First we rounded up all the candy and extras we had on hand...like mini-peanut butter cups, candy corn, pretzel M&Ms and chocolate chips. And I always bake with real butter...if I'm going to eat a cookie, it's going to be the real deal!
Then we added a cup of each candy to the dough of my favorite cookie recipe, and piled them up extra-big.
Git in mah belly!
I will warn you, the candy corn tastes divine when it's all melty, but it makes a hot-mess of your cookie sheet. You know the topping on a candy apple? Like that! And to keep myself from eating every last one, we bagged some as treats for teachers and friends.
I simply stamped white paper bags with Halloween shapes, and tied them closed with tulle ribbon. Since the cookies are so jumbo, a single one makes a sweet gift.
I think adding Pretzel M&Ms is my new favorite thing...sweet + salty = perfect cookie!
Do you like your cookies simple, or jam-packed with everything in the house? I guess it's officially the holiday season for us now!
