Easy Tie-Dyed Candy Corn White Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s finally time for all things Halloween! I know Hobby Lobby has had their Halloween stuff out since March, but we don’t start Halloween on Plain Chicken until October. LOL!

Today I am sharing these super cute Candy Corn White Chocolate Chip Cookies. Aren’t they festive?!?!?! The best part is that the cookies themselves are ridiculously good. I mean really, really good. I had zero self control around these cookies. ZERO! I ate a ton of these cookies. I had to give most of them away to keep myself from eating them.

How to Make Candy Corn White Chocolate Chip Cookies

To make the festive candy corn colors, I divided the dough into three equal parts. I left one part plain and dyed the other two parts orange and yellow with gel food coloring. I got the gel food colors at Hobby Lobby. They are back in the cake decorating section. They are about $2 per color. Just keep adding color until you get the desired vibrance. I dyed the dough and then stirred in the white chocolate chips. I didn’t want the chips to get chunked up by the mixer while mixing in the food coloring.

Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • This recipe uses shortening. I know I’m going to get tons of questions about this. NO,  I have not made these with butter. If you choose to substitute butter for the shortening, it will totally change the texture of the cookie. I LOVED the cookie just the way it was. I wouldn’t change it, but you can do anything you wish in your kitchen.
  • If you aren’t a fan of white chocolate chips, you can use regular chocolate chips. I just used white chocolate chips to keep with the candy corn theme. You can also just make the cookies and not color the dough.
  • Can Chocolate Chip Cookies be made in advance? Yes! You can make the dough ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight.
  • Can Chocolate Chip Cookies be frozen? Yes! You can freeze the cookies baked or unbaked.
    • To freeze the cookie dough unbaked, scoop the dough into balls and freeze. After frozen, transfer the cookie dough into a freezer bag and store. You can bake the cookie dough frozen. Just add a few minutes to the cooking time.
    • To freeze the baked cookies, let the cookies thaw completely and place them in a freezer bag. Store in the refrigerator. Thaw and enjoy.

  1. I did make them but ended up making them immediately, making more now and refrigerating till tomorrow, I think they will be fine, and BTW they came out great and were a big hit, that's why now I have to make more 2 days before Halloween. Thanks for such an easy and great recipe, and it is really easy.

    1. Absolutely!! I suggest making the dough into balls and freezing it until you are ready to bake. Either thaw the dough or add a couple of minutes to the baking time.
