Whether you bought too much for the trick-or-treaters, can’t resist the post-holiday sales or, ahem, are “helping” your kids work through their stash, you may end up with some extra Halloween candy. “Extra?” you might ask. “What is this concept?” Well, friends, it does happen. To some of us.
If you’ve already had your fill of eating it as is, you should consider repurposing the surplus. Here are six recipes from our Recipe Finder that are so good you might be tempted to plan on extra candy.
M&M Bars, above. Customize these with any type of M&M you have around. They would also be stellar with Reese’s Pieces, or even other broken-up candy bars.
Monster Cookie Dough. Don’t buy overpriced edible cookie dough from the store! Make your own and use whatever candy/junk food you have lying around the house.
White Chocolate Unicorn Bark. Here’s another trendy, colorful treat. The gummy candy or jelly beans are optional, but why would you leave them out?
Crispy Toffee Cookies. Calling Heath bar fanatics — this is one you’re going to want to make. Feel free to bake the cookies now while you have the Halloween stash and save them in the freezer to eat around the holidays.
Good Stuff Eatery’s Milky Way Malt. Top this outrageous dessert with a handful of Whoppers.
Chocolate Pudding Pie. This showstopper uses a shower of Heath or Snickers bars for a garnish. It may seem like an involved recipe, but the steps are fairly straightforward.
