Recipes for Leftover Halloween Candy: Twix Cheese Cake Pie

Twix Cheesecake Pie

With all that leftover candy, Halloween doesn't have to end at 12am November 1st. This is one of several recipes for all that candy.

Let's Talk About Twix!
Twix is one of the popular candies, in general and during Halloween.Twix is made up of a cookie center, caramel topping and coated in chocolate.

I remember amidst the three bags of candy I'd bring home when I was a kid, twix was plentiful. This hub features a recipe that'll please your family and use up a good portion of those twix.

A Bit About Twix:

  • Did you know Twix has dual citizenship? The candy bar, though owned by an American company (mars Inc.) debuted in the UK in 1967. It didn't come to the United States until 13 years later.
  • Since it's debut there have been 30 varieties of Twix, including: Twix PB, Twix Coconut, Dark Chocolate Twix, Triple Chocolate Twix, Twix Tea Breaks, Twix Minis, Cookies N' Cream Twix, Twix Mint, Twix Cappuccino and Twix Xtra.
  • Until 1991 when Twix became the universal name for the candy bar, Twix was known as Raider in many other countries.
  • One package of Twix is 284 Calories. 125 of those calories are from fat.

Popular Twix Slogans
You may remember some of these...

  • "Pause like you mean it" (US 2010)
  • "Need a moment? Chew it over with Twix" (US 2000s)
  • "Twix, it's all in the mix" (US 2000s)
  • "Two for me, none for you" (US 1990s)

What a great idea to use up all those leftover sweets(candy) - I particularly like the skittles meringue. They sound quite unusual but absolutely delicious. Having said that, as I love all the sweets you've mentioned we'll just have to have a go at them all!!!

Many thanks for sharing these great ideas! Voted up + awesome!

First of all thank you for the follow. Second, I'm going to try some of these this year. I am too old for Halloween now but my niece is turning two soon and it will be her first time trick or treating. She is going to be TinkerBell! My mom decided she's dressing as Peter Pan. It's going to be a blast! Thanks for the recipes. Looking forward to reading more from you.
