Serves: 12-16
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup assorted Halloween candy, roughly chopped
  • cooking spray
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper, allowing it to hang over the sides. Coat the paper with cooking spray.
  3. To a large bowl, using a hand mixer, mix together the melted butter with the sugar and light brown sugar until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix on low, until combined.
  4. Stir in the flour and salt until just incorporated - no need to overmix. Stir in ½ cup of the assorted Halloween candy.
  5. Pour the cookie batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top, then sprinkle the remaining ½ cup of Halloween candy over the top of the batter.
  6. Bake 30-35 minutes until done.
  7. Let the pan cool completely then remove the cookie bars, using the parchment paper overhang, cut into 12-16 squares and serve.
