Halloween Chocolate Cookies

Updated: Jun 6


I saw these Reece's pieces chocolates in my local supermarket and thought they would be great to put in cookies for Halloween.


These are a slightly altered version of my chocolate chip cookies with the addition of Reece's pieces.




They are soft in the middle and crunchy around the edges and are nice and chocolatey with the hit of peanuts from the sweets.


To start making these cookies preheat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade (160 fan) Gas mark 4 and line two baking trays with parchment.


In a stand mixer beat the butter, caster sugar and light brown sugar until light and fluffy.



Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix again until incorporated.



Add the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt until a soft dough has formed.



Form into 12 equal balls and place on the baking trays. These cookies do spread a lot so don’t place them too closely together. You will need to bake several batches.



Bake for 6 minutes then add a few Reece's pieces on each cookie.


Put them back in the oven and bake again for another 8 minutes.



Transfer to a wire rack after a few minutes to cool completely.

Sarah’s extra slice......

You could make these using smarties if you don't like peanuts.

Do not bake longer than 14 minutes the cookies will set as they cool.
