The idea of these cookies came up while I was watching with my four years old daughter the movie “E.T.”. I didn’t remember how sweet and creepy E.T. was so I decided to bake something alien-like for Halloween 2014. I just added to my favorite double chocolate chip cookies recipe M & M’s white chocolate candy corn candies instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips, then I put two orange candies over each cookie to create alien eyes. These cookies are soft, rich and amazingly chocolatey. I baked 12 of them and they were gone in no time.

Happy Halloween!!!
