4 Things to Do With Your Leftover Halloween Candy

 
Can’t stop noshing those sweets? We’ve got four fab ways to empty your candy bowl, without eating it all.

From brightening someone’s day with some baked goods to gettin’ crafty with the candy, we’ve got cool ideas for all of those treats! 
 
Donate everything!
There are so many places and people who have use for all that candy. So spread the sweetness. Nursing homes, the food bank, women’s shelters, and schools, would all love and appreciate your donation.

Check out secondharvest.org for more info. Or send the candy to the troops in a care package (check out opgratitude.com) for more info.

Bake it up…and give it away.
There are tons of uses for sweets in cooking. Try baking cookies or brownies with peanut butter cups or topping a batch of sugar cookies with M&M’s. Then, wrap them up in some cute packaging and give them to someone ya heart.
 
Get crafty.
There are tons of things you can make with your leftover candy. A Halloween wreath for next year is a great one to make with stale candy. Using wrappers to make necklaces are perfect for gifts. Or, save it to pop on a gingerbread house for the holidays.
 
Freeze it!
Can’t stand to part with your treats? Freeze them. Candy can be saved for up to a year if frozen. This is great if you need a couple pieces for a baking project or simply to satisfy those chocolate fixes we all need every once in a while.
