Candy Bar Cookies



Since living in Arkansas, I have experienced so many new things....one of them being hayrides!  I have never been on a hayride before....not too many hayrides going on in the city.  They are so much fun!  I think us city people have been missing out.  My family went to three hayride/bonfire parties in one week and with that they ended up with what seems like 30 lbs of candy!  So, I got the idea to make Candy Bar Cookies.  This is a great way to use up all that yummy candy.

Ingredients

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 10 mini size candy bars of your choice
  • 1/4 cup chopped candied walnuts 
To make candied walnuts~ melt 3 tablespoons of butter in pan and add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and a pinch of salt.  Melt together and add walnuts.  Keep stirring for about 2 mins.  Set aside to cool.


Directions

1. Heat oven to 350°F.
2. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in chopped candy and nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheet.
3. Bake 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
