The Halloween Hangover is upon us. Now that all the trick-or-treaters are gone—or maybe you just helped yourself to your kid’s stash—what will you do with all that Halloween candy? A few of our favorite ideas include Peanut Butter Snickers Pie, Butterfinger Cookies and more.

With the No-Bake Deep-Dish Peanut Butter Snickers Pie, you have no excuse not to use that leftover candy, which is made almost entirely from store-bought ingredients. Make a crust from chocolate sandwich cookies and then layer Cool Whip and cream cheese with peanut butter. Top the whole thing with crumbled Snickers and Trader Joe’s caramel sauce.

Cram as many Halloween candies as you can fit into these Leftover Candy-Stuffed Brownies. This brownie recipe is adjusted with less sugar and fat to accommodate the Halloween treats.

If there’s a candy bar you really hate, say Butterfinger or Heath Bars, try chopping and mixing them into a standard chocolate chip cookie dough, like these Butterfinger Cookies.

The Kit Kat Cake gets a spooky twist in the Spooktacular Halloween Candy Cake. Black licorice and Reese’s Pieces are swapped for Kit Kats and M & M’s. If you really want to go all-out, make an orange-and-black zebra cake to celebrate the Halloween spirit.

These Mini Reese’s Cheesecakes are so cute that you have no excuse not to eat one. Peanut butter cheesecakes are topped with chocolate ganache and chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for a decadent treat.
