Halloween Candy Recipes

Halloween Candy

I’m not the only one with three gallon buckets of Halloween candy in the kitchen, right?  I know.  Ridiculous.  Some of it we’ll save to toss at the annual Tiny Town Christmas parade, and some of it went in the Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes, but there’s a lot of good chocolate that we really must do something tasty with!

We’ll be bagging it up and stashing it in the freezer to make some of the following goodies.  With the holidays coming up, there’s always a potluck or family get together where we can share sweet treats.  These are some of our favorites!

Salty Sweet Party Popcorn


Blue Ribbon Monster Cookies


Milk Dud Cookies

If you don’t have Milk Duds, chop up a Snickers bar.  Yum!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

If you don’t have the mini’s, chop up the regular size and make a regular “flat” cookie with the chunks!

Skor Cake

Just as delicious topped with Butterfingers!

Turkey Treats


Layered Chocolate Pie Dessert

What do you do with all that Halloween candy?!

  1. We have a program here where local dentists will buy the candy back ( either for $1 a pound or discounted dental services) and send it to the troops. Win-win!

    I try and keep candy out of the house because it’s too tempting! Although crushed up candy bars make great sundae toppers!

    • WE love to stir it in ice cream, too. We did the troops program when I was teaching, but they wouldn’t take chocolate because of the melting factor.

  2. Great recipes! We usually have a family “Blizzard Night” where we make homemade versions of the Dairy Queen blizzard. Each person gets to choose their favorite candy and the kids love to chop or crunch them up themselves.

  3. We don’t get a lot of Halloween candy (allergies) – but my mom used to make this candy-shoppe pizza for us when we were younger! It’s a wonderful way to re-purpose that Halloween candy in a couple of weeks:


  4. I take a family sized brownie mix, add the ingredients the box calls for and then I add about 15 fun sized candy bars, chopped up, to the batter. Bake as directed. SO good!

  5. Those look so good- I’m glad I don’t have any halloween candy! I would have eaten it already anyways 🙂 and thankfully I’m not hearing the whiny question “Can I have some candy?” All day long. Double win!

    • We still laugh about the year we packaged up all the candy after the kids went to bed Halloween night and hid it. They NEVER ONCE asked for it! Crazy! Had a blast collecting it all and then forgot all about it. 🙂

  6. This. THIS is what I have been looking for all week. I have GOT to do something with all this!!
