My favorite blondie cookie dough, loaded with leftover Halloween candy and candy bars, and baked into an ooey, gooey, chewy Candy Bar Cookie Pie!
If you’re staring down a large bowl of Halloween candy that didn’t get handed out to trick-or-treaters, this Candy Bar Cookie Pie is another idea for what you can do to repurpose it. Besides, like, eating it.
I didn’t expect to have leftover candy, honestly, but I should’ve. Did you get a lot of trick-or-treaters? Year-to-year, it is so sporadic for me, I don’t know what to plan for! In 5 years living in my neighborhood, I can’t predict what kind of traffic we’ll get, but I plan for a crowd just in case. Sam’s Club bags of like 200 candy bars. I gave it out by the fistful, but I still have a ton of extra!
This Candy Bar Cookie Pie is the chocolate chip cookie dough version of the brownie pie. Swap chocolate chip cookie dough for brownie batter, and poof.
Both pies are so good. I’m sure your dilemma is deciding which to make. How much chocolate do you want in your life? I love chocolate, although I don’t think of myself as a chocaholic exactly, but that brownie…. it’s spectacular. When I want a massive, ooey-gooey chocolate chip cookie though, this Candy Bar Cookie Pie works like a charm.
The best part of this pie – tied with how chewy the cookie is – is how the candy bars melt and meld with the cookie. They’re everywhere, and they’re melty and gooey.
The next best thing is how quickly you can prep it. With a store-bought pie crust, you can have this prepped in a few minutes. Hot from the oven, with a scoop of ice cream, it’s a little bit of heaven on earth! It will keep you from being so generous to trick-or-treaters so that you have leftovers to make it. 🙂
