Halloween Chocolate Chip Cookies

HALLOWEEN Chocolate Chip Cookies - easy, festive and delicious!

One of my favorite things to do is to go to the store and find inspiration for upcoming crafts, decor ideas and recipes. I usually don’t go to the store just for inspiration but are always on the look out for items to create with. The hubby think it’s a little crazy, but I can’t help myself anymore. 🙂

You better believe then that when I saw some Halloween Chocolate Chips from Nestle I had to buy some. I mean, how could I not use them to make some Halloween Chocolate Chip cookies, right?! Lily was super excited as well and with no school on Monday she asked if she could have some friends over to play and to make cookies. I thought that it sounded like a great idea!

Although, I absolutely love the cookie recipe I use ALL the time, I thought I’d change things up and try a new one. My sister suggested I try using this one, so I did.

The cookies tasted absolutely delicious. The recipe claims that they are the perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie. I don’t know if I agree with that 100% just because I still love my go-to cookie recipe, but they were pretty darn close to being there. The recipe requires that you chill the dough so I feel like it may be a little more work than the recipe I always use, but like I said, they ended up tasting SO yummy!

I found these chocolate chips at Target with the baking items in the Halloween section.

If you are unable to find and still want to use them I also found them on Amazon:

Since the dough had to be chilled, I went ahead and used my Cookie Scoop
(I always use my scoop and never roll by hand) and placed them all on a wax paper-lined jelly roll pan. It made 3 dozen exactly and I would just take it out and place a dozen scoops onto a greased cookie sheet as I went.

The kids absolutely LOVED the cookies! The chips don’t taste any different from semi-sweet and white chocolate chips, but are simply more festive. My only complaint about the chips was that they were a tad melted and stuck together in the package but that’s how they were at the store. I’m guessing it’s due to the fact that it’s HOT in Houston. 😉

    1. Thank you, Stephanie! They were SO yummy and easy to make. You should give them a try. I have a feeling we’ll be making them again soon since they were so good!

    1. Thank you, Laura! Bummer they don’t carry it in the UK. I would consider contacting Nestle and ask if they know of any distributors of those chips close to you. They may be able to help out. 🙂
