What do I do with all these leftover Halloween Candies?
You planned for 100 trick or treaters at your home, but only 20 showed up. What to do with all the leftover candy? Here are some useful ideas.
Gingerbread Décor: Want to make and decorate a gingerbread house this holiday season? Make sure you save some spare Halloween candy for decorating. Skittles, M&Ms or Smarties are easy to stick with frosting on the side or roof of the house. Kit-Kat bars can be used as siding, and sour candies or gumdrops are nice architectural features on any gingerbread mansion. We have a Spicy Gingerbread Men that you can download and use as a template to cut out the pieces. So much fun!
Chocolate Chunk Cookies: If you’ve got leftover milk chocolate or dark chocolate bars, rough chop them and use them in place of chocolate chips in chocolate chip cookies. M&Ms are also great!
Chocolate Fondue: Add a bit of extra flavour to a chocolate fondue by rough chopping some Mars bars and stirring them into the chocolate before serving. Other caramel-infused chocolates can also be used. Messy, but delicious.
Or, you could always just gradually eat your stockpile of leftover candy. That’s a fine solution, too.
