Everything But the Kitchen Sink Halloween Candy Cookies

Recently Hershey sent me a bunch of their Halloween candy and it took everything I had not to eat every single bag that they sent. Reese’s, Kit Kat, Reese’s Pieces, York Peppermint Patties, Rolos and Pumpkin Spice Kisses. See why I had some trouble not eating all the candy?!

To satisfy my craving to EAT ALL THE CANDY but also to share it I made Halloween Candy Cookies. They’re the perfect way to get rid of all that left over chocolate from Halloween and still enjoy and share it with others at the same time. That is the point of Halloween right? Eating and Giving? Or am I mixing up Thanksgiving and Christmas?

Oh well. The point remains. Halloween Candy Cookies are the best way consolidate your Halloween candy and spread the candy love.

Halloween Kitchen Sink Cookies

For these cookies I used Rolos, Kit Kats, Mini Reese’s Cups and Reese’s Pieces. But you can pretty much use whatever chocolate candies you have. The only thing I would suggest is keeping the flavors similar. For example I didn’t use the York Peppermint Patties or the Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses because I thought they may clash.

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Parchment paper is highly suggested in large part due to the Rolos and how they felt! Then combine your dry ingredients, 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon salt.
