Tomorrow night, your kids will come home with buckets full of candy to eat (or, you might have bought a big bag of candy for yourselves instead of trick or treating this year). What are you going to do with all of it? If you want to spend more time with your kids this holiday season, consider making Halloween candy cookies!
Instead of finding your kids eating all their candy in their secret hiding place and getting overly excited from a sugar rush, try this method. Put your kids candy buckets high up on a shelf they can’t reach (even with the stepstool). Then let your kids pick out all of a certain kind of candy bar. Put them all in a pile and put the rest of the candy back on the shelf.
Then unwrap them together, have an adult chop them up, and put them into cookies! This way, you can space out the amount of sugar your kids get each day. No more binging, sibling candy raids, or tummy aches!
Here are some great recipes for cookies with common Halloween candies:
