It’s the day after Halloween and now you have a bucket or two of candy!  You probably see things like M&M’s, Snickers, Tootsie Rolls, Dots and Whoppers, among other delicious sweets. Instead of tossing the goods, take a look at these ideas for leftover Halloween candy!leftover halloween candyCandy doesn’t have to be consumed within a week or even a month.  Take a look at this list of ideas for leftover Halloween candy:

  • Crush up the “good candy” and add to cookie dough before baking.

  • Use those crushed pieces to roll chocolate-covered marshmallows or pretzel rods in it.
  • You could also sprinkle your favorite crushed candy on top of pie or cupcakes.

  • My children love to make a candy bar for dessert one night.  We each grab a bowl of vanilla ice cream and I let them add their own crushed mix-in!  It is cheaper than taking a visit to the ice cream parlor and just as fun!
  • Save the candy for Valentine’s Day!  Most candy has a 6-8 month shelf life.  (Valentine’s Day is in 5 short months.)
  • You could save the candy for upcoming birthday party favors, too.
  • Donate the leftovers to your child’s school.  Some teachers use this as a reward for good behavior. Some teachers use this in a candy jar for their desk. A piece of delicious chocolate might be the pick-me-up they need to get through the day!
  • You could also donate to your dentist.  Many dentists will actually buy your candy from you and ship it off to soldiers! (It’s not a premium price, but your children will feel like they are getting something in return for the candy.)

  1. You are so creative! It would never have crossed my mind to make desserts or sprinkles from the remaining chocolates and candies :))) Probably because in my family we never have extra chocolates left! I really liked your idea. Perhaps today I will buy sweets and make cupcakes stuffed with such sprinkles. Thank you for the idea!
