Still have some left over candy from Christmas?

Try chopping them up to bake a batch of cookies! They can make for a very special dessert for Valentine’s Day, along with a little note saying,

“Here’s a sweet treat to help show you that you’re everything to me!”

Plus it’s a great way of emptying your junk food cupboard and recycling the candy into something new and delicious!

1.     Start by preheating your oven to 350*

2.     Unwrap as much chocolate candy bars as you would like to put in. Some people have more of a sweet tooth than others, so use your best judgment to know what’s going to satisfy your taste buds. I chopped up       cookie candies 7 Hershey’s fun-size Snickers, 3 Nestle Crunch mini bars, 2 Nestle milk chocolate mini bars, and 2 Twix fun-size bars. 3.     Stir together 3 cups of RAINY DAY FOODS ALL PURPOSE FLOUR, 1 teaspoon of RAINY DAY FOODS BAKING SODA, and ¼ teaspoon of RAINY DAY FOODS REAL SALT. 4.    In a separate bowl, cream together 1 cup (2 sticks)of butter,   3 eggs, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and 2 cups of RAINY DAY FOODS WHITE SUGAR.              [caption id="attachment_1848" align="alignleft" width="150"]bosch blending the cookie dough bosch blending the cookie dough[/caption] 5.     Gently pour the flour mixture into the creamy batter and mix well.

Let cool a couple minutes before transferring them to keep them intact.   [caption id="attachment_1852" align="alignleft" width="150"]cookie balls cookie balls[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1856" align="alignleft" width="150"]cookies baked cookies baked[/caption]    

Or if you’re short on time, you can bake leftover surprise BARS!

Just pour your batter in to a greased cake pan and cook for about

26 minutes or until golden brown and tooth pick comes out clean (minus the chocolate from your candy pieces).
