11 Recipes Starring Halloween Candy So You Can Make the Most of Your Leftover Stash

Tell me I’m not the only one who’s sick of Halloween candy. I know, I know — the nerve! The heresy! Who am I to speak of our beloved candy corn like that? But let’s face it: There are really only so many ways you can shovel Reese’s pieces into your mouth. After that, well, it’s all downhill and sugar-fueled Netflix binging from there.

Now that we’ve put away the pumpkins, let’s get creative with our leftover haul. I want you to think outside the wrapper, to fold candy into your brownie batter, to crown your most epic cupcakes with Kit Kat bars. Here’s the best part: With all that Taylor Swift-level baking, you can even pretend to be a respectable grown-up — you know, while stuffing your face with Butterfingers. Ready? Halloween comes only once a year, so let’s make our candy count.
