Color me remorseful on November 1st. Every year. As I face down a trash can full of Butterfingers “fun size” wrappers I am reminded of why I don’t keep candy in the house.
And it doesn’t help that Noah is not much of a sweets kid (I know – believe me, I know). So I’ve had to get creative with the leftovers, and though there are countless – mostly over-the-top – recipes for using up that leftover candy, this is my very favorite:
Mainly because it couldn’t be simpler – just melt a bag of whatever kind of chocolate chips you have lying around, and plop your candy on top. A quick chill, chop it up and there you have it.

You’ll note that there are no Butterfingers……
12 ounces white, milk or dark chocolate chips (can use more or less, or an equivalent amount of chopped chocolate)
assorted Halloween candy – chopped if needed/desired
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat; set aside.
Melt the chocolate in the top half of a double boiler set over barely simmering water. Pour the melted chocolate onto your prepared baking sheet and spread into an even layer. Tap the pan to level the chocolate and create a smooth surface.
Place the candies atop the chocolate and chill to set. Cut or break into pieces.
