Tasty Thursday: Leftover Halloween Candy

Well, we are 10 days removed from Halloween, but there is definitely a chance you still have some candy leftover from Halloween. I still have a little candy corn left over, but I am running low...which is saddening. Regardless, I find that often times houses are left with mass amount of candy. This can be for a lot of different reasons. Perhaps your house was not heavily Trick or Treated. Maybe your child or you yourself hit the payload this year and reaped the benefits of going door to door (one of my friends said her daughter got six pounds of candy). While eating candy on its own is lovely and satisfying, it's also nice to have a little excitement added to the old leftover candy. So, for today's edition of Tasty Thursday, I decided to offer you some ideas for your candy. Here they are!

Rocky Road Brownies

This pretty much seemed like an amazing idea so I decided to share it. Take a normal brownie recipe and turn it into a rocky road brownie by using some of your extra candy and sprinkling it on top. Add some marshmallows and chocolate drizzle or caramel drizzle on top and you've made yourself a really tasty treat! I'm a huge brownie fan, and if you add your favorite candy on top...oh man! That's a win win right there!

Homemade Mocha

If you are a coffee addict like myself, brew yourself a nice tasty pot of coffee, pour yourself a cup and add a bar or two (mini bars) of chocolate. All of a sudden your coffee has taken on a whole new taste...and that taste is chocolate...and it's amazing. Do it!

Cookie Pizza

This is similar to the rocky road brownies, but instead of using brownies, you make a cookie dough and spread it out to look like a pizza. After that, take some good chocolate sauce and spread it around the dough and then top with some crumbled candy. Bake for about 10 minutes and you've got yourself a taste sweet cookie pizza concoction.

Ice Cream Topping

This is pretty self explanatory. Grab your favorite ice cream, chop up the pieces and stick them on top of the ice cream. Enjoy fast...and then repeat.

So there you go! If you have some leftover candy and looking for some ways to use it, try these options!
