Halloween Candy Cookies Recipe

Halloween Candy Cookies Recipe

Make Halloween candy cookies to get rid of all those fun size chocolate bars left over from trick-or-treating. For the best flavor, stick with chocolate, caramel and peanut flavored candies since Sour Skittles probably won’t taste so great with Butterfingers.

For my recipe I used the following combination of candy:

  • 6 small Tootsie Rolls
  • 3 Payday bars, fun size
  • 3 Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups
  • 3 Snickers Peanut Butter Squared Bars
  • 3 Snickers Crispers fun size
  • 3 Twix fun size

Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 cups chopped assorted candy bars
  • Sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with a Silpat silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  3. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  4. In a large sized mixing bowl, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar with an electric mixer until blended.
  5. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix in well.
  6. Mix in the flour mixture at low speed until just combined.
  7. Stir in the chopped candy by hand with a big spoon.
  8. Separate dough into four equal parts and roll into four logs, each log measuring about two inches in diameter.
  9. Using a knife, cut the first log into 12 equal pieces (about 1 inch each).
  10. Place the dough pieces on the baking sheet a few inches apart and bake the cookies for 11 - 12 minutes until golden brown.
  11. Sprinkle the cookies with a few grains of sea salt and let them cool on the baking sheet for 3 to 5 minutes before transferring to a baking rack.
  12. Continue to cut and bake the additional three logs of dough — or wrap each log separately in several layers of cling wrap and freeze for future baking.
Notes
Cut the candy pieces into rather large chunks if you want pieces to remain identifiable; otherwise, smaller pieces of candy will melt into unrecognizable blobs.
