Leftover Halloween Candy Cookie Bars

Leftover Halloween candy cookie bars

Every year once Halloween is over, that bowl of leftover candy sits in the cabinet. Usually it doesn’t last long because I have no will power and will eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner and then I’ll have Rick take some to work  to get it out of the house. These Leftover Halloween Candy Cookie Bars are the perfect and most delicious way to use up that candy!

 

Leftover Halloween Candy Cookie Bars

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temp
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • leftover Halloween candy (I find that the chocolate based works best – no gummy or sour candies)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or spray really well with nonstick baking spray.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. In a separate bowl (I used my Kitchen Aid), mix together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamed together.
  5. Add in the eggs and vanilla, mixing well.
  6. Add in the flour mixture (dry ingredients) into the wet ingredients and stir until combined.
  7. Sprinkle in the chocolate chips. (If you have M&Ms you can use those too!)
  8. Spread the cookie dough on the prepared baking tray, pressing down until firm.
  9. Bake until golden brown (about 20 minutes)
  10. While the cookie dough bakes, unwrap your chocolate candy and break into chunks.
  11. When the cookie dough is done baking, remove from the oven. Press the chocolate candy pieces into the top of the cookie dough while still warm. We had leftover googly eye sprinkles so I sprinkled those on too.
  12. Allow to cool completely, then cut and serve.

Random thoughts on this Saturday fall morning-

What a week! We celebrated Dude Man’s 5th birthday all week long! I made this double layered sprinkle cake and let me tell you, it was worth every bite of deliciousness. But all that partying has me tired. I’m ready to just kick back this weekend.

Season 3 of You is finally out on Netflix! And if you’re looking for more spooky themed shows/movies to watch, “Halloween Kills” is out on Peacock.

You know those flashy holiday yard inflatables? I always swore I would never get one and the kids wore me down. Meet “Ghosty”. (He’s linked in this week’s “5 Things I Bought Friday”). The kids are already asking what we’re gonna buy for Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, people are already starting their holiday shopping and I’m just not ready yet. Maybe once we get through Halloween.

It was a busy week on the blog!

Hometalk featured my DIY whitewashed brick fireplace from a few years ago. This is the DIY that sparked our passion for DIYs. Whitewashing out fireplace was the very first project we ever did in our first home. After seeing how easy it was and the transformation, we soon set out on more DIY projects together.

5 Things I Bought Friday

Dandelion Root Tea – Dandelion Root Tea has sooo many benefits. I drink this when I feel super bloated or inflammed and it helps to shed that extra water weight. It’s also great for digestion, immunity, and overall wellbeing. It doesn’t taste the best but it works! I make a cup in the morning with a squeeze of lemon and a dash of tumeric.

Olaplex Shampoo and Conditioner – I started using Olaplex probably like 6 months ago after I noticed a lot of breakage in my hair. This has helped make my hair stronger and healthier looking! Between this and the Malibu Hair repair as we had hard water before, I’ve noticed a big change.

Shacket – Is it a shirt? Is it a jacket? It’s a shacket! Super cute for fall and I love these colors too! It’s not wool lined either so it’s not itchy.
