Leftover Halloween Candy?

What do you do with all that leftover Halloween candy? Do you have some recipes to share that you use it in? In the past I have used lots of it in cookies and cakes. M&M's make good substitiute for chocolate chips, cut up peanut butter cups work well also. What is yours?

When my boys were small our neighborhood was so generous with the candy they would come home with those large bags overflowing! They were allowed that night to eat all they wanted, but they would have candy all winter because after that night they were limited to how much at a time they could eat. We also would share it with other people that didn't have such a generous Halloween night.

You can chop up chocolate bars and stir them into your favorite pancake or waffle batter and cook as usual!

Chopped chocolate bars also make a nice trifle - In your trifle bowl or another glass bowl layer cubes of poundcake or angel food cake, prepared chocolate pudding, thawed frozen whipped topping and chopped chocolate bars. Refirgerate about 1 hour before serving.

I have to such thing as leftover candy. ROFL!!

But if you do have some, make cake mix cookies or brownies for the chocolate, peanut butter or types of candy bars.

For things like Nerds and other fruity candies, you can use them as toppings on cupcakes or birthday cakes. If they are still fresh, use them to decorate cut-out cookies for Easter since they are so colorful.

White or milk chocolate covered candy corn would make perfect bunny ears for cookies. lol!!
