Candy Bar Cookies

Halloween has past. Since we have an abundant of candy, I decided to add some to my cookie batter. It didn't matter what type of candy bars. I used Snickers, Twix, Krackle, Butterfingers, Gobbers, Oh, Henry, Baby Ruth, Peanut Butter Cups, etc. I could have kept going especially if you want a reason to use up a lot of candy bars from Halloween, of course. I did chop the candy bars pretty good but next time I think I'm going to rough chop the pieces so I have larger pieces. 
Candy Bar Cookies
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp lemon juice
2 eggs 
1 1/2 cup candy bars, chopped

  1. In a food processor, grind the oats to a fine consistency. 
  2. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to the food processor. Pulse for 10 seconds.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, vanilla, and lemon juice.
  4. Add the eggs to the butter mixture and combine until smooth.
  5. Slowly, stir in the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Mix well.
  6. Fold in the chopped candy bar pieces.
  7. Chill the dough overnight.
  8. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  9. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  10. Spoon about 1/4 cup portions onto the baking sheet. Space 2 inches apart.
  11. Bake the cookies for about 16 minutes or until light brown and the middle is soft.
  12. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
