    Ahhh! I love those ideas! The leftover candy bark is the best idea ever! I might actually get my kids to part with their candy if they know this is what’s going to happen to it.

  • Jeanette

    All of these ideas are pretty good. It’s probably a faster and easier way to get rid of candy. And is in a way that my kiddo would love it because he would be able to eat his candy in a dessert.

  • Nancy at Whispered Inspirations

    I love these ideas and ways to use leftover Halloween candy! Sometimes there can be so much leftover.

  • Sarah Bailey

    Now these are some awesome things to do with let over candy, I am in love with the sound of the kit kat crunch bars I definitely need to try those!

  • Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh

    All of these are really great ideas! Too bad we never have any Halloween candy left over. Haha. I could always buy a bag though to make some of these tasty treats.

  • Erica{MamaAsh}

    Another great Pin to share 🙂 I’ve never heard of Heath bars?! I don’t think I can get them in Canada. I love all these recipes, thanks for linking such great bloggers and their recipes.

    • Jess

      That’s a good question, I don’t know! I’ve never tried one so I honestly don’t even know what they’re like! lol

  • Stephanie Parrell

    I love the idea of the candy bark! I always have so much left over that no one really wants.

  • Angela Ricardo Bethea

    My mouth is watering from seeing all those delicious treats. Surely after Halloween, there’s a lot of left-over candies so this surely did come quite in handy.

  • Amy D

    So clever, I love this round up! I never thought about using leftover candy in cookies and cakes!

  • Ruth I.

    I am now excited for the left over candies that my niece would have! These are delicious and I can’t wait to try them!

  • Michelle W

    Wow, of course we can make revel bars out of chocolate candies. But candy corns in a muffin? I wonder how they taste like. The butterfnger pie sounds delicious!

  • Kathy

    Wow, these all look amazing. I’ll have to give a lot of these a try after tonight. My girls are excited to go out trick or treating tonight.

  • Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place

    That’s really amazing! I think it’s awesome that you’re sharing these recipes. There are sometimes too much candy from trick or treating. It would be nice to make this for the family.

  • HilLesha

    I have never incorporated leftover Halloween candy into a recipe, but I have always loved the idea. Maybe I’ll do this year, though!

  • Up Run for Life Healthy Lifestyle Blog

    You have found some amazing recipes. The candy usually disappears very quickly in our house. Once it is gone, they don’t get any more until Santa comes. 🙂

  • Tim B

    These are some really creative ways to make trick or treating even more fun! Love the idea of taking Halloween candy and using it to enhance baking recipes. Great post!

    I don’t anyone who has leftover Halloween candy. But I am going to have to try the peanut butter kit-kat treats. Two of my favorites in one.

  • Terri Beavers

    Oh my gosh, what a great idea to use leftover candy in recipes. Those kit-kat bars will have to be the first recipe I try. I want to make them all, lol.

  • Anjanette Young

    These are great recipes using leftover Halloween candy. I am looking at 3 bags of candy right now and contemplating the recipe I want to make.

    First of all, I’ve never heard of “leftover Halloween candy!” LOL But if I DID ever have such a thing, these recipes look fantastic!! What a great way to dress up snickerdoodles!

  • Lynndee

    Yum! And I’m drooling while browsing your photos. 🙂 I can’t remember a time that there were leftovers though because our son gobbled them all up. LOL.
