Once Halloween is over and trick-and-treaters are gone, you’ll probably have a lot of leftover candy to deal with. If you’re looking for a fun way to put it to some good use, it’s time to try one of the sweetest trends to emerge on TikTok: candy salad.

Most viral TikTok trends are pretty easy to pull off, and that also happens to be the case with candy salad. You can prepare this “dish” by taking all of your favorite types of candy and mixing them together in a bowl to make your own candy salad.

The origins of this trend are hard to pin down, but Hunter Kailey is one of the TikTok creators who helped it go viral. Her candy salad video was viewed by millions of people and she even went as far as to describe it as her signature dish.

There are no rules when it comes to making candy salad, but some TikTok users enjoy following a theme, using Halloween or holiday candy. The main idea is to play around with different textures and flavors like you would with a regular salad.

Needless to say, candy salad is packed with sugar so it’s not recommended to eat too many sweets at once, but you can use it to make dinner parties, get-togethers, and movie nights a little bit sweeter.
