It’s the day after Halloween and you’re left with stashes of popular candy such as M&M’s, Peanut Butter Cups and Snickers Bars that your kids have brought home. What in the world do you do with all that candy?

Here are 12 sweet ways to transform them into decadent desserts. Now I’m not suggesting you swap one type of sweets for another to give kids – these delectable baked goods would make great hostess gifts, potluck desserts, office treats – or surprise someone (e.g. your mailman, neighbor, or favorite local business). They will thank you for the sweet treats and you’ll be happy to ease off the temptation at home.
