Candy Bar Coffee Cake Recipe

Candy Bar Coffee Cake Recipe
Now that kids go to parties or trunk and treats rather than going door to door trick-or-treating, most of us have lots of Halloween candy left over. We buy large bags just in case we get a few trick-or-treaters, but rarely use it all. We can, of course, eat it and gain several pounds, or find new ways to use it. Trick-or-Treat Brownies are always a good way to use leftover candy bars, but there are dozens of other ways to use them up. Although the candy bars last a long time when stored in a cool place, they can be used in the following Candy Bar Coffee Cake at an upcoming holiday brunch. This one is very easy, and contains only about four ingredients, including refrigerator biscuits.
”” This coffee cake can be put together and be ready for baking in about 10 minutes. It should be served warm and on the same day that it is baked.
