If your kitchen is overflowing with Halloween candy, you'll need a few recipes to use up your leftover loot while satisfying your sweet tooth. This week on "In the Pantry," Aida Mollenkamp shares three of her favorite ways to use leftover candy. Just don't try them all at once!
Melt a bit of leftover chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler. Mollenkamp recommends using dark chocolate to counteract the sweetness of whatever candy you decide to use. Spread the melted chocolate on a rimmed baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper for easy cleanup. While the chocolate is still warm, top it with your favorite Halloween candy. Set the baking sheet aside so the chocolate can cool and harden. Slice it into squares and serve — or save it all for yourself!
SweeTarts Milk Shake
With a few simple ingredients, you can have a thick and creamy milk shake with a tangy bite. Mollenkamp recommends blending strawberry ice cream, milk, and a handful of SweeTarts for this completely over-the-top post-Halloween treat. "You're already on a sugar high, so you might as well commit," she says.
Twizzlers Snack Mix
Mix your favorite popcorn with something salty and sweet. Mollenkamp combines pretzels, Twizzlers, M&M's, and popcorn in a large bowl. “Pair the snack mix with your favorite Halloween movie, and you're good to go,” says Mollenkamp.More on Yahoo Shine
