Learn What To Make with Your Leftover Sweets! 10 Leftover Candy Recipes

If you have young kids who trick or treat, do you end up with a completely ridiculous amount of candy on November 1st? We do. Big time. I don’t think I’m super strict about limiting how much my boys eat, but I don’t want them to get sick and how much candy can two little kids actually consume? After a few days of eating a few pieces a day, the bags of candy get shoved in the cabinet and forgotten about until I find them in a year or so.

This year, I’m going to put some of that candy wealth to work with these recipes perfect for leftover Halloween candy! Now, I happen to be partial to chocolate candy and don’t have much use for that fruity stuff, so these recipes are all about favorites like Kit Kat, Twix, Snickers, Reese’s, etc. The good stuff. Let’s get to it!

This week I’m thinking about costumes and candy, but¬†Saturday will be November and I’m going to switch gears to thinking about Thanksgiving, Christmas, and holiday shopping.¬†When do you start your holiday shopping?
