We love Halloween for the trick or treating (emphasis on the treating), but it’s also one of our favorite holidays for getting creative in the kitchen, especially with our little monsters. Wondering what to do with leftover Halloween candy? We’re huge fans of repurposing it into devilish desserts. From creepy candies to spooky sweets, try your hand at these three easy Halloween recipes.
Plus, stock up and save big on Mars chocolates this week (ends Sunday, 10/22).
How delicious do these decadent brownies look? You can customize them from creepy to cute depending on your mood. We made them even easier by starting with our best brownie mix, Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix, and decorating them with M&Ms and sprinkles.

These are really fun to make with the kids and make a silly surprise to greet visiting ghouls at the door. To start, top Oreo cookies with M&Ms. For the legs, you can use strips of licorice or Twizzlers. For an extra crunch, try pretzels.
Spooky Snickers Bites

Snickers are a Halloween bestseller, but instead of just chomping them down on the couch when the kids aren’t looking (no judgement), try this treat instead. Grab some fun-size Snickers and poke them with colorful sunflower seeds and candy eyes. You can make them as spooky or as goofy as you like!
