Do you guys remember my post on the incredibly soft chocolate chip cookies?
Well, we are back with a new twist to this recipe and boy is it double trouble… and by double trouble I mean, double chocolate cookies trouble.
These cookies have cocoa powder to make them chocolate and are filled with white chocolate chips and Reese’s Pieces to fit the Halloween theme. YUM!
Have you picked out your Halloween costume yet?
I plan on dressing up like a cat (same as last year). I don’t think my husband is going to dress up but Rosie is going to be a Redskins cheerleader. Shout out to Auntie Sara, for the outfit. Also, HAIL to the Redskins and their win against the Cowboys yesterday!
Luna is going to be a strawberry (thank you, Lindsey, for the outfit).
Next year I know Rosie will be picking out her own costume so this is the last year we can pull this off 🙂
If you haven’t tried the incredibly soft chocolate chip cookies you really should. They are literally my favorite cookie in the whole world. I wanted to add a twist to this recipe by making a Halloween themed cookie.
The only difference in the recipe is I added 1/2c of Hershey’s cocoa powder, a smidge more coconut oil and I added in Reese’s Pieces and replaced the chocolate chips with white chocolate chips.

I hope everyone has a safe and candy-filled Halloween!
Double Chocolate Cookies
- 1/2 cup coconut oil softened (not melted)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- 1/3 cup truvia sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour sometimes I use whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa powder
- 2 tsp corn starch
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup Reese's Pieces
In a mixing bowl, combine oil, sugars, egg, and vanilla on medium-high speed until it is light and fluffy.
Add in the flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda, and sea salt and continue to mix on medium-low speed. Fold in the chocolate chips by and until just combined. *Note - do not blend the chocolate chips or Reese's Pieces with the mixer otherwise the chips will get crushed.
Shape dough into 1" balls and place on a large plate. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the dough balls 2" apart on a greased baking sheet.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes (or until lightly browned) and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.
These cookies can be eaten right away or placed in a freezer bag in the freezer for 3-4 months.
