m sorry that your cookies didn’t turn out. My first pan I had a melted candy corn mess all over because the exposed candy corn on the bottom of the dough balls got too hot. You can avoid that by making sure you can’t see any candy corn on the bottom of the dough ball when you put it on the pan. Also, some ovens vary with how hot they get on certain temperatures. Sometimes 375 is more like 400, for example. I’m sorry again that the cookies didn’t work for you!!

      I’m sorry Jeanie! Those candy corns can get a little crazy against a hot pan. If you try this recipe again, just make sure the dough is covering the candy corn on the bottom of the dough ball and you should be fine. I found this out the hard way, too!

    worst recipe ever. candy corn just melted to pan and ruined all the cookies. probably better if you make dough put on pan and hand put candy corn on top of cookies and lower the temperature. but horrible just horrible just ruined a bunch of ingredients.

      James, I’m so sorry the recipe didn’t work out for you! The cookies can be a mess if you don’t keep the candy corn off the hot pan, as explained in the directions. That candy corn can be tricky with heat!

    I just made these today and they turned out great I didn’t mixed in the candy corn after reading several negative comments about them melting all over the place. I just put them in after taking them out of the oven. Three candy corns were enough. The cookies are sweet enough without extra candies. I was able to make 42 regular sized cookies… Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I bake on a Sil-Eco mat and NOTHING sticks to it. When I made these it was super easy to get the cookies off the rubber mat even though the melted candy corn was runny.
