In a few short weeks, the Halloween costumes will be put away, the decorations will be taken down, and the candy will be overflowing. While the kids enjoy collecting as much candy as they possibly can, I dread all the candy in my house. 

Why?

Because I am the one that ends up eating it all! And that is not happening this year. 

I scoured the internet for ways to use up our Halloween candy in yummy recipes. This way, all that candy does not go to waste!
