Have Left Over Halloween Candy? Make Cookies With Them!

This Halloween was different, and I knew it would be, but we only had 6 kids come to the door to Trick or Treating. Needless to say, we had a lot of candy leftover.

Kevin ate all of the chocolate bars and left all the Smarties for me! Instead of slamming them back like little shooter boxes, I decided to make cookies with them.

I only had enough Smarties for a half recipe but they hit the spot! The best thing about this recipe is you can use any type of coated candy you’d like, M & M’s, Mini Eggs anything that has a hard outer shell you can use. It’s a nice change from chocolate chips and helps to use up extra candy should you have it lying around.

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 cup of Smarties

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside.

Whip butter for one minute on high, then add both sugars. mix for another 5 minutes on med-high until it becomes a pale yellow. 

Add the egg in, mix, then add in the vanilla. Scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl. Beat until this is well combined, 2-3 more minutes.

Slowly add the flour mixture. Once that is combined add the Smarties.

Scoop the batter and bake on parchment-lined cookie sheets for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
