Candy Bar Cookies

Candy Bar Cookies-

I am currently swimming in candy thanks to the Easter Bunny!

One of my favorite ways to use up excess candy is with a batch of Candy Bar Cookies. I make these after Halloween and after Easter…really any time I end up with too much candy. They are so simple and pretty much any candy bar will work. I generally gather a variety of different ones, chop them up and throw them all in the batter.

The recipe makes about 30 cookies. That is the perfect amount for my guys to have a few cookies then I package the rest and pass them off to friends. My buddies are happy and it’s a great way to get rid of all that yummy chocolate so it doesn’t end up as extra weight on my thighs ;-)

This is the busiest time of year for me. My boys have so much going on that dinner time is often a rushed meal between activities. Some nights there is not even time to cook. Those are the nights I depend on my slow cooker or do easy make-ahead meals like my BLT Pasta Salad. […]

I guess there is just something fun about that added component to what might otherwise be a boring dish. I mean c’mon…baked chicken is good but, Chicken Cordon Bleu Roll Ups are […]
