On the off chance that you have not eaten all of the Hershey’s miniatures from Halloween, you can use those candy bars in baking.

Sandy Knight at Wake & Bake in Jacksonville uses candy in her creative, oversized cookies. For instance, she might mix Reese’s Pieces into her triple peanut butter cookies. She also uses a variety of candies in her Garbage Pail cookies. Knight saves leftover candy as she goes. She grinds up the bars in a food processor, and adds the pieces to a freezer bag. She doesn’t keep different candies separate, she just mixes them all up together. When she’s ready to bake cookies, she measures out the mixed candy pieces and stirs them into the dough.

At Mad Hatter Cakes in Jacksonville, owner Carol Watts has been cooking up candy-bar cupcakes. If she’s using a chocolate candy bar that will melt, she cuts it in big chunks, then sticks a chunk in the middle of each cupcake before baking. She chops up a few of the chunks into smaller pieces and sprinkles them on top of the frosted cupcakes. Watts also takes Butterfinger candies, chops them finely in the food processor, and stirs the pieces into the cupcake batter.
