Repurposing Halloween Candy

There are some creative ways to get rid of your candy. I’ve seen ways to trade it in for money at dentist’s offices and healthy snacks/food at health stores. Here’s a nother way to get rid of it in your frugal baking. If you have an abundance of candy and choices, here are a few ways to shake things up and save a bit of money while you’re at it.

(This is my husband’s favorite I make once a year for his Dec. 5 birthday. Guess where the candy comes from?)

Have you noticed the theme here? Anything chocoloate can be substituted with chocolate bars from Halloween. So get creative, have fun in your kitchen repurposing your kiddos Halloween candy. When they asked where it went, just show them your creative snacks and desserts.

What do you do with your Halloween candy?

    Thank you for posting the Ice Cream cake recipe, Jackie. It came just in time for our little family. I was planning to preorder an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins for my son’s upcoming 4th birthday in Dec. I hadn’t gotten to it yet because I was waiting until I saved up a bit of money for it and it was closer to Dec. The next few months we always have some large expenses (property taxes, holidays, etc) so anywhere I can save some money helps us. This ice cream cake recipe seems very easy and doable for me to make for my son. I am really excited to try it. I have everything here in our pantry to use, except for the ice cream and whipping cream. Both easy to pickup in the meantime and I figure for $7 tops, compared to the $35-$40 I would have spent on the store cake….big time savings! Plus, I can customize the ice cream and decoration to fit my son’s requests. I can not thank you enough, so tremendously helpful!!
