Halloween cookies

I colored the cookie dough with purple food coloring to accentuate the Halloweeny look, which you can omit if you prefer – the brookies will taste just as delicious.

What happens when a cookie meets a brownie meets a bunch of M&Ms around October? Halloween brookies with candy, of course! Expect to bite simultaneously into cake and biscuits as the cookie dough is crunchy, while the brownie portion has a soft and cakey texture. If preferred, omit the food coloring and replace the mini M&Ms with chocolate chips or other candy.

Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

For the cookie dough

  • 115 g (1/2 cup) shortening, at room temperature
  • 100 g (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 200 g (1 1/2 cups) all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp purple gel paste food colouring
  • 40 g (1/4 cup) mini M&Ms

For the brownie dough

  • 90 g (1/2 cup) shortening, at room temperature
  • 100 g (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 60 g (1/2 cup) all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 25 g (1/4 cup) unprocessed cocoa, sifted
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

For decorating

  • melted white chocolate or candy melts
  • purple and black hundreds and thousands (nonpareils)

Instructions

  1. Prep work. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F / gas mark 4). Line two baking trays (sheets) with greaseproof (wax) paper, baking (parchment) paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. Mix the cookie dough. In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening and sugar with a hand-held or stand mixer. Add the egg white and food coloring and mix until well blended. Add the flour and baking powder and mix until blended. Fold in the M&Ms and stir to combine. Set aside.
  3. Make the brownie dough. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat the shortening and sugar until fluffy. Stir in the egg yolk and mix to combine. Add the flour, cocoa, and baking powder and mix to blend.
  4. Bake the brookies. Take one tablespoon of the cookie dough and half a tablespoon of brownie dough and gently press both doughs into a ball. Place the dough balls on the prepared baking tray (sheet), spacing the 5 cm (2 in) apart. Gently flatten the dough balls. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the tray (sheet) from the oven and let the cookies cool on a wire rack.
  5. Decorate the brookies. Transfer the melted white chocolate or candy melts into a disposable piping bag. Snip off the very tip of the piping bag and pipe lines on 1/3 third of each brookie. Sprinkle with hundreds and thousands (nonpareils) and allow the chocolate to set before serving or packaging
