Tomorrow is Halloween and by Friday you may have more leftover candy than you know what to do with. Today, I’m sharing the perfect recipe to use up some of that candy. I’ve also teamed up with a few other bloggers to bring you even more candy inspired recipes. Make sure you scroll down to see more.
Halloween was my favorite holiday as a child. My aunt would pick us up from the bus after school and we would go to her house for an afternoon of fun. We made Halloween crafts and snacks and then went trick-or-treating. After we were done trick-or-treating, we went back to the house, dumped our buckets out on the floor and then traded with each other for our favorite Halloween candy. Snickers was always my favorite, even as a child, so I would trade anything and everything to go home with the most Snickers. I love the creamy nougat topped with caramel, peanuts and chocolate.
So what better way to use leftover Halloween candy than in a warm cookie pie. These Snickers deep dish cookie pies are warm, gooey, chocolaty goodness packed into a small dish. Top it with ice cream and you have the perfect post-Halloween treat.
Just for fun I decided to include a few pics from Halloween as a child. The first picture is my favorite Halloween costume. I’m not really sure why it was my favorite Halloween costume at the time, but I think I wore it a few years in a row. I may have been predicting what was to come because I was actually a cheerleader all through high school.
This next picture is my sister and I sometime in the early 90’s. She was (and still is) obsessed with all things Disney. She is lucky that I decided not to post the one of her in a princess Jasmine (of Aladdin) costume.
