Cakery Friday: Leftover Halloween Candy Bark & Cookies

You tricked. You treated. You now have more candy leftover than you know what to do with.

Cakery has the answer{s}! Sure, you could give it away. You could eat it all tonight. You could just hand yourself over to the dentist for multiples fillings.

Here are two ridiculous recipes that will solve all of your candy problems. The bark could not be easier. Literally throw all of your leftover {chopped up} candy on a tray, top with melted chocolate and serve. The cookies are almost as simple. Swap out chocolate chips with your favorite Halloween candy. Can you say crowd pleasers?

Halloween Bark:

Gather the ingredients:

Crush up your favorite leftover candy. I used an array of Butterfinger, Reese’s Cups and M&M’s. I also chopped up a few Oreo’s, some candy corn and pretzel sticks. Spread 1/2 of the goods over a piece of parchment paper or a Silpat Mat.

In a microwave safe bowl, heat up 2 cups of white chocolate. Heat in 30 second intervals to insure you do not burn the chocolate. Pour the smooth chocolate over  top the candy. Use a spatula to even it out. Top the chocolate with the remaining candy, cookie and pretzel mixture.

Heat up 1/4 cup of dark chocolate, place in a piping bag or a Ziploc bag and cut a small hole in the bottom. Drizzle the dark chocolate over the bark. Finally, top with sprinkles and allow to cool completely.  Break into large chunks and serve!

Candy Cookies:

Gather the ingredients.

In the bowl of your electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment place 1 stick of room temperature, unsalted butter along with 2 ounces {1/4 cup} white sugar and 6 ounces {3/4 cup} light brown sugar. Beat until light and fluffy.

Add in 1 egg and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Mix until combined.

In a separate bowl measure out 8 ounces {1 cup) of all purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix into the butter/sugar mixture on slow speed, until just combined.

Finally, chop up 1 cup your favorite leftover Halloween candy and fold it into the mixture.

Spoon or scoop 1 tablespoon size balls onto a cookie sheet fitted with a Silpat mat or parchment paper.

Bake at 360 degrees until cookies are lightly golden. Allow to cool and enjoy!
