Halloween Candy Cookies
There are two types of people at Halloween, those that don’t have any leftover candy and those that have too much. This recipe is a great way for the second group of people to use up leftover Halloween chocolates to make soft delicious cookies that the whole family will love.
1 c salted butter (softened)
1 c granulated sugar
1 c brown sugar (packed)
2 tsp vanilla
3 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 c assorted Halloween chocolates (refrigerated for 1 hour then chopped)
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and set aside.
With a mixer, cream together softened butter, white and brown sugar until combined. Then beat in eggs and vanilla, mixing for another minute.
Gradually add dry ingredients and mix until combined.
Stir in chocolate candies until evenly distributed.
Refrigerate dough for a minimum of one hour or overnight (this is so the cookies don’t spread too much when you bake them).
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 and prepare 2-3 cookie sheets. Roll into 2-3 tablespoon balls (your preference) of the cookie dough (leave in balls, don’t press down) and space evenly apart on cookie sheets.
Cook for 11-12 minutes or until just barely starting to brown and still soft. Remove from oven and after 3 minutes, put cookies on cooling rack to continue to cool.
