Happy Halloween!!! Tis the season for adorable rugrats dressed in various fun costumes. The season for drunken college students and child-less adults to find the perfect (or the easiest) costume and partyyy. The season for Michael and I to be cranky because our perfect family (his family) costume idea* was foiled (by lack of participation from a couple members as well as lack of party for us to go to). Most importantly-the season for LOTS and LOOTS of candy! Whether you're collecting, handing out, or buying up the 50% off candy the day after---chances are...you've got some candy in your possession. Maybe...too much candy? Maybe you need something to do with that candy?
You're in luck! I've rounded up 10 recipes from the blog that are wonderful ways to incorporate your leftover candy...and really...just tasty in general. Any excuse to bake, if you ask me!

*For those who are curious---Michael, myself, and his family were going to dress up as the homunculi from Fullmetal Alchemist (a show that Michael and his sister Shannan and brother Christopher are particularly into). The homunculi are essentially the 7 deadly sins-Michael was supposed to be wrath and I was assigned lust (seriously...not my call. She was cool though so no complaints). It would've been awesome. *le sigh*
