~ Left-Over Candy Cookies ~


2 cups flour
4 tablespoons - butter
½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp salt
½  cup walnuts
Left over chocolate candy – equaling 1 cup after chopped
1 egg
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Sugar Dusting:

1 tablespoon sugar
Dashes of cinnamon

Preheat Oven 350 degrees:

In a food processor place the left over chocolate candy and the walnuts and process until small chunky pieces.

Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl.

In a mix-master place the butter and the sugars and mix until smooth and creamy.  Add the egg, vanilla and milk and mix on low.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the mix-master, alternating with the processed chocolate and walnut pieces, with the mixer on low. 

Form into a ball and pat with flour.  Wrap in plastic and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

Break small pieces from the dough and form into small walnut size balls.  Press the bottom of the glass on the dough to make it sticky and dip the bottom of the glass in the sugar dusting and flatten the cookie with the sugar coated glass bottom.

Bake 10 – 12 minutes.

These cookies are a good way to use up your candy bars and walnuts and the best part is they are really good.

  9. Those cookies look awesome but the odds of there being leftover candy in my house are slim ;) Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. Catherine, The problem in our house is that if chocolate is brought home, it wouldn't last long enough to make it to a cookie phase! My wife is a chocoholic! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
