Leftover Candy Bark Toffee Bites

Thank you for sharing!

My kids were actually excited to give up their Halloween candy so I could make this awesome toffee bark. LOVE!

In order to convince my 13 year old dynamo that there’s no reason to eat all of his candy on the NIGHT OF, we came to a compromise some years ago–I would make some yummy things just for him from his leftover candy. His favorite is my Leftover Candy Bark Toffee Bites. He can get a little bit of like 10 different candies in one yummy crunch. I get to ration a bunch of candy that, otherwise, he’d be making himself sick on in the night (he did that on our first Halloween together because I didn’t know any better). So, we’re all happy.

Please note, this is not an “allergy-friendly” recipe like most of those you’ll see on the blog. Let me be straight-forward here, I’m not a “nothing in the house EVER can be anything that might cause an allergic reaction” kind of mom. There’s a lot of that out there and if that’s what you thought I was, I’m sorry. My son is not affected by any food-allergies and so, I let him indulge every now and then on things that the other people in the house just aren’t going-in for. So comes Halloween. There are few treats my daughter or I can have, even my husband, but my son can (and will) eat any treat handed to him. So, rather than punish him, this is his holiday to really get some of the treats he wouldn’t otherwise get on a regular day.
