Dessert Recipes To Make With Your Leftover Halloween Candy

It's the best part of Halloween.

Let's be honest, when it comes to Halloween we're only in it for the candy. Sure, the costumes are fun, the parties are good and trick or treating is amazing, but at the end of the day, it's all about the Halloween loot. Snickers, Reese's, Almond Joy, Three Musketeers. We don't discriminate this time of year, we'll take them all.

As a child, getting the biggest stash of Halloween candy was a source of pride, but as adults it moves beyond pride into sheer excitement. The best thing about having an overload of booty is that you can use it to make the following recipes. Even if you've already done your fair share of Halloween cooking, you won't regret the effort you put into making these sweet treats.
