November 2, 2018

Halloween may be over, but we know you have leftover candy or maybe you stormed the clearance aisle at Target on your way to work on Thursday morning. Here's the perfect treat to satisfy all your dessert dreams!

Better Homes And Garden's Leftover Halloween Candy Cookie Bars Recipe:

Nonstick cooking spray
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon of baking soda
½ teaspoon of salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 ½ cups packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup candy-coated milk chocolate and/or peanut butter pieces
2 cups assorted Halloween candies, chopped if large

Directions: Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, leaving about 1 inch of foil extending over the ends of pan. Coat foil with cooking spray and then set aside. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extract. Stir in dry ingredients and candy-coated pieces until combined. Pat dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Lightly press remaining candy on top of the dough.

Bake for about 30 minutes, or until edges are browned and center is set. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Use foil to lift uncut bars from pan. Remove foil and cut into bars. Eat. Enjoy. Be happy.
