Here are the ingredients that you will need in order to make this cookie pie:
- ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, super soft
- ⅓ cup sugar
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¾ cup flour
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon nonfat milk powder
- ½ teaspoons salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ cup semi sweet chocolate chips + 2 tablespoons for the top
- ½ cup fun Halloween candy, chopped to quarter size pieces or kept whole if you want + ¼ cup for the top
Here are the directions that you will need to follow in order to complete this recipe:
First, you will need to preheat the oven to 350°F. Then, place the circular ring/pan, which is at least as big as your face, on top of the baking sheet and spray the ring, pie tin or springform pan and the baking sheet. Set aside these pans for later.
The next step is to mix the wet ingredients. In a large bowl, and using a wooden spoon or sturdy spatula, mix together the butter and sugar for about 2 minutes or until they are fully combined. Now, add the egg and vanilla and stir everything until combined and fluffy, about 1 minute.
Then, in a medium bowl mix the flour, cocoa powder, milk powder, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Now you want to add that mixture to the sugar mixture, mixing until everything is just combined.
Now it’s time to fold in the ½ cup candy pieces and ¼ cup chocolate chips.
Smoosh your dough into the circle so it’s easier to spread. Using your hands, pat the dough down evenly in the pan. Next, sprinkle the ¼ cup candy pieces, and 2 tablespoons chocolate chips around the inside edge of your ring as decoration.
Now, bake the cookie for 18 to 20 minutes. Double check as you bake since this cookie is already dark brown, and it’s tricky to tell by sight when they’re ready to take out of the oven or if it’s burning. Then remove from the oven and cool completely on the baking sheet (about 25 minutes) before removing it from the pan or cutting into it. Store on a plate, wrapped well in plastic for up to a week.
