HOW TO USE UP LEFTOVER HALLOWEEN CANDY

There is a trick, though, to getting a little more life out of the spoils of a night of trick or treating. 

Check out these three easy, tasty desserts that don’t discriminate against any Halloween candy (yes, even candy corn). 

We found recipes for candy bark, fudge and brownies that are sure to delight your kiddos, even if it means you have to steal a few pieces from the candy dish.

DRIVELINE COFFEE IS PUTTING CAFFEINE ON WHEELS IN WARSAW 

There’s a lime green Volkswagen Microbus bumbling around town and keeping Warsaw caffeinated. 

Driveline Coffee makes rounds four days per week, operated by 15-year-old Morgan Diecks and her father, Tom. 

Morgan is homeschooled and does her studies during the afternoon. She is still learning to drive, but doesn’t have her license just yet, so Tom takes the wheel.

“We love coffee. We’re kind of borderline coffee snobs.”

Morgan said she hopes to get a blender sometime during spring to make frappes and smoothies. For now, it’s espresso and drip coffee.
