I'll be honest, I always have the worst sugar-hangover on November 1st. My ravenous sweet tooth goes crazy on any holiday that is centered around sweets and eating (I'm looking at you, Halloween). But even with a pounding headache...I still want something sweet.

After Halloween I'm always left with random pieces of candy lying around. If you're anything like me and love combining baked goods with candy, here are three recipes to use leftover Halloween candy in a mug cake.
