What to do with left-over Halloween Candy?

Did you get less trick-or-treaters than you expected?  Maybe your kid got way more candy than you'd like them to consume?  Here are some ideas for ways to use up the Halloween sugar!

I recently read some ideas in a Parenting magazine for ways to use up left-over Halloween candy while helping you consume some more healthy ingredients along with it.  I couldn't find it on their website, but here were their ideas...

Banana Split - split a banana lengthwise, fill it with whipped cream, and top with crumbled peanut butter cups.

Candy applesauce - crush lollipops and sprinkle over applesauce.  As your kid stirs, the colors in the candy change the colors of the applesauce!

Mini Chocolate Fondue - Microwave a few chocolate bars in the microwave and serve with some fruit for dunking.

Post-Halloween Pudding - Make a low-fat version of pudding (with skim milk) and stir in bits of Snickers or Milky Way before you chill it

Spooky Snack Mix - Combine nuts, dried fruits, cereal, pretzels, etc with small candy bits like candy corn, jelly beans, or M&M's.
I personally have no problems with simply consuming all Kit Kat bars in their natural state, however, here is a delicious looking cake that uses Kit Kat and Reese's Pieces

Here are just a few more recipes I found on my favorite recipe site, Allrecpies:
