Halloween is around the corner and if you are like me, you are probably scrambling to come up with something fun and easy.  I joined with #CollectiveBias to share with  you a fun and easy recipe using candy I got from Walmart!  Also don’t forget to check out Flavorful Moments for more creative ideas!

Halloween Cupcakes

I have always enjoyed eating Nestle Crunch, however my parents limited all the chocolate candy I ate growing up. So that meant whenever I got a chance to eat Nestle Crunch, I ate so much. Oddly enough, I never got tired of eating it.

Growing up, I loved going to birthday parties because I could eat all the candy I want without my parents knowing.  One time at a birthday party, there was a pinata and it was my turn to hit it. Oh boy, I hit it so hard and all the candy went flying everywhere. I threw my bat and grabbed all the candy I could. I didn’t realize I hit another girl and my mom made me give my candy to her. I was so sad because it was all the good candy like Butterfingers and Babe Ruth.

Looking back, I’m very thankful my parents limited all the candy I ate, because now I really enjoy eating it.  One of my favorite things to do with the Nestle Chocolates is bake cupcakes or cookies with them!
