It’s the new year and we’re still recovering from the holidays and all the sugar overload that comes with it. We wanted to pull a recipe from the past, that we thought would be a rather inclusive cookie for this time of year, a send off to the seasonal holidays, if you will. A Leftover Holiday Candy Cookie or a Welcome To The New Year Cookie! A delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe and easy for kids to bake!
These leftover Christmas chocolates will not only add a dash of color but also an extra dose of flavor. These cookies are great to make with any holiday’s leftover candy. We made these for Halloween and instead used a store bought cookie dough and also added some extra ingredients like marshmallows, since smores is always a big hit for our leftover Halloween cookie recipe. Like I said, you can add anything else to these cookies, the more the merrier! As Wickity Stitch would say ;)
We are going to start out with a basic chocolate chip cookie dough with just a couple of revisions, which is mainly adding more yummy goodness such as
m and m’s and peanut butter cups.
These Christmas Leftover Candy Cookies have a softer texture and plumps up, so the cookie base houses the peanut butter cup chunks nicely with every bite. Adding the m and m's also leaves a nice crunch alternative to the softer cookie.
Overall, these easy to make cookies are a win win and everyone will be running around screaming yum yum!
