It all started when we had leftover Halloween candy in our home. I know, it is shocking really that we had not eaten it all yet. The truth is, my mom dropped off her extra Halloween candy and we found ourselves on round two of left overs. That is when I decided to try something new – make cookies with candy.
I’ve seen people put Snickers in salad & Reeses in brownies, so I thought I would put Milk Duds in cookies. Peanut butter, chocolate, & caramel all go together right? Yes is the answer. I pulled out my traditional Peanut Butter Cookie recipe and just shoved Milk Duds in the middle. Easy, simple, and oh so yum!
I also used the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® because now it is made from real, simple ingredients – 100% taste, 0% artificial preservatives! I love taking unhealthy things and making them a bit healthier. Like keeping my ingredients natural and simple (expect the Halloween candy – that is just a special treat.) I also love using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® when making cookies because I don’t have to think ahead to soften my butter – it already is!
