Leftover Halloween Candy Recipes A house full of bags of mini Milky Way and Snickers bars, Gobstoppers and Nerds is almost a necessary evil this time of year. But after the trick-or-treaters have come and gone, what’s a cook to do with all that leftover candy? First, consider reducing your haul — by U.S. Census estimates, most of the 24 pounds of candy we consume annually is eaten around Halloween. It’s time to get creative. Indian Corn Truffles Pamela Braun of My Man’s Bely.com makes these truffles from Indian Corn, the candy corn that’s brown, red and white — which has a more chocolate-y taste.

Easy Mac and Cheese Muffins Recipe Creamy Garlic Alfredo Sauce {My Go-To Dinner Saver!} - StumbleUpon I am not (not!) exaggerating when I say this quick, creamy garlic alfredo sauce has changed how I view non-dinner nights. You know. The problem is, on nights like that, I just can’t handle the thought of dinner approaching and knowing I’m going to have to scrounge up something my kids will eat but I’ll probably find gag-worthy. Enter this sauce. We’ve made this no less than 10 times in the last month, and I have never, and I mean never, seen my kids gobble up anything so quickly. Embarrassingly, I have to admit, this sauce is even on the menu this week. Creamy Garlic Alfredo Sauce Note: I've only ever used 1% milk in this sauce and it works great for our tastes. Ingredients 2 tablespoons butter 3 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed through a garlic press 4 ounces cream cheese, softened and cut into 6 pieces (see note above) 1 cup milk (see note above) 3 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (about 1 cup) 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt, more to taste, if needed Directions

A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor. Ingredients 1 package Oreo Cookies, regular size 1 package Mini Oreo Cookies, for decoration (optional) 1 package chocolate cake mix (mix according to directions on box) 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), room temperature 3 3/4 cups powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract cupcake liners Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread — Joy the Baker - StumbleUpon I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair. I know it’s not fair. I know that now you’re craving cinnamon rolls, and cream cheese frosting and chili fries and hot dogs. You don’t deserve this sort of torture. This bread hits all the comfort spots in my soul. I’m sorry and you’re welcome and I love you. Let’s start at the beginning. I did this all without the use of a stand mixer and dough hook. This dough can be made and left to rise , then refrigerated overnight for use in the morning. This is the dough just before it’s left to rise. After the dough has rested and risen for an hour, I knead it in a few tablespoons of flour. This is the part in the bread process where you can wrap the dough and place it in the fridge to rest overnight. I worked with my dough right away. I can’t even deal.

Homemade Mac and Cheese Bites Author: Nikki These are so simple and the perfect finger food ideal for serving kids and as an appetizer! These are DELICIOUS! ½ pound elbow macaroni 2 Tablespoons butter 2 Tablespoons flour 1½ cups milk 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese 2 ounces cream cheese ½ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon pepper 1 egg beaten Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Calzone! - StumbleUpon Uh-oh…this calzone shouldn’t be a calzone. Nope. It totally should be a picture of a pizza…topped with layers of ricotta, melted mozzarella, cubes of roasted butternut squash and broccoli rabe. That was the plan. This pizza was supposed to convince me that broccoli rabe isn’t this gross, bitter leaf situation…well that failed. I was gonna post it anyway, thinking some of you lunatics actually might like it…but I dunno…looking at the pictures of the pizza bummed me out, so I decided to turn the leftover ingredients (from the pizza) into something more awesome!! Meet this calzone… Have you ever noticed that Taco Bell works with, like, 10 ingredients. And then they just re-invent different burrito crunches, XXL chalupas, etc. with those same ingredients–it’s pretty genius. Their chefs kinda remind me of those people that you can hire to come over and look in your closet and pair your already existing clothes together, creating brand-new outfits. Calzones remind me of those taco bell inventions.
