Trick or treating was a big success. Kora and Logan received so much candy there’s no way they’ll ever eat it all.
So I decided to be a little creative and chopped up a variety of candy bars and mixed them into a cookie cake recipe. Wow! This turned out amazing and won’t last long. In fact, we are all having a harder time staying away from this than the candy!
Leftover Halloween Candy Cake Mix Cookies
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups left over chocolate Halloween candy, chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 13X9 baking pan with cooking spray, covering bottom and sides.
- Combine cake mix, egg, water, butter, and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl.
- Use hand mixer for 1 – 2 minutes until creamed together.
- Add candy and mix 1 more minute.
- Spread mixture into baking pan covering bottom. Spray spatula with cooking spray if it’s sticking.
- Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the center, when it comes out clean it’s done.
- Cool 10 minutes and cut into squares.
- Eat and enjoy!

What a fabulous idea! I am a fan of using up all that candy. If it’s in the house, I eat it! I can totally bring these in for my students!

My sister in law does this and it always tastes so good! Especially the snickers, yum!
I bought 4 bags of chocolate candy bars and didn’t have but a handful of trick or treaters once I got home. I might just have to make a cookie cake too!
Wow… i never thought that all those candy can be such a good ingredients for cake.

Think I’ll freeze my leftover candy and do just that and bring the treats with me when I go to my brother’s on Christmas morning. Thanks for the great idea.
What a good idea! The chocolate stuff is always the first to go at our house:)

I think I might try this for the boys. I’m sure they would enjoy it.
Great idea, I’ve been eating way too much candy:(

Oh my, look at all that loot!! They must have had super costumes and were really sweet – well I know they are super sweet for a fact!
What great idea for you to make with some of their candy, it sounds really delicious. Too bad I don’t have any kids to go TorT for me and I am all out of the candy that I bought to hand out. I made 200 baggies and was all out by 7:40p.m.
Thanks for sharing the recipe. =)

What a haul of candy! My kids spent about an hour categorizing and counting their candy. These bars are a great way to use some of it up.
