Baking with Leftover Halloween Candy

Happy belated Halloween!

I missed Friday’s link-up with Cynthia, Courtney and Mar, because I was working all day, then I had to run to Party City to replace my wig which I couldn’t find (tip: don’t go to a Halloween or costume store on Halloween, what a mad house!) and then after a couple of years of only doing Halloween Fun Runs, Pablo and I actually headed to a Halloween party!

Can you guess who we were?

Tell me about it, Stud!Our costume was super easy and I always love wearing a wig and transforming into character. Oh, and there was a lip syncing competition, which we entered and won!

Sandy and Danny

Replicate the look:

  • Sandy: red heels, black tights or pants, black shirt, blond wig and fake cigarette (I wrapped a piece of paper).
  • Danny: black shoes, white socks, black pants, black t-shirt, leather jacket, if you have one.

Because I was running around, I missed many of the trick-or-treaters and ended up with a gigantic bag of leftover candy, so I decided to also get creative and do some Halloween Baking.

Yep, I did a lot of baking this weekend!

Luckily we had a DC Triathlon Club Spooky 10K Relay to go to and I brought along all my baked goods, otherwise I fear Pablo and I would have eaten it all! I didn’t run the race, because of my hamstring injury, but I went as a Photograph-Arrrgh and took lots of fun shots of the runners.

  1. I took William trick or treating for the first time! Ok it was for like ten minutes because it was so cold! 🙂 The school where I teach is collecting leftover Halloween candy for Operation Gratitude – they will send it to our troops overseas!

  2. Great idea for the leftover candy — however, I was able to pass out all of mine to the Halloween revelers. But, I may be able to get my hands on more -I only have one son who is still trick or treating, but he brought home a TON . . maybe more than his bodyweight, lol
