What’s better than leftover Halloween candy?

Giant Halloween candy cookies packed with pieces of kit kats, peanut butter cups and walnuts! That’s what!

Leftover Halloween Candy Bar Cookies

While I usually prefer a soft cookie like Nestle toll-house, I really enjoyed these. Crisp around the edges and chewy in the middle, they take a little more time to eat than your average, everyday cookie. One of them is all I need to feel completely satisfied. And I put all those lonely, unclaimed candy bars to good use. Made them feel wanted. I think they’re much better off this way!

A little trick for softening up hard cookies is to put a piece of bread or apple into the container, depending on how hard they are it can take up to 24 hours for them to soften, so give it time!
