Halloween Candy Recipes

When Halloween is over, parents sympathize with the teachers who have to deal with their sugared-up kids after trick or treating. Then they realize they have to deal with the same sugar craze after school.


Some communities have candy buy-back programs. Dentists will pay $1 or 2 per pound, or other organizations will put on that type of event. Yet the best way to get rid of extra Halloween candy lying around is to incorporate it into your regular baking and cooking schedule.


Here are some of the best recipes for using up your leftover candy.

Snickers Salad


There’s no lettuce or veggies in this salad, but there are apples. Caramel apple Snickers salad is delicious, and it’s a crowd pleaser at potlucks. Try it here.


Kit Kat Cheesecake


If Snickers bars aren’t your favorite, try using up your Kit Kats from that trunk or treat you went to. Make these mini cheesecakes for your next family dinner or just to surprise your family for a regular dinner night this week.

Reese’s Dip


Some people can’t resist peanut butter and chocolate together. It might even be a better combo than PB&J.


This peanut butter cup cookie dough dip combines that classic pairing with a party dip that no one can resist.


Grown Up Candy


For the adults, sometimes we like our candy in liquid form. Why not change up your nightcap by adding some Halloween candy? This Sour Patch Kids Vodka recipe is a great way to try something new and use up that sugary stash.


Rainbow Popcorn


If you prefer the rainbow, Skittles popcorn might be for you. Try making a sweet treat to munch on throughout the week with your leftover fruity candy.


All the Leftovers


Sometimes there isn’t enough of one type of candy bar to make a whole recipe. If that’s the predicament you’re in, give this cookie bar recipe a try. It combines all the leftover candy into one delicious treat, so you can use it all up in one go.
