Delicious Ways to Use Your Leftover Easter Candy

Ahahahahahaha, “leftover Easter candy.” Clearly, I mean Easter candy that you buy on your way home from work today at 50-70% off because you have no leftover Easter candy.  One way to use up “leftover” Easter candy is to just eat it.  But where is the fun in that when you could add more chocolate, sugar, and other deliciousness??

Cadbury Creme Eggs are my favorite Easter candy ever – I cannot pronounce 86% of the ingredients, but while I am eating it, I just don’t care.  These Cadbury Creme Egg cookie bars somehow make the most delicious candy just a little more delicious.

 These brookies are loaded with chocolate chips and crushed up Cadbury creme eggs!

These are half cookie, have brownie and all delicious.  You’re welcome.

While my heart will always belong to the Cadbury Creme Egg, the Cadbury Caramel Egg is a delicious candy as well – and one that you should eat.  And, why not eat it for breakfast? The Caramel Egg Stuffed Croissant is, dare I say, a perfect (or at least perfectly delicious) breakfast option.

If you have Peeps lying around (and really, why wouldn’t you?), add a little graham cracker and some chocolate and you have Peep S’mores.  They are as gooey and colorful as you would imagine.

 

And finally, what to do with all of those jelly beans? Well, I have two options for you – breakfast and a cocktail.

For breakfast if you prefer pop-tarts to croissants, try making leftover jelly bean pop-tarts.  he jelly beans become soft and slightly gooey while the tarts are still warm; they form into flattened but soft little sugar lumps when cooled. If you use store bought pastry dough, you will be in a sugar coma in no time.

And, if you see no reason to mess around with breakfast foods if you could be drinking, you should try the Jelly Bean Cocktail.

Bottom Line: There is no shortage of things to do with candy.
