Candy Bar Cookies

Whether you are trying to get rid of extra Halloween candy, or you just want some really yummy cookies – I’ve got this recipe that we LOVE so much. I believe it came from one of my friends from my mission, she’s such a good baker!

 

Let’s talk candy-

Halloween brings SO much candy in my house. There have been years when the kids ask for candy daily for weeks and we all munch on it for way too long. We’ve since changed our ways and try and use or get rid of candy after a week. Here are some options if you too are dealing with too much candy.
  • Set a date to be done with candy. Let everyone eat a ton for a few days or add to lunches, snacks, etc. But share the END date and tell everyone what will happen after that. And stick to it.
  • Buy back the kids candy or find a place to donate it if that would be a motivator for your family.
  • Repurpose it! We save our Halloween candy for two things – candy bar cookies and candy for gingerbread house decorations – that will be coming just a month or two after. Sort into two bags and hide for later – just don’t forget about them!
 

For the cookies, find a good mix of chocolate candy, chop up 2 cups worth – and add it to your favorite cookie mix. Have the kids help pick the candy, open the wrappers or chop!

They say to SLOW DOWN.

They say kids grow up and we won’t get this time back.
But it’s not like the cooking, cleaning, driving just goes away.
It’s hard to see how to fit it in sometimes: running a home is a big job and it’s easy to get sucked into it.

So how do we do it?
