OK... so last year, when we had all that candy sitting around, I decided to make cookies out of it. They were so good that my family started to request them before we even got to Halloween!

I made them wait anyway.

Here's the recipe:

1/2 c. butter or margarine
1/2 c. shortening
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar (packed)
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
any combination of ground up candy you like.

my candy mix: 4 reese's, 4 fun size packs of peanut M&M's, 8 fun size snicker bars, and about a 1/4 c. of semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375.

I first put my candy (a little at a time-the snickers are best broken in half, 4 at a time; the reese's are best done with the chocolate chips, and I do the M&M's alone) in the blender (or food processor) and get it ground up; transfer to bowl until needed.

Now, cream together the butter, shortening, and sugars until light and fluffy. Then add vanilla and mix well. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Then add flour, salt, and soda. Mix well. Add your candy mix. Stir in until well blended, and then drop onto cookie sheet and bake 9 minutes. Remove sheet from oven and let the cookies sit on the sheet for a few minutes before removing to rack.

yummy way to eat that left over candy. woot.
