Have Your Cake
And Apple Cider, Too

Instead of diving into your kids' trick-or-treat bags after they hit the hay on Halloween night, why not make better use of all those delicious candy bars as toppings for a scrumptious apple cider cake?

Think your kids will mind if you snatch a few of their MILKY WAY® candy bars from their Halloween haul? Not if you promise to share a slice of this ooey-gooey apple cider cake. If you plan ahead, you can even surprise your kids with this dessert before they go trick-or-treating. Why? Think of it this way: With a tummy full of this cake, they will be less likely to gobble down handfuls of candy corn and gummy candies as they hit the door-to-door trail.
