Candylicious Cookies

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

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!!

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 Candylicious 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:

  1. 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.

  2. Morning:
    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!

    1. Thank you, Tanya. My mom was happy to get rid of the candy and my favorite candy is Milky Ways that’s why I put lots of those in there. 🙂 Love,Lily

  3. I love your costume!! You looked so cute!! I love the Chocolate Bar too!! I go there for my birthday every year and sometimes in between. Thanks for the delicious cookie recipe!!

    1. Thank you, Crystal! So glad you like The Chocolate Bar. We like to go there and dance under the disco ball. Love, Lily

  4. 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!

    1. 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

  5. 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!

    I’d give this recipe a 10 if I could! My friend was going to throw her leftover halloween candy in the garbage, so I said I would take it and make cookies or something with it. Boy am I glad I did! I loved the cookies so much that I bought a bag of fun-size candybars and made more! So addicting! I used smashed butterfingers, cut up milky way, snickers, twix, rolo, peanut butter cups, m&ms and chocolate chips. The dough looked really soft and I thought they would spread too much, but they were perfect as long as you don’t bake too long. I let them sit on the pan a little while after taking out of the oven for crisp outside and chewy inside. I think this is my go-to cookie recipe now!

  7. These cookies are wonderful! My kids and I are baking them right now, and they loved choosing all of their favorite Halloween candies to add! Thanks for the delicious, fun, and easy recipe!

    I just recently stumbled on your blog and tried the halloween candy recipe. I love the recipe however my Batch came out way too CRUNCHY, not as soft as i expected. The only in my baking was i left them in the Oven longer as i have an old oven and i used some different candies. Any help would be appreciated!!


    1. Usually that’s do to being baked longer or sometimes, I notice if ingredients are a little old, they turn out a little harder. Maybe it was because you left them in longer?
