Can’t decide between a candy bar and melt in your mouth sugar cookies? Me either, that’s why I created Candy Bar Sugar Cookies that are going to rock your world!I always tell Justin, “If I ever die and you remarry, your wife is going to find all of my stashes.” I have stashes of candy everywhere in this house. I’m saving it for a special day. Please don’t knock me off in hopes of finding my candy stash. You will get fat! There you go, I warned you! Besides all the candy I already have stashed around, my cute little Santa Claus trick or treater is probably going to be bringing more candy home for me to hide! Crazy things happen to candy while kids are at school! I love these sugar cookies and decided adding a little candy to them would only make them better. The other day I was home alone so I went on a little scavenger hunt through my house and found enough, well plenty, of candy to use in these cookies. Candy Bar Sugar Cookies are LOADED with candy bars. Every bite of cookie is like a box of chocolates, you never know what kind of candy bar you are going to get. By the way do you see that cute little “Grab Some Goodies” mummy in the above picture? This is the back of that mummy! He happens to be my kids favorite Halloween decoration for obvious reasons. 🙂 (In case you wondered, it’s not their favorite because they can grab a goody. Remember? I hide those!) Okay, back to the amazing Candy Bar Sugar Cookies! If you are looking for a way to get rid of all of that candy, this is the perfect place. My kids adore these cookies and who wouldn’t? Candy! Cookies! While I was typing this I had a great idea. I think it would be so fun to make these cookies sometime after Halloween. Make little plates of cookies and deliver them to your neighbors, the ones who gave your kids the candy in the first place! It would be kinda like a reverse trick or treat! That sounds so fun to me!
