6 ways to use up your leftover Halloween candy

Halloween is officially over, and after last night's trick-or-treating, you probably have a big bag of candy just sitting around, waiting to be devoured. But if last year is any indication, you'll have a few pieces every day, and then the rest will go to waste once it goes stale, and you'll come home from school one day to find out Mom has thrown it out.

This year is going to be different. We found the perfect recipes for you to use up all your leftover Halloween candy so none of it goes to waste. That way, there are no more tricks, and all sweet treats. 

Twix Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars
Okay, that's a mouthful (both in saying that name and in every delicious bite). And your fave Halloween candy, cheesecake and cookie dough? Talk about a dream combo. You can even use premade cookie dough, so the most challenging part will be preparing the cheesecake layer. But don't worry, every second will be worth it.

Crazy Halloween Blondies
This recipe is essentially exactly what it sounds like. You make the blondies (or brownies, if you'd prefer), and then the crazy part is adding as much candy as you want to the top before baking. Try M&M's, pretzels for a bit of salt, your favorite candy bar, even candy corn. They'll turn out colorful and fun, and best of all, delicious.  

Chocolate Peanut Butter Kit Kat Crunch Bars
Chocolate and peanut butter is pretty much the Betty and Veronica of candy. And when you throw Kit Kats in the mix, it's bound to be ah-mazing. The best part about these bars is that they're no-bake, so you won't even have to turn on the oven to get your fudgy fix.  

Halloween Candy Cookie Cake
You love cookies, you love cake, so of course you're going to *love* this cookie cake recipe. From chocolate bars to Whoppers to everything in between, there's room for it all on your giant cookie.

Candy Corn and White Chocolate Softbatch Cookies
Candy corn is possibly one of the most controversial Halloween candies. You either love it or hate it. But if you are like us and love this sugary fall treat, this cookie recipe is perfect for you. The dough is super soft and buttery, perfect for the girls who can't stand crumbly, tough sweets. 

Halloween Candy Bark
This recipe is for the cooking challenged. All you have to do is melt and spread some chocolate (the recipe calls for chocolate chips but throw some leftover Hershey's in there, girl!) and then chop up your favorite candy bars (Twix, Snickers, Reese's Pieces, Reese's Cups, you name it).
