Tomorrow is Halloween and by Friday you may have more leftover candy than you know what to do with. Today, I’m sharing the perfect recipe to use up some of that candy. I’ve also teamed up with a few other bloggers to bring you even more candy inspired recipes. Make sure you scroll down to see more.
Halloween was my favorite holiday as a child. My aunt would pick us up from the bus after school and we would go to her house for an afternoon of fun. We made Halloween crafts and snacks and then went trick-or-treating. After we were done trick-or-treating, we went back to the house, dumped our buckets out on the floor and then traded with each other for our favorite Halloween candy. Snickers was always my favorite, even as a child, so I would trade anything and everything to go home with the most Snickers. I love the creamy nougat topped with caramel, peanuts and chocolate.
So what better way to use leftover Halloween candy than in a warm cookie pie. These Snickers deep dish cookie pies are warm, gooey, chocolaty goodness packed into a small dish. Top it with ice cream and you have the perfect post-Halloween treat.
Just for fun I decided to include a few pics from Halloween as a child. The first picture is my favorite Halloween costume. I’m not really sure why it was my favorite Halloween costume at the time, but I think I wore it a few years in a row. I may have been predicting what was to come because I was actually a cheerleader all through high school.
This next picture is my sister and I sometime in the early 90’s. She was (and still is) obsessed with all things Disney. She is lucky that I decided not to post the one of her in a princess Jasmine (of Aladdin) costume.
Snickers Deep Dish Cookie Pies
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 stick unsalted butter cold & cubed
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup Snickers
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Set aside at least 4 ramekins.
- In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda; mix to combine.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars until well blended and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well incorporated. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips and Snickers.
- Fill the ramekins about 3/4" deep with cookie dough. Set ramekins on a baking sheet and bake on the middle rack of the oven for 14-16 minutes, or until the top is just slightly golden brown. You want to aim for slightly underbaked cookies.
- Allow to cool slightly, top with ice cream and serve. Be careful because the ramekins will still be very hot.
