What to do with Leftover Halloween Candy

So, this year we had no tick or treaters. Not one. We live in an apartment complex, so we figured we would get some and bought a bunch of candy. And then no one came to our door. Since we are not going to eat a whole bunch of candy by ourselves, I was trying to figure out what to do with it. I remembered last year seeing a leftover Halloween candy bundt cake on Baking Bites, and I decided to go for it.

This cake was really easy to make -- put a bunch of ingredients together, fold in the candy and you are good to go. We used Milk Duds, Whoppers, and Kit Kats because that is what we had, but I imagine you could use anything. I also didn't have a bundt pan (no idea where it went), so I made it it a tube pan and it came out fine. You can see the candy swirled into the cake, although a bunch of it did melt into the cake. It was good, although nothing totally amazing.

I was also glad I could make this because one of the blogs that I follow, the Food Librarian, is making 30 bundts in 30 days to celebrate national bundt day, so I thought I would bake along too. My pictures of the whole cake didn't come out that well, but in case you want to see the finished cake, here it is:

You can find the recipe for the cake here, from Baking Bites.


  1. We also had not one trick or treater this year, but I wasn't as creative. I just sent the candy to school with Philip as a donation to the Student Life stash. Good thinking on the cake!

  2. Whoo hoo! Bundt cake madness! Love it! Sorry you didn't get any trick or treaters...I have been eating all the left over candy all week and really need to stop! Thanks for baking along with me on this crazy project - mary the food librarian
