Wondering what to do with leftover Halloween candy? Our family always has gobs of leftover Halloween candy lying around for months after the holiday has already come and gone.
If you have young ones who love to go trick-or-treating, you know how easy it is to suddenly find yourself completely overrun in candy. Your kids may prefer that you just stay out of their hard-earned candy stash, but if you get tired of watching them ping off the walls on a constant sugar high, it might be time to put some of that candy to better use.
These yummy treats will offer you some amazing ideas for using up large batches of candy. And these treats are so delicious and easy to make, you may find that your kids are more willing to volunteer some of their candy to the cause!
Your kids may even be happy to do the baking for you. And sure – you’re trading sugar treats for sugar treats, but at least this way you won’t be finding old Halloween candy stuck to the carpet in the back of your kids’ closets sometime next Summer!
Or at least, you’ll find less of it.
