Print Recipe


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups candy coated chocolate, Halloween themed - Smarties or M&Ms work great!
  • 1/2 cup chocolate sauce


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 10-inch skillet liberally with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, using a hand-held mixer, blend together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla.  Beat into the butter and sugar mixture.
  • Add the flour, salt, and baking soda.  Beat until the flour has been incorporated.
  • Stir two cups of the candy coated chocolate into the cookie dough.  
  • Transfer the dough to the skillet and gently press into the pan to help even out the dough.  Don't concern yourself with evening out the top of the dough.  A rustic look is best.
  • Top the cookie with the remaining candy coated chocolates and bake for 35 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow cookie to cool for 10 minutes before cutting.  
  • You can eat the cookie warm, or let it rest until completely cooled like in the photos.  Drizzle with chocolate sauce, top with ice cream, more chocolate sauce, and possibly caramel sauce too.
