   Many people end up with tons of left over Halloween candy and they don’t know what to do with it. On Pinterest there is a recipe for some cookies that have candy corn and chocolate chips in them.
The ingredients are:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Cornflake Crunch
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup candy corn (about 7 ounces)
Take a small bowl.  Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt all together. In the bowl of a mixer, beat the butter and sugars at medium- high speed until light and fluffy, 4 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. At low speed start adding in the dry ingredients, then beat in the Cornflake Crunch. Mound 1/4-cup scoops of dough 4 inches apart on parchment–lined baking sheets. Flatten the cookies a bit and put them in the refrigerator until firm.  It may take about 3 hours or so.
When it gets close to time to cook the cookies, preheat the oven to 375°. Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, for 15 minutes, until browned around the edges but still a bit pale in the center. Let cool completely on the tray, then serve.
