Leftover Halloween Candy? Here's How to Deal
It's been an entire week since Halloween, and all the telltale signs of the passing holiday remain. Some stringy cotton cobwebs still stick to surfaces all over town, sad Jack-O-Lanterns droop on the neighbor's porch and that bowl of bite-sized candy bars sits on the counter, pecked at slowly for weeks.

Here in the Gut Check test kitchen, we have a better solution for the fate of that leftover candy that doesn't involve burying yourself in a shame-pile of empty candy wrappers. In fact, it's guaranteed to earn you some brownie points.

Our variety pack of chocolatey treats includes M&M's, Twix and Snickers. To keep things simple, we opt to insert them into some of the most downhome desserts imaginable, the kind that anyone can make given some inexpensive, common ingredients and a little bit of ingenuity around the kitchen.
First, we divide the candies and chop up the bars into little squares. One could stop here and simply throw these on top of some ice cream and call it a day, but why not take it a few steps further?
