Seven Things to do with Leftover Halloween Candy

Now that Halloween has passed, you probably have a lot of leftover candy. While consuming it every day until it’s gone might sound like fun, we have a few other ideas you might like. Today the Willow Hill Blog is sharing seven things you can do with leftover Halloween candy in your Puyallup, Washington apartment.


Freeze it

If you’ve got a lot of chocolate leftover, freezing it is one of the best things you can do. Not only does this help prolong the life of the candy, it also helps with future recipes. Adding frozen chocolate to milkshakes, sundaes, and ice cream are just a few examples. Have a mini Snickers bar? Break it up and add to your dessert.


Bake it

Adding mini peanut butter cups or M&Ms into a cake batter, cookie dough, or brownie batter is a great idea. You could even break up the candy and use it as a topping for your dessert.


Combine it

Do you like trail mix? Make your own wild trail mix by adding your favorite candies along with some salty favorites, like nuts and pretzels, to a sandwich bag for your next outing.


Pair it

Chocolates, caramels, and even some candies with fruity flavors pair nicely with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee.


Craft it

With Thanksgiving and Christmas approaching, this is a great time to make your own advent calendar. Alpha Mom has instructions for this fun leftover Halloween candy repurposing project that cost less than $5 to make. Enjoy reading about the calendar as well as other fun ways to repurpose Halloween candy.


Transform it

It’s almost time to make gingerbread houses. Use your leftover Halloween Candy to transform a plain gingerbread house into a dazzling candy palace.


Smash it

Does someone have a birthday in the next month? Fill a pinata with the leftover candy. Everyone will love it, and it saves you from buying more candy.
