Leftover Halloween Candy Recipes
Friday, November 02, 2012
Halloween is definitely national "ruin my diet" day. Sure, the holidays are awful too, but those little fun size candy bars are just so cute and little (and delicious), it's so easy to look down at the foil wreckage in your lap and realize you've just destroyed 20 of them in one sitting. My skinny jeans are NOT happy with me at the moment. At my house we always end up with a ton of extra candy, and it's the gift that just keeps on giving. My strategy this year is to use all the leftover candy in other recipes and give them away to anyone that comes over. UPS guy comes for a delivery? Here, have some M&M cookies. No really, TAKE THEM. Friends come over for dinner? Send 'em home with a plate of Snickers brownies. It's the perfect plot. Here are some delicious looking recipes that feature leftover Halloween candy... and sure, maybe I'll have a few myself too...
