Use up your leftover Halloween candy with these magic layer bars. Any combination of chocolate candy will work. You can even add candy corn if you so desire.
When was the last time you bought the exact amount of candy needed to meet the demands of all the trick-or-treaters that ring your door bell on Halloween? Chances are you either buy too little or too much, with most people landing on the side with excess. Other than picking out all your favorites to hoard, what are you going to do with it all? I say throw it all together and bake it into one glorious mess. With the help of a graham cracker crust and more sugar in the form of sweetened condensed milk this dream is a reality. I introduce to you the leftover Halloween candy bar layer bars. Use whatever assortment you have. In my case it was Reese’s peanut butter cups, plain M&Ms, peanut M&Ms, Crunch, Twix, Kit Kats, Almond Joys, Milky Ways, Snickers, and Hershey’s cookies ‘n’ creme bars. Since 7-layer bars have chocolate, nuts, and coconut I figured that diverse candy selection covered it all with a little extra.

You can make Oreo truffles out of any of the different flavors of Oreo. Try this caramel apple version, dipped in chocolate to resemble an actual caramel apple.
Happy Halloween! It seems fitting that today is also caramel apple day and since Oreo was thoughtful enough to make a caramel apple creme golden Oreo I went ahead and made truffles out of them. I even dipped them in green and light brown chocolate candy coating to resemble a caramel dipped apple on a stick. Or a green buckeye depending on how you look at it.
Fluffy mousse made with pumpkin spice Greek yogurt is a great way to end a fall day. Serve with a spiced cookie.
Holy food coma. Peabody has outdone herself giving Kita and I a foodie/root beer tour of Seattle and I’m not sure if I will ever be hungry again. Doughnuts, fresh Greek yogurt, burgers, lab-style cocktails, Greek food, short ribs, bread pudding, and more pastries galore. I even spent $100 on root beer yesterday, 43 bottles of root beer that I somehow didn’t already have in my collection of 108. Yea, I think I made that root beer store owner’s day. Eventually I plan to post some pictures recapping this adventure but for now let’s take a gander at some mousse. Pumpkin spiced Greek yogurt mousse in fact decorated with chocolate dipped speculoos cookies made out to look like graves because Halloween is this Friday.
