On our street, we usually have to buy 300 pieces of candy every year to make sure each trick-or-treater who comes by can get at least one piece. We never have leftovers, but for everyone else, there are several things to make with leftover Halloween candy and save yourself from moving that plastic treat bucket from table to table in your house. Some of these recipes are so delicious that I almost want to take advantage of the Halloween candy sales the grocery stores undoubtedly have, just so I can make some of these mouth-watering goodies. There are recipes using Reese's, Butterfingers, Whoppers, Kit Kats, Snickers, M&Ms, Reese's Pieces, and even the most controversial Halloween candy — candy corn.
But even I, the most avid candy corn hater, would probably have to try the candy corn bark recipe below because there are pretzels included mixing your salt and your sweet. Yum. My Memaw would be so proud. So if you have more Halloween candy than you know what to do with, and you can pry it from your kids' hands, you should totally make these decadent treats. I have a feeling your kids won't be too sad to give up their candy for it to be repurposed into something as delicious as these desserts.

I'm one of those folks who hates candy corn with a passion, and it's always leftover in my stash.
