This recipe for Triple Peanut Butter Cookie Delights was created by using the
leftover candies from my Halloween baking.
I like to go through my baking cabinet, spice drawer, and dry goods frequently to use items that may be ready to expire. It is a chance to also use candies, chips, or other baking products that were seasonal.
Last year I found a variety of chips and candies, so making cookies was the obvious way to use them. I will share some other recipes over the next few weeks, but first is Triple Peanut Butter Cookie Delights.
I used a basic peanut butter cookie recipe and then added
mini reese’s pieces, m&m’s, and mini peanut butter cups. Any kind of little candies will work, or break bigger candy pieces into smaller ones.
When making cookies with leftover candies and chips, there does not have to be an exact measurement. You do need to measure the actual cookie dough ingredients, but feel free to throw in whatever candies you have.
Prepare the dough.
Add chips and candies.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly, add mini peanut butter cups to center of cookies. I did not have enough
mini cups for all of the cookies, so some were left plain.
Since I am trying to eat fewer sweets, I did taste 2 and then
gave the rest away. Hopefully I can be as strong with the other kinds of cookies that I bake.
