Leftover Candy Cookie Skillet
Wondering what to do with your leftover Halloween candy? Try putting it all together in a delightful cookie skillet. The cast iron will keep the ooey-gooey chocolate from sticking, so this is the perfect recipe for your favorite Camp Chef skillet.
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 12-15 pieces Halloween chocolate candy
- 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350° F if using an indoor oven. Skip this step if using an outdoor oven.
In a large mixing bowl, combine sugars and butter until creamy. Add in the remaining wet ingredients--egg and vanilla. Mix until combined. Slowly add the flour, salt, and baking soda until the mixture starts to look and feel like dough. Add chocolate chips if desired. Divide the dough in half and set aside.
Turn on your outdoor oven to Medium heat. Then lightly oil your cast iron skillet or pie pan.
Spread one half of the dough into the bottom of the cast iron dish, filling the entire bottom. Unwrap each candy bar, and place each them on the layer of cookie dough, pressing down a little to make them stick. If they are larger candy pieces, you may want to break them into chunks. Arrange the candy however you like.
Top the layer of candy with the other half of the cookie dough, spreading over the entire top. Bake for about 35 minutes. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting into slices. Enjoy the chocolately goodness!
