Calling all non-bakers, these cookies are for you! Do you cringe at the thought of baking? Or simply don’t have the time? Here is a simple way to make a festive Fall treat with out baking. You heard me. No baking! Just like I’m crazy for pumpkin this time of year I’m also crazy for candy corn! It’s one of those sweet treats only eaten from October to November so we might as well put it in everything! Right? With the help of some store bought ingredients these cookies come together in minutes. You’ll be shocked.
Simply take store bought sugar cookies and dip in warm chocolate. Depending on the type of cookie you bought, you may need to spread the chocolate on with a knife so the cookies don’t break. Then before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle with candy corn. Allow some time to harden, and you have a Halloween treat in no time! You didn’t think it could be that simple did you?
