Do you hate to throw all that leftover candy? Perhaps you might reconsider. Hali Horn, a former pastry chef at Kittichai, does too. So she baked them– into warm, chewy cookies.
(Makes approx. 2 dozen)
- 8oz unsalted butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp malted milk powder (optional)
- 2 cups left over Halloween candy, cut into ¼” pieces*
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Beat butter and sugar in a mixer until light and fluffy.
Mix vanilla extract and eggs together and add to butter mixture in 2 batches, beat until light and fluffy.
Mix all dry ingredients together and add in 2 batches to butter mixture until combined well.
Add candy and mix until just combined.
Using tablespoons, place balls of dough onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes.
Cool and serve.
** Candies like licorice, candy corns and the like will work in the recipe, but do not bake as well as chocolate, caramel, nougat, etc.
