What to do With Leftover Halloween Candy

Safety first! Check over all the Halloween candy to make sure it is safe. If it looks or smells wrong, throw it out. There will be plenty of candy that passes your safety test.

Use the fun size Hershey bars to make s’mores. All you need are marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate. You don’t necessarily have to make s’mores over a campfire. It can be just as fun to make a batch of s’mores and then settle down to watch a movie together.

Real Simple has an awesome recipe for Candy Corn and Pretzel Bark. It requires white chocolate, miniature pretzels, candy corn, and dried cranberries. This recipe is easy to do and an excellent way to use up the Candy Corn before your family tires of the taste.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups can be chopped and whipped into an Easy Peanut Butter Pie You can think of it as an adapted cheesecake. Chop up the peanut butter cups and add them into the mix. Save some pieces to use as decorative elements on top of the pie.

Real Simple also has a great recipe for a “Caramel-Cookie Cheesecake Pie”. This is another modified cheesecake recipe. This one calls for plenty of chopped up Twix Fun Sized Bars.

You cannot go wrong with M&M cookies! Use your favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies, and substitute the chocolate chips for plain M&Ms. You will end up with some very colorful cookies. Beware, the colors could temporarily stain your child’s face, fingers, and whatever those fingers touch.

Lollypops can be used as a quick and easy way to decorate a cupcake. Plant one lollypop in the center of a cupcake to give it a decorative touch. Another idea is to use lollypops instead of candles in a birthday cake. The birthday girl or boy can share the lollypops with the guests, (instead of accidentally sharing the germs that can be spread as a result of blowing out the candles).

If you just want to get all that leftover candy out of your house, without consuming it, there is a great way to do that. Find a Halloween Candy BuyBack program near where you live. Send those treats to the troops!

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.
