Candy Corn M&M Macadamia Nut Cookies
If you like white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, you’ll fall in LOVE with these Candy Corn M&M Macadamia Nut Cookies.
Considering there’s not a lick of chocolate in these cookies, I’m always surprised at how much I seriously love them. Using white chocolate (candy corn) M&MS is such a fun twist on the classic white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, and I think you are going to really like these too!

Notes & Tips for Making White Chocolate M&M Macadamia Nut Cookies
- Save a handful of white chips and M&MS to press into the tops of the cookies after they bake. It makes them look so good!
- I made these cookies pretty big– using ¼ cup of dough for each cookie! You don’t have to do that. About half of that size (2 tablespoons) is a pretty good size cookie. Just remember to decrease your baking time by a couple of minutes.
- Remember that M&MS bleed their colors if chilled. So while you technically can refrigerate or freeze this dough for whatever reason, just remember that the colors may bleed some. I recommend baking the entire batch on the same day you make the dough and avoid any kind of chilling.
