What do I do with all these leftover Halloween candies?
You planned for 150 trick or treaters at your home, but only 20 showed up. What to do with all the leftover candy? Here are some useful ideas.
Caramels: If you’re stuck with lots of extra plastic-wrapped caramel squares, we have several recipes that call for them. Try our Caramel Fondue (click for recipe), Caramel Cheesecake Brownies (click for recipe) or Chewy No-Bake Cereal Cookies (click for recipe).
Gingerbread Décor: Want to make and decorate a gingerbread house this holiday season? Then make sure you save some spare Halloween candy for decorating. Do get creative with your choices. Skittles, M&Ms or Smarties are easy to stick to frosting on the side or roof of the house. Kit-Kat bars can be reused as siding, and sour candies or gumdrops are also nice architectural features on any gingerbread mansion. Have 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 in cookies.
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.
