Hi friends! Im excited to share this yummy cookie recipe with you today! It’s the perfect time of year to make these cookies because they are SO versatile and you can use some of that pesky Halloween candy you have laying around. We always pick 3 chocolate candies for our Chocolate Candy Cookies, but you can do it however you want!
I love making these cookies after trick-or-treating because it uses up some of the candy. You can make several batches to use up even more and you can make different combinations. Today, I’m sharing the cookies we made using M&Ms and chopped up mini Snickers and mini Reeses cups. It was a really yummy combo.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Chocolate Candy Cookies…
- 3/4 cup of butter (or coconut oil)
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup chocolate candies
Preheat oven to 350*. Mix butter and sugar together well. Then mix in vanilla and egg. In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, and baking soda. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well. Fold in chocolate candies. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes. Form into balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool for 3 minutes. EAT YOUR HEART OUT!
Tip: I love using my Silpat mat for baking cookies! They come out perfect every time.
They are SO delicious and so versatile. Next time my daughter wants to use KitKats, Twix, and Butterfingers in the cookie mix. Sounds like a plan!
