Halloween is just around the corner and that means lots of Halloween Candy. You can only eat so much candy without trying to find ways to use it up. A few years ago I made Candy Bar Brownies and Twix Frosted Brownies and now I have another recipe for you to use up some of your favorite candy. This is also great for a Halloween Party.
This recipe is so easy because you can use all store bought ingredients. Or you can make your own sugar cookie dough and icing. You can even change up the colors of the icing.
Halloween Cookie Cake (Use Up Halloween Candy)
- Roll of Sugar Cookie Dough (or make your own)
- 1 container of white icing
- Food Coloring (Neon green and orange is perfect)
- Your favorite candy
Preheat your oven to 350*.
Spread the cookie dough on a circular pan (like a pizza pan). Bake about 12-14 minutes.
Let the cookie cake cool completely before adding the icing.
Grab 2 bowls and put 3/4 of the icing in one bowl and the rest in another bowl. Add the green food coloring to the bowl with more icing. Then color the icing in the smaller bowl orange. (Mine was more of an apricot color.)
Take a plastic sandwich bag and put it inside a small cup securing the bag over the sides of the bag. Add the orange icing to the bag and set aside.
Add the green icing to the sugar cookie. Then sprinkle it with your favorite candy.
Snip the corner of the plastic bag and pipe the icing over the cookie cake. Get creative and make it look like a spider web or just make a zigzag pattern.
This recipe is so simple and customizable – so have fun with it! When your kids bring home bags of candy – pull out this recipe and you can surprise them with a fun treat.
