Candy Casserole

I could probably make millions if I could come up with a recipe book which incorporates using six pounds of candy to conjure up a fantastic family meal.

After staring at the bags of candy littering my living room floor, and wondering what in world we are going to do with it all, my brilliant book idea came to mind.

"The Day After Halloween Recipe Book" would included 101 ways to make a healthy dinner for your family using fun size Snickers bars, gummy spiders, and Sweet Tarts, among other candies and goodies.

Cheesey-peanut Beefaroo- Feta cheese, a pound of ground beef, and peanut M & M's

Cookie Broccoli Casserole- can of cream of chicken soup, frozen broccoli, shredded chicken, and Twix bars.

Confetti Salad-Mixed salad greens, pretzels, and grilled chicken, sprinkles with Skittles, Runts, and Nerds.

Pasta Prima Butterfinger-Elbow macaroni tossed with sausage slices, bell peppers and Butterfingers and alfredo sauce.

I have a whole host of other idea, but you'll have to wait until the recipe books comes to a store near you.

When my roommate and I used to go to tailgates at UGA, we'd always take "salad". "Salad" consisted of every kind of M&M mixed together in a bowl. Very healthy.

Believe it or not, I heard some recipes on NPR today to make use of the not-so-popular candy. Check out The Splendid Table (Lynn Rosetta Casper). They actually sounded decent!

annie's salad sounds good though!
