After Easter, we have so much candy, so I decided to make cookies to use it up. My kids loved them! I used Butterfingers®, Snickers®, Hersheys®, M&M's®, and KitKats®. Next time I am trying Starburst®, Skittles®, etc. Have fun with it.

  • Drop spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are light golden brown, about 11 minutes.

This is so versatile. You can use cake flour instead of all-purpose.
