Leftover Halloween Candy?

Candy Corn Chocolate Bites.

I came across this idea on pinterest, and thought it was adorable. I had two large bags of candy corn and chocolate left over from Halloween, and wanted it out of the house! I had to make a snack to bring to an upcoming event so I decided to utilize some of this candy. This recipe is so cute and hardly takes any effort.


1 Bag square buttersnap pretzels

1 Bag Hershey’s Hugs

1 Bag candy corn


Heat your oven to the lowest possible temp. Line your preztels on a baking sheet , placing one Hershey’s hug on top of each pretzel.

Place in oven and cook for only 3-5 minutes, keep watching the chocolate. When it starts to glisten , it should be soft enough. Take out of the oven and place one candy corn on top of each Hershey’s Hug. Set aside to cool and allow chocolate to harden.

*Be careful of other recipes for this snack, some say to heat your oven to 350 or 375 and this is will turn your chocolate into soup!Also do not refridgerate these treats to cool them, the chocolate will turn speckled from the cold.

Crunchy Garbanzo beans

These are a great option for a healthy snack, and are tasty when added to salads. Garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas are high in fiber and protein which make them a great staple for those who are on a vegetarian diet. ┬áThe protein in these keep you full and energized, and the fiber is great for your body’s digestive system! Overall these make for a delicious, healthy snack.


3 cans garbanzo beans

Garlic powder

Sea Salt


Olive oil (to grease pan)

Preheat the oven to 450. Completely drain each can of garbanzo beans, being sure to get rid of all liquid. Evenly spread beans on a baking sheet and season to taste with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Bake in the oven for about 45 mins, rotating the garbanzos occasionally.

You can change up the spices in this recipe to whatever variation suites you, often I will add white pepper to them for an extra kick.

This serves about 6 people.
