I always over estimate the amount of candy that I pass out to trick or treaters on Halloween. Consequently, I’m always left with packs of candy that I don’t want to eat.
One way I use up the chocolate is in Halloween candy cookies. I bake the cookies and then freeze them for later. The cookies will keep for several months if they are wrapped properly before being frozen.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
Mix the above ingredients together.
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup mixed Halloween miniature candies
Add wet ingredients to mixed dry ingredients and combine just until incorporated.
Fold in candies.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 to 15 minutes.
Try Christmas Candy Cookies as well.
