Use Leftover Candy Corn to Make Candy Bars!

Personally, I don’t mind candy corn – though the pumpkins are my favorite – but I know it’s not everybody’s favorite. However, now that Halloween is over, I’m here to share how you can turn some of that leftover candy corn into candy bars!


I actually just learned about this one; it was at the adult summer camp that I attended in September. However, I got to try it out and it’s so yummy, so I highly recommend if you’re a fan of Butterfingers. Plus, these aren’t as hard to bite into.

Since I don’t have the exact recipe the chocolatier used when I was at camp, I found one online that’s the same ingredients (just with the actual measurements, since that’s what I didn’t have), and you can find that here.


I don’t know where I first heard about this, but it’s been a few years now, and it’s something I’ve been telling people about ever since.

To make a Payday, you don’t have to do any sort of baking, and measurements really don’t matter. How awesome is that?

Grab a bag, or just use your hands if you’re desperate for some candy, and mix peanuts and candy corn together (probably about an equal amount of both) and then eat it up. Eating these two ingredients together gives you the wonderful taste of Paydays! It’s like magic!

    I really love your idea of using the candy in a clever way! (otherwise it can hang around for a while, and then I eat it.. all!) This is a nice post to make something a bit more exciting with it!

  2. I wonder if my husband would like this…he loves candy corn. We didn’t really buy any this year but I am sure we could get some on sale now! (I think our teen would love these though)

  3. What a great idea!! (Got anything for tootsie pops? Hahahaha.) We tend to eat all the good stuff (Twix, Snickers, etc.) but we have lots and lots of suckers left over!! Ha!

  4. I like to make something with leftover Halloween candy too! I like to make chocolate chip cookie bars or cookie pie and throw in chopped up candy!

  5. I’ve never heard of doing this and it sounds fantastic! I wish I had some candy corn right now! I haven’t actually gotten any this year!~

  6. I’ve never thought to combine candy corn with other things, but the Payday sounds really good. I actually like candy corn, and my boys are begging me to buy a bag. I’m waiting until it goes 75% off on clearance, then it’s all theirs 🙂

  7. Yay! Great way to “upcycle” candy! I like candy corn in small portions every here and there–sounds like it’d be great in a candy bar! 😛
