Obviously, you could just eat the Halloween candy. However, if you’re attempting to be healthier and you don’t want to be tempted by the sugary sweets, we’ve got some ideas for you! Or, if you’ve been snacking on it every day of October and you are growing a little tired of it, we’ve got something for you too! Here are a couple ideas for what to do with all of your leftover Halloween candy.

 

Donate Your Leftover Halloween Candy to Troops

Donate Your Leftover Halloween Candy to Troops

The best option to get rid of your leftover candy is to donate it to our troops! There are a few different channels you can go through, each affecting different areas. Treats for Troops is a program put on by Soldiers’ Angels, and their goal for this year is to collect 17,000 pounds of candy. So donate and help them reach their goal! Another program is Operation Gratitude. Last year, they received enough donations to distribute 533,891 pounds of leftover Halloween candy! If you weren’t able to resist the sugary sweets in your house this year and don’t have any left, don’t worry! You can still help out our troops this Christmas instead.

Recycle Your Halloween Candy Into New Sweets

If you’re sick of Halloween candy in its original form, but only have a few mini candy bars left, turn them into a delicious, and warm dessert that’s perfect for chilly fall nights! This is also a great idea if you only have a few pieces left and would like to bring in a sweet treat for your office or classroom, because it spreads out the candy so that there will be enough sugar for everyone. For candy bars, try this recipe for candy bar brownies from Food Network. Or if you’d rather not commit to an entire pan of brownies that could possible “go missing” in the night, crumble up a couple mini chocolate bars onto some ice cream. If you’d rather take a slightly healthier route, you could always swap out the ice cream for some greek yogurt (which is a great excuse to eat candy for breakfast.) Another yummy idea is to make s’mores! Simply swap out the plain chocolate for a peanut butter cup, Snickers, or any other chocolate candy. Gather around a fire on those crisp, autumn nights and enjoy. After all of that butter, sugar, cream, and wonderfulness, you could always book yourself a spa day for a bit of a sugar detox. If you went a little overboard on the candy, that’s okay. It’s Halloween, after all!
