Halloween Candy Cookies

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.
