Halloween Candy Monster Cookies
Already thinking about what to do with the haul of candy your kids will come home with from Trick-or-Treat? Maybe you overbought and will find yourself with a bunch of leftover candy. Either way, you’ve got what you need to make these amazing Leftover Halloween Candy Monster Cookies!
In an effort to rein in my sweet treats, I’ve told myself that desserts must include a human-made element, so I’ve tried to abstain from dipping directly into my girls’ trick-or-treat bags. This means baked goods created by myself, friends, or small bakeries, ice cream from local shops like Purple Door and chocolates from Indulgence are okay, but anything straight from Hershey, PA is not. In theory, this negates Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups which sounds like a horrible way to live, so I found a loop hole – these Monster Cookies.
Leftover Halloween Candy Monster Cookies Recipe
I picked M&Ms and Peanut Butter Cups for my version of this oat-based cookie, but you could use whatever chocolate-y goodness you love (and/or are trying to use up). I even added in two small baggies of pretzels someone gave my girls at our trick-or-treating. Hunks of Snickers would be fabulous, as would the coconut pizazz of Almond Joys or bust out the Take 5 to get a bunch of stuff in there in one shot. Ultimately, you need two and a half cups of chopped up add-ins, however you want to divide it up. Regular chocolate chips do the trick, too.
