Got some Halloween candy laying around that needs a new home? I’m sharing 50 Recipes Using Halloween Candy!!
I have determined that I have one of the weirdest children on the planet.
He never eats his Halloween candy.
I am 100% certain that I eat more of his candy than he does. It’s ridiculous. It never fails that like a year after Halloween, I find a crumpled up pillowcase in the back of his closet full of dusty mini Nerd boxes and Dum Dum pops and I’m like dude…you have major issues that we need to resolve.
Same with class parties. Just the other day I threw out a paper bag full of Valentine’s Day treats. Who is this kid? Has he learned NOTHING from me?
I finally started repurposing his candy. And by repurposing, I mean baking it up in treats and giving it to friends and neighbors. Because neighbors don’t want your leftover candy in a pillowcase but they DO want cookies baked with candy from your pillowcase.
Life is just weird sometimes.
Here are my favorite recipes using leftover Halloween candy, both from my site and from around the web. Find a few good one and give them a whirl!
