Halloween Candy Cookies

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 Β bake…

What you will need:Β 

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 andΒ 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!
