Leftover Halloween Candy Recipe (part 1): Milk Duds & Butterfinger Cookies

Well, Halloween at our house was a bust. Literally ZERO trick-or-treaters. I was so sad! Not to mention all the candy I purchased, meaning my pants were going to be even more sad than I was. LOL

We did get to go to pull off our awesome couples costume at a friend's party though. Can you tell who we are? Think 1980's: There is no Dana, only Zuul. 
That's right! We were the Keymaster and Gatekeeper from Ghostbusters! Overall, I think we did a pretty good job. And can I just get a shout-out for my husband and the awesome helmet he made?! Who knew he was so crafty?!
Once we recovered from the party I realized I didn't want all that Halloween candy in the house, knowing full well that we'd eat it all. Soooo, I decided to make cookies and send them to friends! Genius! 

1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups all purpose flour

1.) Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. 

2.) Beat butter, sugars, vanilla extract and eggs until creamy. 
3.) Add your dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt) and beat until combined (do not over mix). 
4.) Prepare your leftover Halloween candy to be gently folded into the batter. 
5.) Shape into round balls and bake for 9-12 minutes.
