What do you do with all of that Halloween Candy?

Does the Halloween stash look like this at your house? With 4 kids we got a lot and I want to get rid of it all! Throw it away! Until I saw this post from Mommy Cooks. I thought maybe you all could use it too! She has several nice recipes that you could use up that Halloween candy! I'm adding some to go along with hers! Enjoy!
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
40 miniature chocolate covered peanut butter cups, unwrapped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside. Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk. Add the flour mixture; mix well. Shape into 40 balls and place each into an ungreased mini muffin pan. Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from pan.
Almond Joy Fudge
2 (12 ounce) packages semisweet chocolate chips
2 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups (16 pieces) mini Almond Joy candy bars, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
Butter an 8-inch square baking pan.
Line with enough wax paper to overhang 2 sides by 2 inches.In pot, combine chips and milk over medium heat cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is melted and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla extract. Cool 1 minute.Stir in candy bars. Spread mixture evenly in pan. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours. Use wax paper to help remove from pan. Peel off paper, then cut into squares.
Makes 36 pieces.
Finally I think this site has some great ideas for using candy.
