Halloween is over and now you have a bunch of candy in your house. What do you do with it? Of course, you can eat it. But if you want to mix things up a bit, here are some different recipes and activities you can try with your Halloween candy! These are all great recipes that you can do with your kids, so be sure to get them involved in the baking and decorating!
Gingerbread House or Man
This is my favorite thing to do with leftover candy after Halloween. It’s a fun activity for the family, and it allows you to use a wide variety of candy. If you are feeling ambitious, you can make your own gingerbread, or you can buy one of those handy gingerbread houses from the store. I think they have premade gingerbread men too. I’ll be making a gingerbread house in the next few weeks with my kids, so stay tuned!
Everyone likes brownies, so why not try adding some leftover candies ato your brownies! Here is a yummy brownie recipe from Sallys Baking Addiction blog, but you can also use a box if you’re looking for an easier option. My favorite is Ghirardelli boxed brownies, but any boxed brownie works!
I found this delicious looking cookie cake on pinterest. It was posted on a the Baker by Nature blog. Cookie, cake, and candy? Can’t go wrong there!!
You can always substitute chocolate candy for chocolate chips in a chocolate chip cookie. Check out my chocolate chip cookie recipe for yummy cookies!
Ice Cream Topping
Create your own Marble Slab experience! Crush up some chocolate bars and put them on top of your ice cream! Gummies woulld also be delicious!
Worms and Dirt
I love eating the dessert worms and dirt. Here is a dirt dessert recipe you can follow. Instead of putting in gummy worms, you can always put in the left over gummies you get from Halloween.
There are lots of different things you can do with your leftover candy, and these are just a few suggestions. Hopefully these ideas got you thinking about some of your own twists!
