About this Recipe

These cookies are a fun Halloween treat. They are loaded with various Halloween candies. Dutch-processed cocoa powder gives these cookies deep chocolate flavor, while oats give them a great chewy texture. This recipe includes M&Ms®, Kit Kats® and candy corn, but feel free to use whatever Halloween candy you like!


Prep cookie dough

  • Pro Tip: Leave butter and eggs at room temperature for 1 hour before beginning. This will soften butter for easy mixing and ensure more even distribution of eggs in the dough.
  • In medium bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  • In bowl of stand mixer with paddle attachment or in large bowl with wooden spoon, combine butter and sugar; mix until creamy and well incorporated.
  • Add egg and vanilla extract; mix well.
  • Add flour mixture; mix for 30 seconds to thoroughly blend dough.
  • Add mix-ins. Add quick oats, M&Ms® and Kit Kats®; mix for 30 seconds to evenly distribute.


Refrigerate dough

  • Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.


Form cookies

  • Line Brava metal tray with parchment paper.
  • Roll dough into golf ball size portions.
  • Place 5 dough balls on Zones 1, 2 and 3 of metal tray, making sure they are spread evenly apart.


Preheat oven, then bake cookies

  • Press green button to begin preheating. Do not put cookies in Brava while it preheats.
  • Once Brava is preheated, slide metal tray into top shelf and press green button to begin baking.



  • When cookies are done, carefully remove metal tray.
