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

  • 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


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • Line a cookie sheet with a Silpat silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  • In a large sized mixing bowl, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar with an electric mixer until blended.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and mix in well.
  • Mix in the flour mixture at low speed until just combined.
  • Stir in the chopped candy by hand with a big spoon.
  • Separate dough into four equal parts and roll into four logs, each log measuring about two inches in diameter.
  • Using a knife, cut the first log into 12 equal pieces (about 1 inch each).
  • Place the dough pieces on the baking sheet a few inches apart and bake the cookies for 11 - 12 minutes until golden brown.
  • 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.
  • 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.


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.
