Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower
I always over estimate the amount of candy that I will 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 this cookie recipe. 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.
