In the book, Josh praises these granola-based cowboy cookies as his favorite. "They basically combine every one of my favorite things about every other good cookie into one giant cookie heaven," he writes. We'd have to agree, with one caveat: make sure to use a top-notch granola (homemade or otherwise) in these cookies, as it'll greatly dictate their flavor.

Some candies practically eat themselves, but others, like candy corn, tend to linger after the Halloween festivities have died down. Not to worry. We've got a fun, eye-catching way to upgrade these leftover candies into a treat worth sharing with friends.
