Walking down the candy isle at any supermarket or Target around Halloween season is so overwhelming! Bags and bags of candy everywhere! And the sales! Who can turn down those awesome sales! 10-pound bags of candy for like 20 cents! Well, I haven’t ever found that good of a deal, but some come close!
Anywho, I always end up with way too much leftover Halloween candy. Especially because now that we’re living in a secure condo building, there are no trick-or-treaters! Usually I end up throwing the candy in the freezer, and grabbing a piece or two here and there throughout the coming months.
But this year, I decided to find a quicker way to get rid of all the surplus Halloween candy. The hubby has been bugging me to make him chocolate chip cookies, so I figured that a Halloween Candy Skillet Cookie was an easy way to kill two birds with one stone. I was going to just substitute halloween candy for chocolate chips, but then I figured, how do you go wrong with some extra chocolate? So, I threw in some chocolate chips for good measure.
This Halloween Candy Skillet Cookie is so easy! Just mix up the dough, press it into the skillet, and throw it in the oven! No spooning cookies onto a cookie pan, or multiple batches to forget are baking in the oven (No, of course I’ve never forgotten a batch of cookies in the oven and burned them to a crisp…oops!) Just set the time for 25 minutes, and poof! A delicious Halloween Candy Skillet cookie will be waiting for you!
Don’t even wait for Halloween evening! You know there will be leftovers. So throw a skillet cookie in the oven to enjoy right now!
