Oh the sweetest things! Halloween has come and gone and all that remains of that frightful night are the mounds of candy sitting in my kitchen. What better way to “recycle” those leftovers then by mixing them together and baking them a la cookie style? Here’s a quick and fun recipe for Compost Cookies.
1 package sugar cookie dough
2 TBS butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups chopped Halloween candy (I used Kit-Kats, Snickers, Milky Ways, Hershey bars, M&Ms, and Mounds)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Make cookie dough according to package (or make from scratch if you’re up for it!). Add in candy and mix by hand until combined.
Grease a cookie sheet with 1 TBS butter. Roll 1 TBS sized balls of dough and scatter them on the cookie sheet. Grease the bottom of a glass cup with the remaining butter. Dip into the sugar and gently press each cookie until slightly flattened, dipping the glass in sugar before pressing each one.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until slightly browning on the edges. Remove, cool, and enjoy!
I love that you can use just about any combination of candies for this super cute recipe that bids farewell to October and brings in the baking of November! They’re a sweet treat that pleases every one 🙂
