Looking to get rid of your leftover Halloween candy? Check out this recipe for Oh Henry Popsicles or make them with any type of candy.
Every Halloween, we end up with mountains of Halloween candy left in our house. After Halloween parties and trick-or-treating, it feels like there are bowls of candy and chocolate in every corner of the house. I hate letting good food go to waste, but there’s a limit to how much candy I can eat before it goes bad! So today I’m going to share with you a unique way to use up your Oh Henry candy by creating these Oh Henry Popsicles.
Trick-or-treating is one of my favorite activities in our neighborhood, and I love seeing everyone get dressed up and involved in the fun. Did you know that trick-or-treating actually dates all the way back to the 17th Century in Britain? Since the 1920s, it’s been really popular in the US, and I know the kids in our neighborhood always look forward to this night. Instead of candy, in the past kids used to receive nuts, coins, or toys. It was also common to receive home-baked goods – that’s a tradition I’d love to reintroduce!
I’m really excited this year to decorate the entryway to our home ready for visitors. I’m thinking about creating a Halloween wreath and carving some spooky pumpkins in preparation for the big night. I love looking up amazing pumpkin carving designs online for inspiration, and I’m always so impressed by people’s creativity and skills!
I always have bowls of candy ready to share, and I love seeing the younger kids’ adorable costumes. However, I always seem to overstock with treats and end up with so much leftover! I love to come up with creative ways to use leftover food, as I hate putting anything edible in the trash. Candy and chocolate can be used in so many different ways, such as melting the chocolate down into recipes or for decorating bakes. I love creating cupcakes and brownies using candy, and these are an easy way to get rid of any bulk bags you have leftover.
Although we’ve entered into the fall now, I love having popsicles as a quick afternoon treat or light dessert. These Oh Henry popsicles have only three ingredients and are so simple to make. If you don’t have this type of candy to hand, it can easily be substituted with M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces, or any of your favorite treats.

This year flew by and I can't believe we're already at my favorite holiday, Halloween 👻. #ad I promised my little pumpkin @reesealvarado that she could pick out decorations for our new house so we headed to @partycity to scope out the selection and savings. We also created a youtube video to take you along on our shopping adventure. I love #partycity for holiday decor because you get #morepartyfor less. Their prices are affordable and they make shopping easy. We were able to decorate our front door with super cute and spooky items all for less than $60! They also offer in-store, online and curbside pickup so #YouBooYou and shop how you feel comfortable. #halloween #trickortreat #creepy #spooky #halloweenparty #hauntedhouse #halloweendecor #pumpkin #fall #autumn #october #spookyseason #halloweendecorations #arizonablogger #mombloggersofig #mombloggers #halloween2020
I also love that this recipe involves no cooking or heating. Just blend the ingredients together, pour them into the molds, and pop them in the freezer! It really does take just ten minutes to create these delicious popsicles. By the next morning, your popsicles will be frozen and ready to enjoy. This recipe can be substituted with literally any ingredients, so get creative and you’ll have a sweet treat on hand for when you next need an afternoon sugar rush. You’ll have to let me know what candy you choose to make these popsicles with. I’m already excited to get my Halloween candy stockpiled so that I can enjoy making these Oh Henry Popsicles after Halloween!
