Turn your favorite candy into your new favorite cookie.
On a recent trip to the bookstore, Levon ordered a peanut butter cup cookie — think chocolate chip, but with chunks of Reese’s cups instead. It was mind-blowing, or maybe I was just PMSing, but either way, it inspired me to use all of our leftover Halloween candy to make cookies. I used this Martha Stewart recipe as the base and simply stirred in various candies in place of chocolate chips. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
