If you have kids, chances are you have a ton of Halloween candy! I’m also willing to bet that you would rather your kids not eat it all. We’ve got some solutions of what you can do with all of that left over candy that don’t involve your kids being in a candy coma and spending your money for dentist visits.
Pair a piece of chocolate with a glass of wine or drop it in some vodka to make a martini or mixed drink.
Do you know someone who is sick, lonely, stressed, heartbroken, discouraged, just had surgery, or a baby? Fill a storage box with candy and give it to them for an inexpensive but thoughtful and humorous gift. You’ll be sure to lift spirits.
Give candy away to people who would least expect it (in a non creeper way). Maybe leave a small package for your mailman, or give to a neighbor who doesn’t have kids.
Have an ice cream sundae night with your family and put the sorted candy out for toppings.
You can never go wrong with baking. There are tons of recipes you can use for left over candy from brownies, to cookies, to bars, to cakes and even pies! Or even create your own recipe and turn it into a family tradition!
Take your candy and mix it with some nuts and dehydrated fruit to make a sweet and salty trail mix!
Just drop a fun size piece of chocolate into your coffee instead of a sweetener.
Bring it to the office you work in but it at the front or on your desk and it’ll be gone within hours!
You could turn the candy into a science experiment or project for your kids. For example, these lifesaver ornaments.
