I do not have kids so I take pride in being the cool neighbor that gives out full size candy bars at Halloween. Last year was our first year in this house so I had no idea how many candy bars I needed to make sure I had a candy bar for everyone, so of course I ended up over buying. My husband, Mike, does not eat candy and there are only so many I can eat on my own so I had to come up with a recipe to give them away. So here is what I came up with. Perfect for leftover candy or any time of the year when you have some extra candy bars.
Halloween Leftover Candy Cookies
What You Need: 1 c Softened Butter, 1/4 c White Sugar, 3/4 c Brown Sugar, 1 t Vanilla Extract, 2 1/4 c Flour, 2 Eggs, 1 t Baking Soda, 2 c Candy Bars (whatever you want),
1 c Chocolate Chips
1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2) Chop the candy bars in to small pieces, a little larger than chocolate chips. Then set aside.
3) In a large mixing bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar.
4) Once that is mixed add in the eggs and vanilla extract.
5) Next add the dry ingredients, flour and baking soda, to the mixture. Mix well.
6) Finally mix in the candy bar pieces and chocolate chips.
7) Use a spoon or cookie dough scooper to drop a spoonful of dough onto a ungreased baking sheet.
8) Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
9) Let the cookies cool and then enjoy!
This recipe will be different for everyone since there are so many candy combinations. Some good candy bar choices: Butterfingers, Twix, Reese Pieces, Snickers. Try it out and let me know your favorite.
