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!

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.
