Getting a big bag of Halloween candy is definitely one of the most fun parts of autumn. But you don’t have to just eat those fun-size candy bars in their normal form -- there’s a whole world of other recipes you can make using your Halloween goodies! Here are just a few that you can try out that are sure to be crowd-pleasers.
Step aside, traditional cookie flavors. Adding a few of your favorite Halloween candies to the mix will take your dessert game to the next level! It’s totally worth the wait time while they bake in the oven. (And you can’t forget the oven mitts, of course!)
Is there ever a bad time for a brownie? Of course not. But Halloween could become your new favorite time to eat a candy-filled brownie (we’re drooling just at the thought!). This recipe will change the game. Wash it down with a nice big glass of Maryland’s state beverage, milk! We’ll provide the glass.
No Bake Halloween Candy Cheesecake
Of course, not everybody feels like baking (or maybe your quarantine baking attempts have ended in disaster -- we get it). Luckily, you can still indulge in a sweet Halloween Candy dessert that’s so scrumptious, you might never go back to your oven. Say hello to this no-bake cheesecake recipe that is stuffed with candy goodness.
This, too, requires no baking. All you need to do is melt chocolate chips in the microwave if you don’t want to use the double boiler method, then add candy as desired. We’re loving the suggestion to add chips to the mix for a little bit of salty along with all that sweet! Surely you can sacrifice a few of your precious Utz chips for this one.
Halloween Candy Ice Cream Sandwiches
This one couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is scoop your favorite ice cream between two cookies (which, you know, you can buy at the store). Then, roll the sides of the ice cream in your favorite crushed Halloween candy. The recipe specifies Snickers, but there’s no reason you need to stick to just that candy -- go wild!
