This was the pile of Halloween candy Kalynn had before noon from trick or treating downtown. By the end of the night it had multiplied and by morning I had a mound of chocolate that I didn't know how to contain. It was like I fed a mogwai after midnight and it had turned into something unnatural and out of control.
My brain immediately went into damage control mode and I tried to figure out what the hell I was going to do with it all.
Just eating it seemed so boring.
So I decided to pull out my fancy ice cream maker, whip up a batch of vanilla and at the very end of the churning process I dumped in 2 cups of chopped Kit-Kats, 3 Musketeers, M&M's, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Whatchamacallits.
One of the best things I've ever made.
I also decided to make a left over half Snickers / half Butterfinger cheesecake
(Whoever invented this pie pan is a genius by the way.)
So two cheesecakes and a tub of ice cream has taken out quite a dent in our dilemma.
That being said, we still have an assload to unload.
If you have suggestions, please let me know!
On a side note, it's been freezing cold here. We've been staying indoors, eating chili and crafting. So far we've made a hand print turkey:
The Pinta (or maybe the Nina or Santa Maria)
We've also watched Pocahontas a million times and made our own costume:
I hope everyone is staying warm!
