Dark Chocolate Halloween Cookies

I just really love fall and everything that it brings. One of my favorite things in October is Halloween. We love to celebrate all month long with treats, decorations and pumpkin patches. Dark Chocolate Halloween Cookies are festive and so quick and easy to whip up!


Preheat the oven to 350. In a medium mixing bowl (or the bowl of your stand mixer), add the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar.


Beat to combine and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat again until very light and fluffy, another 1 minute.


Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt to the bowl and mix until well combined. Stir in 1 cup of the M&M candies and reserve the other half. Refrigerate the dough for 30-60 minutes.


Place a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.


Place a few M&M candies on top of each piece of cookie dough do and lightly press them into the dough. Bake the cookies for 8-11 minutes.


1. Let the cookies rest of on the baking sheet for 3 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
