Halloween Pics and Ways to use up Leftover Candy

I love Halloween, I really do. It's a fun holiday, we love carving pumpkins, making fun treats with the girls and taking them trick-or-treating. But I'm also glad it's over with now haha, we've had some sort of Halloween-ish activity going on for the past several days now and I'm tired. The kids stayed up too late last night (then got up at the crack of dawn today..why?), thankfully they didn't go overboard with the candy and we're all in agreement that they can have 2 pieces each day and that's it!


Are you feeling the candy overload too? I think even with rationing out a couple pieces each day, we'd still have enough candy to last them until January...yuck! Maybe not quite that long but it sure feels like it. I think we'll be giving away plenty so it's not a temptation.

Last year I made this really yummy candy bark and sold it at our farmer's market, it went over really well right before Halloween. It's very easy to make and you just might be able to use up some extra candy.

These Butterfinger blondies are equally as delicious! Another great way to use up some of those candy bars.

Last, but not least....I know you'll love these Reese's krispies as well! What's not to love about chocolate and peanut butter mixed into a crispy rice cereal?

Okay, I lied. I have one more to share. How could I forget about this one? It's probably one of my most favorite, if you decide to try any of these recipes, it has to be this one! This creamy Snickers dip is literally to die for.

I sure hope I gave you some good ideas to use up some of that candy stash. I'm sure you can always just give it away, but I think these are a little more fun....especially when you share with others.
