Halloween is over! But what to do with all that candy? Bake with them, of course! Yes, I do love me some chocolate candy because surprisingly I only eat it once a year (Halloween). But I wanted to make a cookie with some of it, too. So, voila! Very similar to a chocolate chip cookie recipe but instead of chocolate chips you use chopped candy bars. Very yummy and different. So go through your left over candy stash and let’s bake…
What you will need:
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chopped chocolate candy (I used 4 Reece’s, 4 Twix, 4 Snickers and 4 Kit Kat bars, all snack size)
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In the bowl of your mixer, beat butter, oil and both sugars until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time and then beat in vanilla. Slowly beat in flour until incorporated. Fold in chopped chocolate and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Drop round spoonfuls of cookie dough onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes. Let cookies rest on cookie sheet for a minute or 2 before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
