Has Trick-or-Treat ended and left you with way too much leftover gummy candy and chocolatey goodies? Here’s a few ways to put those extra sweets to use.
Freeze Your Candy
Did you know that you can freeze your favorite candy to use later? Some candies last longer than others in the freezer, but some can stay fresh up to a year later. Try saving some of those sugary treats for other upcoming holidays and parties!
Bake with Your Candy
Mix up your favorite cookie recipe by adding some smashed peanut butter cups, or try your hand at Butterfinger blondies! The combinations are endless and a great way to give these treats a new life.
Make a Sundae Bar
What goes better with candy than ice cream? We can’t think of a better combo, so grab a scoop or three of your favorite frozen dairy dessert and sprinkle on a few KitKat bars, or try Nerds in place of sprinkles!
Donate Your Candy
It might be worth contacting your local food pantry if you have a considerable amount of leftover candy to see if they’ll accept it. Or, organizations like Treats for Troops can help to distribute candy to deployed servicemen and women.
You’ve earned it! Have a few pieces with friends and save up for buying Halloween candy next year!
