Halloween has come and gone and now you have more of a mess on your hands than just fake cobwebs
. What do you do with all the left over candy?
While Sally told Charlie Brown and Linus "I haven't even finished eating all of my Halloween candy" in the Thanksgiving episode, we don't think most of you will keep it around that long. (That never made sense to me. She didn't go Trick or Treating and was stuck in the pumpkin all night.)
Fortunately, someone has come up with some inventive ways to put that candy to good use. Check out the article from Parenting magazine
, with 25 helpful tips on resourcefully using up the left over candy from the kids' treat bags.
The tips of using it in baking cakes and cookies is pretty obvious, but there are some others that aren't as obvious. I like the tips for using it to sweeten up your coffee, holiday décor on gingerbread houses, a care-package for the grandparents or simply taking it to work for others to enjoy. (I hope my coworkers follow that last tip!)
