Trick or Treat

Yesterday was Halloween. It was pretty awesome. I took my 14 month old baby girl out trick or treating for her first time. She loved it, I think, and she definitely got a ridiculous amount of candy. Her bucket is full and it is honestly WAY too much candy for her to ever consume. So I started thinking of ways I could use up her candy instead of just gobbling up. I remembered that there are a few recipes I have been dying to try and now I have the perfect excuse. Here are a few recipes I stumbled upon that all my Halloween candy will make great use of:

Snickers Salad
(Someone made this for me once and it was DELICIOUS!)

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (12 ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed
  • 6 Snickers candy bars
  • 4 -6 granny smith apples (you can vary the apple with successful results if you choose to, but I would NOT recommend a soft va)


  1. 1
    Mix cream cheese and powdered sugar until thoroughly blended.
  2. 2
    Fold in Cool Whip.
  3. 3
    Cut Snickers into bite size chunks and add to cream cheese mixture.
  4. 4
    Chop the apples into chunks and stir.
  5. 5
    Chill 1 hour before serving.
  6. 6
    Chilling for a long period of time (such as overnight) will result in liquid being released from the salad.
