I don’t know about you, but I love Halloween candy. I don’t have kids, nor do I live in a neighborhood where kids trick-or-treat — and yet I buy candy for trick-or-treaters every year just in case. Of course, this means that come Nov. 1, I’m left with a bag of fun-size Snickers bars and a whole bunch of gummy worms. Not a bad spot to be in.
The thing is, I usually burn out of eating my leftover Halloween candy a few days into November. It’s delicious, sure, but even the best things get a little old after a while. Last year, I made a bunch of cookie dough with chunks of my leftover chocolate bars mixed in. I kept it in the freezer, and when a cookie craving struck, I just baked off as much as I wanted. It was excellent, and I highly recommend you do the same.
When it comes to non-chocolate candy, though, baking isn’t always an option. Luckily, things like Twizzlers and Sour Patch Kids actually make great cocktail ingredients. Don’t believe me? The 11 candy cocktails below are fun and easy and will help you use up your leftover Halloween candy before we’re even two weeks into November.
