Getting Rid of that Extra Halloween Candy

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays—though I think I love it more now than I did when I was a kid. Dressing up is so much fun, and let’s not forget all of the candy! Whether you end up getting free candy or you buy the candy to give out, you somehow always end up with a ton of leftover candy.

You can call your friends over and just eat all of the candy on its own. Or you can make your girls work for it and use that candy to make some awesome desserts! Then you can show everyone what a great baker you are and you’ll be able to make all sorts of friends because let’s be real: who doesn’t love a sweet treat?

(Or you can just eat it all yourself. I’m not here to judge.)

I took it upon myself to scour the Web and find some great recipes for all of that leftover candy. Enjoy!

1. Kit Kat Brownies

Kit Kats are these amazing little chocolate bites and they immediately bring you back to your childhood. Folding chunks of the candy into brownies is a brilliant idea! Check out mom.me for the recipe!

2. Candy Corn Pretzel Bites

If you buy candy corn and claim that you’re going to share it with your friends, chances are you’re just lying to yourself. I’m of the belief that at least 80% of the human population doesn’t like candy corn, so here’s a fun idea on what to do with all of the leftovers! For the recipe, go to livewellbakeoften.com!

3. M&M’s Crispy Pretzel Bark

Who doesn’t love M&M’s? Smother it in chocolate, throw in some crushed up pretzels for a salty element, and you have a perfect snack for movie night! Find out how to do it at domesticsuperhero.com!

4. Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups has always been my favorite candy of all time. I was always excited to spot the Reese’s in the candy bowl when I was trick-or-treating as a kid. So if you’re feeling particularly ambitious, try out this cheesecake recipe! Get it at tasteofhome.com!
