Your little trick-or-treaters are about to bring home bucket loads of candy. Naturally, they will want to eat some of it. What happens when the Halloween candy gets a bit boring? You can repurpose leftover Halloween candy into other, tastier, treats. Try some of these ideas!

How to Re-Purpose Halloween Candy

Chocolate Bars
Break the “fun-sized” chocolate bars into small pieces. Use those pieces in your next batch of chocolate chip cookies. You won’t have to buy a bag of chocolate chips!

Turn them into s’mores. You will need one graham cracker, one “fun-sized” chocolate bar, and a marshmallow. It is possible to make s’mores in a campfire or on the stove (if you are careful).

Are you a candy maker? Melt down the chocolate bars and use them in your favorite candy mold. Pick a mold with a Fall theme, and you can make candy for guests at Thanksgiving dinner.

M&M’s
Chocolate M&M’s can be used to make M&M cookies. Follow your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, and substitute the M&M’s for the chocolate chips.

Does someone in your family have a birthday coming up soon? M&M’s (of any type) can be used as a quick and easy way to decorate a cake. Use them to spell out the name of the person who is having a birthday, or to make numbers for the person’s age. You can also use the M&M’s to decorate the edge of the cake.

Peanut Butter Cups
Reese’s has tons of recipes that include Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Some require the regular sized kind. Others require the mini peanut butter cups. You can add them to brownies, cupcakes, and more!

Lollipops
What can you do with all those leftover “suckers”? Use them up at an upcoming family get together or birthday party. Make cupcakes and put one lollipop into each, as a decoration. Children’s birthday parties often come with “goodie bags”. Toss a lollipop (or two) into each goodie bag.

Another way to use them up is to take them to work with you. Get a decorative bowl or vase. Arrange the leftover lollipops to resemble a bouquet. Place them in the break room with a sign that indicates that you want this decoration to be eaten. It could say “Enjoy a lollipop!”. Or, if your co-workers are fans of Alice in Wonderland, the sign could say “Eat Me”.

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.
