“I found this recipe on the blog makeandtakes: "" The original recipe used a cake mix to make the cookies, store purchased frosting and standard issue chocolate chips-fyi. If you prefer, you could bake one big cookie to share with your friends and family! Photo coming soon!”
12 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 sugar cookies (or any favorite flat cookie of your choice)
  • 180 candy corn (approximately)
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag mini chocolate chips (aka "mini morsels"-Nestle makes them, for example)
  • 1 cup prepared yellow frosting (I use and like this one ( Recipe #68975) or 1 cup white frosting (I use and like this one, Cream Cheese Frosting)


  1. Note: each cookie will require approximately 15 candy corns. All amounts given in the ingredients' list are estimated.
  2. Bake your favorite batch of cookies-sugar, snickerdoodles, etc. For inspiration, see Recipe #181269.
  3. After cookies have cooled, frost cookies with icing.
  4. Petals: Place the candy corns with the pointy ends facing outward along the edges of the cookie, creating petals of the sunflowers.
  5. Sunflower seeds: Place mini chocolate chips all over the center for the sunflower seeds.
  6. Enjoy!
