What are you going to do with the leftover Halloween candy after trick-or-treating is over?  Here are some easy ways to get rid of it.Halloween is coming up soon! Have you stocked up on candy to hand out to all the little trick-or-treaters? Many families buy more bags of Halloween candy than they need just in case they end up with an abundance of trick-or-treaters. What if you end up with a lot of leftover candy? Here are some ideas that will help you get rid of it.

How to Get Rid of Extra Halloween Candy

Give by the Handful
One easy way to make sure you get rid of all your Halloween candy is to give more than one piece to each trick-or-treater. This plan works best in towns or cities that put a “curfew” in place that signifies when kids must stop trick-or-treating. One hour before the end of the night start giving handfuls of candy to each trick-or-treater. Hand a few pieces to their parents, too.

Put the Candy Outside
Another easy way to get rid of excess Halloween candy is to put it outside. Pour all the leftover candy into a large, plastic, bowl. Put that bowl outside on your porch immediately after the hours for trick-or-treating have ended. There is a good chance that older trick-or-treaters will happily help themselves to the treats. For best results, choose a bowl that you won’t mind “losing”.

Bring it to the Break Room
Halloween is over and you ended up stuck with bags of leftover candy. Consider bringing the extra candy to work. Put it on a table in the break room for your co-workers to eat and enjoy. Put a post-it on the bags of candy that says “FREE”. Who doesn’t love to find free treats in the break room? Your generous contribution of candy could improve the mood of your co-workers.

Add the Candy to Baked Goods
One way to use up leftover Halloween candy is to find ways to add it to baked goods. Planning on making some chocolate chip cookies? Chop up the small chocolate bars that your kids brought home from trick-or-treating. That chocolate will take the place of chocolate chips. Or, make M&M cookies and use up all those little bags of M&Ms.

Got a family gathering to attend shortly after Halloween is over? Candy corn can be added as an edible decoration to the top of a cake. They turn a regular cake into a festive, fall, cake. Add some of those marshmallow pumpkins, too.

Cupcakes can be decorated with some of the extra Halloween candy. Sprinkle on some M&Ms. Plant a lollypop into the top of a cupcake. Those of you who are talented bakers might find a way to put a fun-size candy bar into the middle of a cupcake. Be creative, and you can get rid of the extra Halloween candy.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
