One thing that Halloween reminds me of more than anything is candy! I have THE biggest sweet tooth so I always welcome holidays with open arms because it’s a wonderful excuse to indulge it festive, seasonal treats. I have fond memories of being a child anxiously waiting to get home after an evening of trick-or-treating with my (and my brother’s and sister’s) huge bag of candy so we could pour everything out onto the dining room table and have it!
Even though I’m not anticipating seeing a lot of spooky little visitors this evening, that didn’t stop me from heading out with all the last minute shoppers to stock up on all the popular candy choices. My plans for these lovely little sweets were to mix them into cookies, and boy am I glad I envisioned such a recipe. I’m happy to report that they came out devilishly good. I’ve appropriately dubbed them Candy Bar Cookies!
I chose Kit Kat, Twix , and Snickers bars to pack my go-to cookie base with lots of sweet, chocolatey, crispy, crunchy flavor…and they deliver just that! The cookie itself is soft and chewy combined with a wonderful trio of these popular candies. Their delicious 🙂
What I like about these cookies is that each individual cookie ends up with it’s own distinctive flavor. Some had a crispy Kit Kat texture, while others were bursting with the chocolate nuttiness that Snicker lovers are so found of. This is a whole new way to enjoy your favorite candy bars besides just straight from their wrappers.
Have a safe and spooktacular Halloween everyone!
