Wondering what to do with all of that extra Halloween candy? What? You ate it all? If you did, this recipe is not for you.
But if your kids’ Halloween candy loot is still plentiful, rummage through and grab about 20 “fun size” Snickers, 3 Musketeers, and Milky Ways. Chop them up into little pieces and set aside. (By the way, why do they call them fun size anyway? You eat them in two bites and then bam, the party is over.)
Now you’re ready to rock Pippi’s Positively Pleasant Halloween Candy Cookie Recipe. (Say that three times. Now, say it three times with a mouthful of Snickers. Not so easy, is it?)
- 1 cup softened butter
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 ½ cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 ½ teaspoons vanilla
- 2 ½ cups flour
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- about 16-20 miniature candy bars chopped up
Note: You can certainly use more candy bars if you like to nibble when food-prepping. J
What to do:
- Preheat oven to 350°
- In a mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugars, vanilla, eggs
- In another bowl, mix together dry ingredients
- Combine the wet and dry ingredients
- Mix in the chopped-up candy
- Plop spoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheet
- Bake for about 8-9 minutes. Take out before you think they look done and allow to cool. Otherwise, you will burn the crap out of your tongue and that is never a good thing.
Oh, and don’t go on Facebook or Twitter while you are baking, as you will likely burn a tray or two. Like I did. Just now.
Calorie count? Well, consider this. You are combining candy + cookies. Sometimes it’s just best not to know.
