Every year on November 1st, I realize 2 things. The first being that my favorite holiday is officially over, and the second being that I bought way too much Halloween candy...yet again. Thankfully for me (and the candy industry), I'm not alone. I've found some fabulous recipes and crafts ideas to help get rid of all those Halloween candy leftovers, and just in time because I don't think I could eat one more piece of candy corn.
If you're like me, anything and everything chocolate flavored was the first thing to go in the Halloween stash. But, if you're not as much of a choco-holic as I am, chances are you still have some mini Crunch bars or Hershey Kisses laying around! Put them to good use and make these delicious Candy Bar Caramel Corn from How Sweet It Is. The ingredients are pretty simple, and I love that it uses air-popped popcorn for that light and crunch flavor!
Is there such a thing as a candy coma? If there is, I'm pretty sure these Peanut Butter Snickers Brownies would be the cause. I've most certainly never said no to a brownie before, and why start now! This recipe from Two Peas and a Pod is almost tempting me to go out and buy some more candy just to make these.
Pork and candy? Definitely something worth trying. While most bloggers are using their leftover candy to make some sweet desserts, Special Fork Blog decided to whip up this Sweet and Sour Pork dish using Sour Patch Kids! They have some other great ideas for using your candy in a dish, like making Caramelized Soup using Sugar Babies. I'll take candy at any meal!
Before you throw out all your leftover candy corn, it's definitely worth it to give this craft a shot. If you couldn't already tell, we love festive and seasonal wreaths. Candy corn is the perfect left over candy because it's also a popular Thanksgiving treat. This Candy Corn Wreath from Hello Jack is really the perfect way to get rid of your extra candy corn while getting a head start on your Thanksgiving decorations and favors.
