After-Halloween recipes

Everyone knows what the day after Halloween means. For children: copious amounts of trick-or-treated goodies kept in a sock drawer so Mom can’t steal any Reese’s. For the less-fortunate, too-mature-to-knock-on-strangers’-doors (a.k.a. tried and failed): lots of cheap candy up for grabs. In honor of the post season, I’ve compiled some easy recipes to take full advantage of the discounted sweets.

Candy Melts

Use any leftover candy/nuts/pretzels/fruit/really anything!


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment (or use a disposable tin)
  2. Melt candy chips according to the directions on the bag (or use regular chocolate melted in a double boiler)
  3. Spread melted chocolate on sheet
  4. Wait for the chocolate to cool a little, then break up your candy of choice and sprinkle it on top
  5. Refrigerate for at least an hour
  6. Break up and enjoy!

Chocolate Biscuit Puffs

These are so easy to make and surprisingly amazing!

Who knew, with so few ingredients!


  • Refrigerated flakey layers biscuit dough
  • Any small pieces of chocolate (I used Hershey’s Kisses)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp sugar


  1. Open dough package and break each biscuit in half.
  2. Place chocolate in the middle of each half, pinch to close, and roll into balls
  3. Mix cinnamon and sugar together
  4. Dip each ball into the sugar mixture and place on an ungreased baking sheet
  5. Bake at 350° until golden brown, about 7 minutes
  6. Enjoy while warm!
