Here are some ideas to use up all of that Halloween Candy you collected the other night!

  1. Pop all those extra M&M’s into a bag with almonds, raisins and peanuts. Trail Mix!
  2. Toss those little Hershey’s into your coffee in the morning for a Mocha
  3. Use it to decorate a Gingerbread house. The boxed kits never seem to have enough decorating materials anyways.
  4. Make a homemade piñata (thank you Martha Stuart for this tutorial) and then stuff the candy in it for a party!
  5. Freeze it to use in milkshakes for the rest of the year (or add it to homemade ice cream to also pop in the freezer.)
  6. You can melt hard candies inside of a cookie cutter to make fun Christmas ornaments!
  7. Use Mint Mentos and Diet Coke to make a geyser. (Fun and you can teach your kids some stuff about science while you’re at it.
  8. Use it in other recipes! (Some inspiration below.)
