Candylicious Cookies

Hi, it’s me Lily again.

I had so much fun on Halloween.

Here is a picture:

Halloween 2013

I was a witch, my brother was the Hulk and Evie was a witch too. We went Trick or Treating and got SO much candy.

The day after Halloween my mom went through our candy and took out a few favorites of ours and put the rest in a bag for daddy to take to work to give to his students. I think that’s a good idea.

My mom said we needed to get rid of the candy so we made some yummy cookies filled with Candy Pieces. I picked all my favorites to put in the cookies, which means they were SO SO good!!

Candylicious Junkyard Cookies!! Perfect for getting rid of all that Halloween Candy. #cookies

You can put your favorites in there too, but I put in M&Ms, Butterfinger, Milky Way, Twix, and Kit Kats. I put in more Milky Ways than the others because they are my favorite!! :)


The Game Plan - Junkyard Cookies

My mom said these cookies are perfect for getting rid of the Halloween Candy. I say these Candylicious Cookies are perfect because they are filled with yummy candy! We called them Candylicios Junkyard because it reminds of us an ice cream at a place here called The Chocolate Bar that makes Candylicious Junkyard Ice Cream (filled with lots of Chocolate candy), that is my favorite!

Here’s the recipe:

Candylicious Cookies
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanila
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • candy
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter, oil and sugars in mixer.
  2. Add eggs and beat until fluffy.
  3. Ad dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Add cut up candy and mix until all combined.
  5. Add to greased cookie sheet and bake for 6-9 minutes (we baked ours for 7). ENJOY!

    Okay so this is the first time I’ve read your blog, sorry to be so late to the party, but I love how it’s written “by” Lily, such a clever way to write.

    These look so yummy that I will have to try them for sure. Another idea is what about cutting up the candy and freeze them in serving size baggies. And the suckers can be broken up with a hammer and frozen too for stained glass cookies. Have an awesome Sunday!

    Miss Lily we have our cookies in the oven as I type. Just wanted to let you know that we wouldn’t have made cookies today had it not been because of your post. My family thanks you soooooo much.
    Hugs and Kisses,
    The Richardson’s
    Can you believe Ms. L didn’t get one pack of M&M’s! And we separated our candies and just put them on the top of each cookie. That way each person could pick their favorite. The last patch was one of all the crumbs and guess what, it was my favorite!

      Good idea to let everyone pick their favorites and put them on top. I would have put Milky Ways and M&Ms on mine for sure!! Maybe Hershey’s Kisses too!! Love, Lily

    This is the second time that I have made these in one week! I am finally making a dent in the candy stash from Halloween! I left out the butter and used just oil, and it is still delicious- thanks so much for the timely post!
