If your home is like our's, then your kids got a TON of Halloween candy, and I really don't want them munching on it for the next couple of months. SOOO, we unwrap it, chop it up and MAKE COOKIES! Then we can deliver them to neighbors or just for fun to friends and teachers.
Halloween Candy Cookies
3 2/3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups chopped candy bits (such as Butterfingers, Baby Ruths, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, m&m's, jelly beans, OR WHATEVER you have leftover.
Preheat oven to 350.
Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Set aside.
Beat butter and sugars together with a mixer until very light, about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture and mix until combined. Stir in candy bits.
Drop dough by tablespoons onto baking sheet. Bake 15- 20 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen really yummy cookies!
