Just a quickie recipe today! I hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween, we sure did!
These cookies are a great way of using up Halloween treats that are leftover. When you are tired of treats, it’s time to make these babies!
They are a chewy oatmeal cookie, so it’s a nice break from the usual cookies that are chock full of treats. I think that everyone needs at least one Halloween Candy Leftover Cookie recipe, don’t you?
Happy Baking everyone!
