Using leftover Halloween candy

Chocolate stuffed cookies

Someone left a whole bag of extra Halloween candy in our green room at work, so I took it. And I used the peanut butter cups to stuff in chocolate cookies. I have to figure out what to do with the heath bars and whoppers.

Our oven is on it’s way out, but it’s under warranty, so we are getting a new one for free. I ordered it,so I hope our current oven lasts until the new one is delivered. Baking has been an adventure the last 2 plus months!

Remember to spoon your flour and baking cocoa from your container into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. I like to chill the individually stuffed cookies for at least a few hours. Also, preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking so it gets to the right temperature.

  • Ingredients
  • 5 tbs Crisco
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cups chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Leftover Halloween candy!
Added a peanut butter chip on top

Directions – in a microwave safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips in 30 second increments until you can stir smooth. I another bowl, cream sugar, Crisco and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in melted chocolate. Fold in dry ingredients. Scoop out 2 tbs dough and cover a piece pf leftover Halloween candy. Chill at least a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. Stagger cookies on the sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Oreo is another stuffed cookie option

Monster size chocolate chip cookies

Now,that’s a cookie!

You may want to schedule an extra workout session, run or walk before eating one of THESE chocolate chip cookies to burn off the extra calories. To say they are large is an understatement! Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies, so instead of having two or 3, just have one of these and call it a day! These use a mix of cake flour and all purpose flour. If you don’t have cake flour, you can make it by sifting 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour with 1 1/2 tbs cornstarch. Also, I was in a rush and only had cold butter to work with, so I used a cheese grater to shred it so I could work with it quickly.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, cold, grated with a cheese grater
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 yolks
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – cream grated cold butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add eggs and yolks. Fold in dry ingredients. Mix in chips. Divide dough evenly into thirds. Then divide each third in half. Then, divide each remaining dough pieces in half. There are your 12 cookies., pile dough into mounds. Chill at least a few hours. Preheat oven to 400 degrees fpr 20 minutes. On a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners, bake 10 to 12 minutes. There will be light golden spots on top. Cool on sheets completely. Do not be like my husband and grab one while it is still hot. 😳 store in covered container.

When it comes to cookies, the bigger, the better!
