The Theme is: Halloween Candy, Treats & More
(Please share with us your favorite Halloween Recipes
or What to do with your left-over candy!)

A blast from the past! My little guys... Ashlyn, Justin & Kayley (from 1999).

Halloween is so much fun! And the CANDY! Love it! My kids love sorting their candy every year. We pile it up, separate it out, count it and then they even put it all in separate ziploc bags. Then they throw it back in the bowl and usually it never all gets eatin'. So, today I am going to show you some fun things to do with your left-over candy.

Here is my little guy sorting all his candy flavors.

  • Reeses Peanut Butter Cups: Finely chop 6 peanut butter cup and add to 2 cups pancake batter.
  • Rolo Chocolate Covered Caramels: Stir into hot coffee or hot chocolate.
  • Tootsie Rolls: Line a baking sheet with foil and brush with oil, add 3 cups popcorn and 14 candies cut in half. Bake at 350; stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Chocolate Covered Raisins: Mix 1/4 cup of equal parts of mini marhmallows, salted peanuts and the raisins to make a trail mix.
  • Any kind of Hershey Chocolate Bars, Mr. Good Bars and more: Cut 8 mini bars in half and place 2 halves into a Pillsbury Crescent rolls, roll up and bake as directed.
  • Butterfingers: Mix 5 crushed mini bars with 2 cups of softened vanilla ice cream, re-freeze and then eat. 
  • Ideas found from Food Network Magazine - October 2011
I am going to share with you our love of making Candy Pancakes. One of my daughters friends shared this with us about 4 years ago and we've been making them ever since. But first check out my cute kids... with their candy of course.

Ashlyn, Justin & Kayley (a blast from the past)!

These candy pancakes can be made with any kind of candy! Even NERDS! Yep, one of my daughters love making them with Nerds, my little guy loves marshmallows, and the other twin likes Reeses and bananas. Myself, I love chocolate and marshmallows. But really it's all good. Last year camping we made an entire Pancake Bar with loads of toppings and everyone got to pick whatever they wanted.

Favorite Pancake Batter
Any kind of candy

Mix up your favorite batch of pancake batter. Do NOT mix the candy in the batter. Spray the pan with non-stick spray or use butter. Pour batter and then add the toppings in the uncooked side of the batter. Let cook all the way until you see the batter bubbling, then flip. Leave for a few minutes until done. Serve hot with syrup.
