Have some extra candy lying around? If you (or your kids) haven’t inhaled the inventory from your Halloween outings here is a fun way to incorporate some leftovers.  This is my grandmother’s recipe so even if you don’t have extra candy lying around it will still be delicious 😉


the motherchic oatmeal cookies


1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup chocolate candy (Reese’s or M&M’s)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Beat together in a stand mixer the butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla.
  3. Add the flour, salt and baking powder until mixed together. Don’t over mix it.
  4. Add the oatmeal and stir together.
  5. Finally add the peanut butter m&ms’s and stir to combine.
  6. Drop the batter by tablespoon onto cookie sheet and bake for about 12 minutes until lightly browned.
