Jen with 100 Directions is back again this month! This time she is sharing her candy corn cookies in a jar! This is great for Halloween, fall, or heck….anytime of the year! If you love candy corn, this one is for you!
Give me a bag of candy corn and I will be your BFF forever! (And so will my dentist!). Instead of just snacking on all the candy corn this year, I thought it would be fun to experiment and try my hand at a few recipes. I’m a big fan of cake mix cookies and I know Angie loves jar gifts, so I thought I’d combine the two and see what I could come up with. So, today I have candy corn cookies in a jar – YAY! (Plus a free printable of course).
Candy Corn Cookies in a Jar
- Yellow Cake Mix – half the box
- 1 egg
- 2 TBS oil
- 2 TBS water
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1/4 candy corn – chopped
- Orange sugar sprinkles
- Pint sized Mason Jar
- Pinch of salt
You can change up the ingredients however you like, you don’t need to include all the candy items if you don’t want. Because these cookies use a pre-made cake mix, they are really sweet. You can make the same cookie treat with a basic sugar cookie recipe, decreasing the sugar a bit.
To make the jar gift
Omit the web ingredients (egg, oil and water). and simply layer all of the dry ingredients into the jar. I layered in this order: chocolate chips, cake mix, orange sprinkles, cake mix, chocolate chips, cake mix, candy corn.
To make the cookies
- Pour all the dry ingredients into a bowl.
- Mix in the wet ingredients and stir together.
- Spoon the mixture onto a cookie sheet.
- Bake for 8-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
Allow to cool before serving. Makes about 1 dozen.
You can decorate your cookie jar gift with a cute gift tag using my candy corn Halloween accents printable (it’s free!).
I hope you love these cookies too. I say, any excuse to sneak in more candy corn, is a must!
