There’s going to be a lot of candy around. Either you’ll have bought too much and there weren’t enough trick-or-treaters. Or you’ll have your own trick-or-treaters’ loot to deal with for the next month. OR you went to the drug store on Halloween day and were tempted by the 75% off sale, you loaded up your basket and now you have 300 fun-size Snickers on your counter. So what are you going to do with all of it? Before everyone eats all of the good stuff, make a new treat out of plain old Halloween candy.
When I ended up with too much Easter candy last year, I made Leftover Easter Candy Bark — it’s a super easy way to recycle the candy you’re sick of into something totally new, and it works just as well with Halloween candy. It’s also a fun trick to break out at a party; it will look way more impressive than the wrapped-up candy in the bowl, but really, it’s pretty much the same thing. Plus, it’s an appropriate and grown up way to enjoy all of your favorite candy at once, without shoving a bunch of mini candy bars into your mouth.
