Recycling (or not) comes with a lot of guilt. No matter how many wine bottles and milk cartons you save, you never feel as though you're doing enough. So here's some recycling you'll like—post-Halloween cookies. Chop up the candies and tuck the pieces into cookie dough in lieu of chocolate chips. Almost any candy will work—Butterfingers, Heath Bars, Milky Ways, Snickers, Kit Kats, M&Ms and even Twizzlers, gum drops, and jelly beans. Standard chocolate chip cookies become immensely more interesting, and the kids will have fun guessing what bits of candy are hidden within.
