Servings 17 cookies


  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons black cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar packed
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 egg yolks at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup Halloween M&M’s
  • 3 tablespoons Halloween jimmies
  • Candy eyeballs for decoration
  • Extra Halloween M&Ms and jimmies for decoration


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, black cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter, light brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg yolks and vanilla extract to the butter mixture, beating until pale and fluffy.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  • Gently fold in the Halloween M&M’s and jimmies using a rubber spatula.
  • Using a 2-tablespoon capacity cookie scoop, portion the dough into 17 balls and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Press extra M&Ms, candy eyeballs, and sprinkles onto the dough balls.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-11 minutes, then let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. (Note: Some eyeballs may melt during baking, so you may need to replace them after baking.)
