What to do With All that Leftover Halloween Candy

With Halloween falling on a relatively warm Friday, I figured I'd err on the side of caution and buy more Halloween candy than normal- just in case. Well, wouldn't you know it, we had about 3 extra kids than we usually do and huge bowl full of leftover treats. Not a good thing to have lying around in our house!

We hosted a Rockstar Halloween party on Saturday night where we asked guests to come dressed as a rock/pop/country star. The costumes were amazing. We had Katy Perry, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, the Stefani/Rossdale family, a couple of Slash' and very convincing Boy George. I figured I could pawn off all of our leftover chocolate on our guests in the form of cookies and I was right. By the end of the night, all two dozen cookies were gone (hence, no photo of the finished product).

Halloween Candy Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. hot water
1/2 tsp. salt
12-14 mini chocolate bars, chopped
sea salt (optional)

Preheat over to 350.
Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Dissolve the baking soda in warm water and add to mixture along with the flour and salt. Stir in the shopped chocolate bars. Drop by large spspoonfulsn a greased cookie sheet- these will spread a fair bit so be mindful of how many you put on the pan. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges are brown.
