Still making your way through a stash of Halloween candy?

MasterChef winner Kelsey Murphy has some sweet ideas on how to incorporate those treats into something even grander.

Swedish Fish Meatballs

  • 14 oz. package frozen meatballs (fully cooked)
  • 24 oz. BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup Swedish fish 

Place in crock pot on high until fish have melted (about 2 hours). Keep on warm for serving.
*Can also be made with marinara sauce.

No-churn candy ice cream

  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream (cold)
  • 2 cups favorite candy, chopped

Whisk condensed milk, vanilla, and salt together in a bowl. In stand mixer with whisk attachment or with hand mixer, mix heavy cream on high until stiff peaks (about 2 minutes).

Gently fold whipped cream until milk mixture. Place ice cream base in loaf pan or any desired pan and freeze for 2 hours. Add in mix ins and return to freezer for 3 more hours. 

Chocolate-covered peanut butter banana bites 

  • 2 bananas
  • 12 bite size Reese’s cups 
  • 12 toothpicks 
  • 12 oz. semisweet chocolate 
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil or shortening

Slice bananas into 12 equal segments. Top each banana with Reese’s. Put toothpick through Reese’s and banana and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze 30 minutes.

In microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate and coconut oil or shortening together by heating for 30 seconds at a time stirring after each until melted. 

Dip frozen bananas in chocolate and return to lined cookie sheet. Return to freezer for 30 minutes. Enjoy immediately or store in freezer for 2 weeks.
