We still have a ton of candy leftover from last weekend. I’ve been letting my girls pick one to three pieces a day but at this rate we’ll be eating Halloween candy for Easter. Last year I ended up using the M&Ms for baking cookies and I took a lot of our stash to my office.
One mom I spoke to at last week’s soccer game had a grand idea. (Mmmmm grand. Reminds of 100 Grand Bars.) She let her 7-year-old and 3-year-old pick 10 pieces of Halloween candy each and then she donated the rest of the candy to the special ed teacher at our elementary school. Apparently she buys a lot of candy to keep as treats in her classroom.
Here are some more ideas for using up that Halloween candy, especially the chocolate!
The M&M website has a ton of fun recipes.
Squidboo has a great list of recipes for using up that Halloween booty, too.
It’s no surprise to me that Southern Living, my favorite magazine, also features some fabulous recipes for using candy.
This Halloween Candy Buy Back Program lists several dentists nationwide that will buy your candy and donate it to U.S. troops abroad.
What do you do with all your leftover Halloween candy? Do you have any ideas for donating it?
