Halloween will come and go, but the leftover candy will haunt you for months to come. Sometimes, it’s better just to get rid of it— and these desserts will help you do just that.
You can use a bunch of candy at once and bake treats to share with friends. Although, these recipes are so yummy that you make wind up just wanting to keep it all for yourself. And I, for one, certainly wouldn’t blame you if you did. Halloween only comes once a year, after all.
