The Halloween buzz is now over, but it likely left a giant pile of candy in its wake. These Scrap Candy Cookies are a great way to use up all that candy! The name says it all…these cookies are made from those scraps of leftover candy and treats you have laying around: chopped Snickers, Reese’s, graham crackers, pretzels, Kit-Kat’s…anything and everything you have on hand!

Scrap Candy Cookies

Ingredients: *Makes about 24 cookies

  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ tsp. vanilla
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3 cups white flour
  • 1 cup chopped candy
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped “crunchies” (Rice Krispies’ cereal, pretzels, nuts, graham crackers, etc.)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (unless chilling the dough).
  2. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, cream the brown sugar, white sugar and softened (but not melted!) butter until smooth.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until just mixed. (Don’t overmix or your cookies will be stiff).
  4. Add the baking soda, salt and flour and mix until just incorporated.
  5. Chop the candy and “crunchies” and gently mix into the dough, along with the chocolate chips.
  6. If desired, chill the dough in the refrigerator for 2-24 hours.
  7. Spray two baking sheets with non-stick spray or cover with parchment. Roll the dough into balls and spread evenly on the baking sheets.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes. (We recommend taking them out slightly earlier than you usually would for an extra gooey, soft cookie).
  9. Allow to cool and enjoy!
