  • I freeze a lot of the candy bars and cut them into small chunks then use those in place of chocolate chips in cookies.

  • Candy-Coated Caramel Apples
    5 medium (McIntosh or Macoun) apples, about 1.75 lbs.
    1 cup(s) candy of your choice, such as mini M&M’s, crushed Butterfingers, chopped Heath bars or candy corn
    14 ounce(s) package caramels
    2 tablespoon(s) water

    1.Insert a Popsicle stick into the stem end of each apple. Place candy toppings on a sheet of wax paper.
    2.Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and mist it with nonstick cooking spray.
    3.Combine caramels and water in a 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth; remove saucepan from heat. Holding it by the Popsicle stick, dip an apple into the caramel mixture, spooning mixture over apple to coat it completely. (If caramel mixture in saucepan begins to harden, warm it over low heat again to soften.)

  • Occasionally I'll make chocolate thumbprint cookies with the small reeses peanut butter cups in the center, or use m & m's for chocolate chip cookies. I have baked chunks of the snicker bars into brownies too.

  • No, but I bet there are some creative moms out there who do.
