Leftover Halloween Candy Cookies are the perfect way to use up a chunk of that leftover Halloween candy made from your favorite bite sized candy bars and basic baking ingredients like flour, butter and sugar.
I there a household at the moment (especially with kids) that isn’t drowning in Halloween candy? Typically, whatever Halloween candy sin’t eaten within 2 weeks after the holiday, I just toss in the garbage but I also hate waste so these Leftover Halloween Candy Cookies are a great way to get rid the candy. Send some to work with my husband… gift to neighbors (like they don’t have enough sugar in their homes too, haha)… or just make a fun treat for the family.
Leftover Halloween Candy Cookies
Leftover Halloween Candy Cookies are just a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe I have had around for awhile but we are swapping those chocolate chips for whatever chocolate candies are still around. Pick the chocolates that won’t get eaten or do a mix of your favorites. Totally up to you. Some candies will stick more than others so keep that in mind. Butterfingers for example are super sticky when baked so I did just a sprinkle of Butterfingers on the top.
Candies to include:
- Butterfingers (can stick to pan a bit so sprinkle on top of dough before baking is best)
- Hershey’s chocolate bars
- 3 Musketeers
