Leftover Candy Hand Pies

By Kelsey Banfield |


These were the last things I made with the already huge pile of Halloween candy in our kitchen. The rest that we collect today is being donated and a small portion kept for us. To make these super fun hand pies you simply wrap up any kind of chopped up candy in a pie crust and bake them like a pop tart. We thought they were so incredibly awesome that my daughter asked for them again and I had to say no. We’ve had enough candy for one month!

Leftover Candy Hand Pies

1 pie crust (store bough is fine)

Leftover candy, chopped

1. Preheat the oven to 425F.

2. Cut the pie crust into strips and fill them with the chopped candy. Pinch the edges and top closed and cut at least one or two slits in it to allow steam to escape.

3. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.

    Gee! I thought all these candies will just be put to waste…Thanks for coming to the rescue. I love that I can use store bought pastry. (Only for times that I am not in good terms with my rolling pin LOL!!!) I love your post! This is what the world needs, more recycling and very creative recipes…Keep it up!
