7 Delicious Ways To Use Up Halloween Candy

It might seem like the most obvious question in the world. What do you do with Halloween candy? Eat it, of course! But why just snack on your fun size candy bars when you could go even further? Get creative with these seven ideas. 

1. Bake them into cookies

Skip the chocolate chips and pour M&Ms into your cookie dough instead. If you're feeling especially industrious, you can chop up other candy bars with a kitchen knife and stir them into the batter as well.  

2. Whip up the sweetest fondue

Gather up pretzel rods, cookies, fruit, and anything else you'd like to dip in chocolate. Then, put your favorite leftover chocolate candies in a slow cooker and put it on low. Soon, you'll have a hot and gooey fondue that you'll love dipping into!

3. Create candy bark

Melt chocolate bars in the microwave and carefully pour the mixture onto wax paper. Sprinkle on nuts, coconut shreds, or more candy -- it's your bark! Let it cool and then break into pieces.

4. Transform vanilla ice cream

The ice cream machine isn't broken at your house! Just add some vanilla ice cream and some of your favorite candy to the blender, pulse, and enjoy a soft and swirly combo of candy and ice cream. 

5. Mix your goodies into popcorn

Sweet and salty treats are popular for a reason -- they taste so good! Save some candy for your next movie night. Just pour them right into the popcorn bag and shake it up. Voila! Salty-sweet perfection.

6. Transform your Starbursts into 'shot glasses'

Keep things sweet by fashioning these tasty cups out of melted and hardened Starburst candies. You can fill them up with juice, sherbet, or even ice cream. And if you're of legal age, you can fill them with other beverages, too. Here's the recipe.

7. Add some pizzazz to your Rice Krispy treats

Who says you can't invite chocolate to the Rice Krispy treat party? Pour in crushed or chopped candy while your marshmallow goo is still warm and stir. You'll be rewarded with an ooey, gooey, decadent treat.
