Just a quickie recipe today! I hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween, we sure did!
What to Do With Leftover Halloween Candy
These Leftover Halloween Candy 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!

Halloween Leftover Cookies
- Prep Time
- 5 minutes
- Cook Time
- 8 minutes
- Total Time
- 13 minutes
- Karlynn Johnston
- 1 cup butter
- 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cup white flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 1/2 cups large flake oats
- 2 cups Smarties M & M's or chopped up chocolate bars, etc
- Kick the tires and light the fires to 350 degrees.
- In a mixing bowl, cream together your butter and sugars.
- Once those are light and fluffy, beat in the eggs and vanilla, again until it's light, airy and completely combined.
- Take the flour and mix the baking soda in, then add to the bowl.
- Mix on low speed until the dry ingredients are blended in.
- Add in the oats, mixing until they are through the dough.
- Take your Halloween candies and mix them in by hand.
- Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Take a golf ball sized scoop and roll into a ball. Then flatten them either between your palms or on the cookie sheets. Fit six to a sheet. Or, if you choose to do larger ones, space accordingly. You must flatten them to achieve the flat yet chewy goodness you see in the photo.
- Bake in the 350 degree oven for 7-8 minutes, watch them carefully, then pull them out when they look browned. They might be a little "soft in the middle" good! Cool them on the sheets completely.
