I couldn’t look a mini chocolate bar in the eye this morning. By this afternoon I didn’t even want one each time I walked past the bowl. What do you do when Halloween candy has lost its appeal? (Or when prices have been slashed by an irresistible 75%?) Chop them up (a post-Halloween massacre) and make cookies. Dress them up, if you will.
While we’re on the subject – has anyone noticed the peanut butter cups aren’t even full-sized anymore? Silver lining: they make great deep dish cookies. This peanut butter dough will turn out both. Or you could use any basic soft cookie dough – oatmeal, brown sugar (as for chocolate chip cookies), chocolate or even ginger.
(Dinner, by the way, was poached eggs on toast and roasted cauliflower. We’re in clean-out-the-fridge-before-leaving-town mode.)
