Halloween Treat Swap Meet ~ Halloween Cookie Bars

I have a special treat for you today, no pun intended:) I got together with a bunch of bloggers to bring you a Halloween Treat Swap Meet! I am guesting over at Kim’s blog while she is here on mine giving you a tasty treat you can make for Halloween. All the links for the other bloggers in this fun swap meet are at the end of post. I hope you enjoy Kim’s post! It made my mouth water! 🙂

Hey y’all. My name is Kim and let me just say I’m so happy to be Guest posting here at Crafty Meggy.

I <3 COOKIES! I don’t think I’ve ever met a cookie I didn’t like. Just some, (OK, A Lot) that I like better than others. 😉 Today I am sharing an “old” favorite with a twist. Toll House® Cookies. (Yes, the same ones your mama used to make for you.) Only today I’m making them all Hallo-Weenie by using NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Halloween Morsels and Reese’s Pieces®. Now that I think about it NESTLÉ® and HERSHEY® may balk at my using competitor ingredients in one recipe but they’ll get over it. Right? (I guess I’ve gone and got NESTLÉ® Chocolate in Reese’s® Peanut Butter and Reese’s® Peanut Butter in NESTLÉ® Chocolate. Oh My! 😀 )

Here’s How I Did It.

The Dry Ingredients

In a small bowl I mixed together the flour, baking soda and salt.

The Wet Ingredients

I put the butter (or margarine), sugars, vanilla and eggs in the bowl.

creamed wet ingredients

I creamed the butter, sugars, vanilla, and eggs together.

mix the wet and dry ingredients

I added the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and continued mixing to combine.

add in the candy

I added the Halloween morsels and the Reese’s pieces into the bowl and folded them in with a spatula.

spread into the pan

Then I spread the mixture into the prepared pan.

sprinkle with more morsels and candy

Then I sprinkled on the remaining morsels and pieces and placed the pan into the 350* oven for about 20 minutes.

The finished product

This is how they looked when they came out of the oven.

These cookie bars were Cowboy and Ham Boy approved! Who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate? I hope you’ll try these cookie bars soon and let me know how you enjoyed them.
