candy corn cake mix cookies

Recipe by

I made these cookies with two types of candy corn, Brach's Caramel Apple Candy Corn, and Caramel Candy Corn. And since they're a rather moist cookie, I place them in a Tupperware container and in the freezer. I only take out cookies I plan on eating immediately.

    Remove baking sheet from the oven, and immediately place candy corn on each cookie. Pressing each candy corn lightly onto each cookie.
