3 Ideas for Leftover Halloween Candy

halloween-candy

What should you do with leftover Halloween candy? Whether you bought more treats than you had trick-or-treaters or your kiddos just couldn’t eat their whole haul, you need to find a way to use up the candy. If you’re not sure what to do with the sugary stash, check out these ideas!

Donate the Halloween Candy

Do you want or need to get the treats out of the house? Ask local food pantries, your child’s school or other community organizations about the possibility of donation. If these places won’t take candy donations, talk to a friend or host a second neighborhood trick-or-treat activity to give the goodies away.

Bake Holiday Cookies

Choose your favorite sugar cookie recipe or use a boxed mix as a base for this easy holiday recipe idea. After you add the ingredients and mix a batch of cookie dough, sprinkle in some of the trick-or-treating leftovers. Unwrap chocolate candies and chop larger bars into pieces. Drop the smaller-sized pieces into the dough, form the mixture into balls and follow the recipe or box’s directions for baking. After the cookies bake and cool, frost them with Halloween themed colors. Add more unwrapped leftover candy to the top.

Make a No-Bake Everything Cake

Start with a pre-baked, ready-made graham cracker pie crust. Mix a batch of chocolate pudding and another of vanilla. Drip a few drops of orange food coloring into the vanilla pudding and blend the new hue in. Chop up more of the chocolate candy bars. Add the Halloween candy to the chocolate pudding. Spoon the pudding into the pie crust. Cover the chocolate and candy pudding with a layer of vanilla orange pudding. Top the pie with whipped cream and more candy pieces. Refrigerate the pie until it feels firm.
