Whether you stayed at home and handed out candy, or accompanied a little ghost or two trick or treating, every year we're hit with a seemingly never ending collection of various candy. Yes, it's easy to just gobble it up at any time of the day (we won't judge), but it's even more fun to use it up unexpectedly! Here are some creative ways to use up your acquired treasure:
1. Halloween Candy Bark
The beauty of this stuff is that you can use any (I mean, ANY) Halloween treats on hand. We used candy corn, M&Ms, Kit Kat and creepy candy eyeballs, but the sky is really the limit when it comes to this chocolate bark. Get the recipe here.
2. Ice Cream Tacos
Ice Cream Tacos are really the dessert-lover's dream. You can mix up any toppings you like - so if you decide you want some crushed up Twix on your ice cream taco, nobody will say no. Get the recipe here.
3. Kit Kat Cheesecake Brownies
Yes, this is real. Yes, this is delicious. Seriously, you can substitute Kit Kat for any other chocolate you got in abundance - or mix and match a couple different kinds. Get the recipe here.
4. Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats
These are seriously adorable, and will use up all those random Tootsie Rolls. Get the recipe here.
5. No Bake Monster Balls
It can't get much easier than these Monster Balls. No baking necessary, mix this up with Smarties or M&Ms. Get the recipe here.
6. Cookie Monster Fudge
This will put those snack-size packs of Oreos and chocolate chip cookies to good use. Get the recipe here.
7. Butterfinger Dessert Lasagna
Yet another chocolate dessert - you can never have too many. This "lasagna" is creamy, chocolate-y, and oh so yummy. Get the recipe here.
8. Reese's Ice Cream Cake
Who can resist chocolate, peanut butter, and ice cream? This cake is the perfect Halloween after-party. Get the recipe here.
9. Fluffernutter Rice Krispies
Yet another use for Reese's pieces, but you can mix it up with any other chocolate candy. Rice Krispie treats are just so versatile! Get the recipe here.
