What is there to do with that extra Halloween candy? Well I decided to make cookies out of it. I got the candy bars that were left and added them into my usual chocolate chip cookie recipe, it ended up being really yummy and I have a few tips that will probably help make your cookies even better than mine!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
2 1/4 c flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 c butter
1/2 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar – packed
2 t vanilla
1 bag chocolate chips/ 2 cups chopped Halloween Candy bars
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In small mixing bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt – set aside. In large mixing bowl cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add vanilla and egg, beat well. Add dry ingredients, mix well. Add chocolate chips, mix well. (Personally I add chocolate chips in with the dry ingredients.) Drop about 2″ apart from each other onto un-greased cookie sheets. Bake 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven, place on cooling rack.
Halloween Candy Addition Information
First I mixed up my cookies like normal. Then I chopped up the candy bars. Remember when you chop them up you don’t want them too small.
I ended up not using the Baby Ruth bars, and now that I’ve done it I would probably leave the Butterfingers out as well. They basically turned to dust when I chopped them up and then make the cookies stick to the cookie sheet after they were baked. I’d save them for homemade milk shakes instead of cookies. Also, I would suggest (if you can) doubling the amount of candy bars. I ended up add some chocolate chips, but by the end wish I would have added more.
Then I balled up the cookies and baked them. YUM!
