Halloween Candy Cookie Bars


Halloween was a week ago but I bet you still have tons of candy left over! Last year I made candy cookies, this year, I simplified it and made cookie bars! Much quicker to make than individual cookies but tastes just as good ๐Ÿ™‚ So grab that candy bowl and let’s get baking…

What you will need:ย 

9 inch square bake pan, greased
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon bakingย soda
Dash of salt
1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chocolate Halloween candy. About 1 cup. We used Reece’s pieces, snickers, butterfingers and M&M’s but use what you have! And cut the bars to smaller pieces.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.ย 

In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In another large bowl, beat butter and both sugars until creamy and smooth. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until incorporated. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in candy.

Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly and smooth the top. Bake for about 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before cutting and digging in! Store covered at room temperature. Enjoy!
