15 Recipes for Halloween Candy

I haven’t gone trick-or-treating in at least two decades, but my affinity for all types of candy has never waned. As a kid, I would come back from trick-or-treating and dump out my pillowcase full of candy on the kitchen floor, digging through my treasures to pick out my favorites. I always rejoiced over the full-size peanut butter cups (naturally) and thought very carefully about how I would ration my candy-eating over the coming weeks. My mom would allow us to eat one piece of candy when we came back in from trick-or-treating, and then the rest had to be put away for another day. If your neighborhood was anything like ours, your kids come home with an insane amount of candy. If you’re looking for some ideas of what to do with all of that leftover candy, check out the recipes below. They all use some sort of candy or candy bar as an ingredient, and there are even a couple of recipes for homemade versions of favorite pieces of candy!
