Candy Loaded Oatmeal Cookie Bars

These candy loaded oatmeal cookie bars are a favorite around our house! Our candy loaded cookie bars are super quick, just mix and dump into a pan, and bake! They’re super versatile and always turn out perfectly! I find myself making these right after Halloween or other holidays with all the leftover candy I have! But these are not limited to Halloween and are wonderful year-round.

Switch up your candy and Mix-ins!

For my candy loaded oatmeal cookies photographed here I used a mix of Reese’s peanut butter cups, Hershey’s milk chocolate with almonds, Snickers, and semisweet chocolate chips! But feel free to mix it up! I even sometimes make these with just chocolate chips if I don’t have any leftover candy lying around!

Ideas for mix-ins:
  • Reese’s
  • Snickers
  • M&Ms
  • Twix
  • Chocolate chips—white chocolate, peanut butter chips, dark chocolate, semisweet, butterscotch
  • Heath bar
  • Peanuts
  • Almonds
Don’t Like Coconut?

No problem! You can make these cookies bars strictly with oatmeal. Just replace your 2 cups of shredded coconut with an additional 1½ cups old-fashioned oats.

Also checkout our recipe for homemade butterfingers for another way to use some of your leftover Halloween candy!

Enjoy!
