Your Halloween loot has Gobstoppers, Reese’s Pieces, fireballs, candy corn, caramel-apple flavored somethings, and that’s just the beginning. The list goes on and on and…
Well, let’s just say you have a lot of candy on your hands. What in the world are you going to do with it all?
Donate it.Truth be told, kids aren’t the only ones who like candy. Throw it into a communal bowl at the office. Not only do you get it out of your house, but you’ll generate goodwill among your coworkers, a win-win for all.
Combine it.If your haul has a lot of chocolate in it (or even if it doesn’t) throw in some nuts, raisins or dried fruit and you have yourself a great trail mix.
Transform it.Chop it up, grind it up, crush it, melt it or mash it, but above all put it to use. Create your own milkshakes or cookies. Dissolve it in your coffee or use it as an additive in stronger drinks. Use it for ice cream sprinkles or to top a cake. The possibilities are endless.
Craft it. Use your leftover candy to create decorations and tasty concoctions for Christmas. Make a gingerbread house with it. You can even use the sugar and other chemicals found in many candies to do your own science experiments.
If you’re creative about it, there’s no such thing as too much candy. So have some fun with it, and if you want to hoard a little for yourself… well, we won’t tell.
