Sweet And Salty Cookie Surprise

Oh my I love everything about Halloween except for the bowl of candy that tempts me every time I walk by it.  Unfortunately I have no will power so today decided to whip up a batch of these cookies and eliminate a good chunk of the chocolate in my possession.  Trust me you won’t regret making them.  And a big thanks to my friend Amy for introducing this recipe to me…


  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda

1 cup of left over chocolate from your kiddos Halloween stash.  Chop up candy bars.

add 1 cup of crushed chip or pretzels


In large bowl, beat butter with granulated and brown sugars until fluffy.
Beat in eggs
Beat in vanilla.
Add flour and baking soda and mix well.
Stir in candy and crumbled snacks.
Drop by 2 tbsp onto parchment paper–lined baking sheets.

Bake in middle of 350°F oven, until golden, about 12 minutes. Let cool.  Enjoy!
