It is hard for me to believe that Halloween is this Thursday. I don’t know why, but it always seems like each year that October – December turn on to fast forward.

I though for this year,  it would be fun to do recipes that you can use leftover Halloween candy for – if you happen to have any left !  If not,  then when you see candy on clearance after Halloween, you just may want to pick up the right kind of candy to make some of these amazing recipes!

First up are Butterfinger cookies. My family isn’t a huge fan of Butterfinger candy on their own. They will eat them but they prefer to have them in ice cream. I thought they just might also like them in cookies.

These cookies have a nice peanut butter base with the addition of oats, butterfingers, and milk Chocolate chips.

The butterfinger cookies were a hit. I took some to a party. I was asked by some of the guests there if they could take some of the extras home. My husband even loved them! He does like butterfingers but is not a fan of peanut butter cookies!
