Leftover Halloween Candy Cookies

How much Halloween candy do you have left over from last Sunday? Despite having four sugar-high adults in our house last weekend and dozens of frightful neighborhood kids at our door, we still have tons of candy left over. Tons. I can't speak for S, but I'm kind of over the candy, so naturally I've found another use for it.
I call these cookies "candy cookies" because they have candy in them. Creative, no? If you don't have any Halloween candy left over then use that king sized bar of Hershey's milk chocolate you always try to avoid at the grocery check-out lane. Just make sure you don't eat it on the way home.

These cookies make every attempt to have a tad of healthy to them, but by no stretch of the imagination are they healthy just because they have whole wheat and oatmeal in them. They're stuffed chock full of Halloween candy, so S, eat them in moderation, please.

Candy Cookies
makes a lot


1 c. sugar
1 c. light brown sugar, packed
1 c. butter
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
2 1/2 c. oatmeal, measured then blended to a powder in the blender
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 c. chocolate chips
2 c. chopped chocolate candy

1. In the bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs beating well after each addition
2. Slowly add the flour, oatmeal, salt, powder and soda
3. Mix in candy and chips until well combined
4. Scoop with a medium scoop or roll into golf ball sized balls and place 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet
5. Bake at 375 for 8 - 10 minutes, making sure not to over-bake.

To freeze before baking, scoop onto a cookie sheet to freeze and then transfer to an airtight freezer bag to store. To bake straight from the freezer reduce temperature to 350.
