This Halloween Candy Bar Cookie is a combination of chocolate chip dough, peanut butter dough, and brownie mix baked all together on a large cookie sheet. Mini candies and chips are mixed in the dough and top the baked cookie.
My Halloween Candy Bar Cookie is a fun treat to serve at any party, as well as a good way to use some of the leftover Halloween candy. Cookie cakes are all over the internet and so easy to make. They can be decorated for any occasion. For many years, I have made chocolate chip ones, but decided to get a little adventurous with this cookie.
I purchased some bags of mini candies, chocolate chips, and colored chocolate chips. Crush the mini candy bars into smaller pieces, to add in dough.
Mix a chocolate chip cookie dough, and divide into 3 sections. (I used the Nestles Toll House Choc Chip recipe). I added chocolate chips to one part, colored chips to one, and crushed toffee bars to the last one.
Prepare a peanut butter cookie dough (I used the one on JIF jar). Prepare a brownie mix (I used Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge).
I did not use the full amount of any of the cookie dough in this bar cookie, so I baked the brownies, and froze the remaining cookie dough in balls.
To start, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. I used a Pampered Chef Stoneware sheet that is 11 x 17 inches.
For my Halloween Candy Bar Cookie, I pressed 1 cup amounts of the dough into rectangles on different areas of the pan. I kept my peanut butter dough as one larger part, but in the future, I would divide it also.
Save open areas on the pan for the brownie mixture. Press any candy pieces into the dough you choose, or add it after it is baked.
Spoon the brownie mixture into areas that are open. This will run into some of the other dough and turns out delicious.
Bake for about 15-18 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the dough. Remove from oven and cool on a wire cooling rack for about 45 minutes or more.
Transfer to a cutting board, decorate if desired with icing and more candy. Allow to cool completely and cut into desired size shapes.
