Leftover Candy Ideas

Not that you guys have any more candy lying around…but you know it you do…Leftover Candy Ideas!

I know, I know…this post is probably a day late and a Snickers short…but I needed to do it anyway.

While there might not be anymore Reese’s left in your candy dish…I know you have handfuls of those “bite sized” Milky Ways and individually sized packages of M&Ms floating around. Trust me, I know.

So in case you were just in desperate need of ways to get rid of them, or actually turn them into something way more special than an ant’s size bite of candy bar I’ve got you covered…


1. Candy Stuffed Ritz Crackers..this one is PERFECT for those itty bitty bite size candies! Smush them int between two buttery Ritz and call it a day. A good day.

2. Homemade Peanut Butter Cup Candy Bars I used cereal actually in these…but I also threw in some mini peanut butter cups. So if you were smart and hid those, you’re golden.

3. Ice Cream Sundae Brownies The perfect reason to make brownies.

4. Cookie Sticks Simple and delicious! Great for lunch boxes too!!

5. The Best M&M Cookies Enough said.

6. Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard Whoopie Pies Again, peanut butter cups… but you cold totally sub in other candies for the cups.

    Amazing list! It’s only 10 AM and I’m already craving candy…today’s gonna be a loooong day 😉

    This list is heaven. I am feeling a little light-headed just thinking about Snickers Salad. What have I been doing with my life, before Snickers Salad entered it? Nothing worthwhile, I’m sure.
