Leftover Candy Cookies

 

How do you manage all of the candy leftover from Halloween?
As we sorted through the loot on October 31st I pulled out all of the candy that I thought I could bake with.  The M&Ms, Smarties {like M&Ms in Canada} and Reece’s Pieces. 
After that I had each of the kids pick their ten favorite pieces of candy to keep and eat over the next week.  The rest was given to Darcy to take to the food bank.  {It didn’t quite make it past Daddy though ~ I am still finding wrappers in the garbage bins lol}.
I threw the Smarties and M&Ms into my Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe.  Then I created these cookies with the Reece’s Pieces {to rave reviews}.
