I love M&M's. I also love how they are always coming out with new color and flavor combinations. When I first saw that they released a white chocolate candy corn version, I was super excited and immediately started searching all of our stores in hopes that someone might carry them in our small town. I didn't have any luck though. Since hurricane Irene devastated our area and flooded 90% of our shopping plazas, causing most of the stores to close indefinitely, our store options have been extremely limited.
But thanks to a couple of good friends of mine that happen to live near stores that do carry the candy corn M&M's, I was soon supplied with multiple bags and I was very happy!
I came across this recipe right after my search for the M&M's started. These cookies are really good. My husband and kids loved them. I'm not the biggest fan of white chocolate, but I also loved the cookies. They are super cute for fall or Halloween. I highly recommend making this recipe if you can find the candy corn M&M's!
