We spent an entire month celebrating Halloween, but now that it’s November, it’s time to pack up our cobwebs. But what will we do with all the leftover sweets? We found some fabulous recipes to turn Halloween candy into fantastic desserts. Maybe you didn’t get enough trick-or-treaters this year, so your candy bowl is still overflowing with Twix. Or maybe your kids brought home way more candy than they can eat. Whatever the reason, these tantalizing desserts will put your Halloween candy to good use.

1. These Powder Puff cookies hide a secret Hershey’s Kiss surprise.


These simple, white cookies are a perfect way to use any extra Hershey’s Kisses lying around. You can find the recipe at Averie Cookies here.

2. These fancy Biscotti will totally class up your candy corn.


Candy corn is probably one of the hardest candies to find a second life for, but this biscotti recipe is genius. It balances the sweetness and chewiness with the crunch of the almond-y biscotti. Find the recipe on Food Nasty here.
