Yes, it IS possible to have leftover Halloween candy. If your kids are anything like mine, they came home with way more sugar than they could (or should) possibly ever eat.
There’s no reason to let all that excess candy go to waste. Parenting.com has a great list of 25 Things to Do with Leftover Halloween Candy that is well worth checking out. (If the list has a flaw, it is that it assumes that there would actually be leftover chocolate!)
There are some great ideas, including turning the candy into an advent calendar and some creative places to donate your leftovers.
In our house, we typically save the non-chocolate leftover Halloween candy for our graham cracker houses we make in December. The chocolate candies go straight to my thighs.
This is also the perfect time to save on candy for future consumption! I use coupons to take advantage of the Halloween candy clearance to stock up on candy for stocking stuffers. I just look for candy that isn’t in Halloween-themed packaging and bury it in my freezer until Christmas so I (er… we) won’t eat it.
What do you do with your leftover Halloween Candy?
