Oh, Halloween. Time for sugary sweets and spooky spiked punch. This haunted holiday makes me happy. You know what else makes me happy? Candy trail mix.

Candy Trail Mix: What to do with Leftover Halloween Candy

ground Snickers

Snickers alone are pretty awesome. But there's nothing quite like getting a handful of Snickers, Twix AND M&M's all in one bite. I like to dice up my Halloween treats and make a candy trail mix out of it, so I get a plethora of perfection in every handful.

Adding the dates makes me feel like I have a legit trail mix as opposed to just a bowl full of candy, and the blended nuts add some texture in there and stick to the cut candy pieces so it doesn't all just become a sticky mess.

Tell me, how does your family make this holiday their own?
