Extra Halloween Candy? Here’s What to do With It!
Let's be clear, you could just eat all of it yourself, but that wouldn't necessarily be the healthiest option, would it?
If you're not up for pile driving 10 pound of skittles and peanut butter cups down you gullet you can actually donate it to charity.
According to WMTW, there are several charities you can donate your un-handed-out Halloween candy to. One example is the Treats for Troops and Operation Gratitude. These organizations will collect all your unused candy and then ship it off to our service men and women and veterans alike.
If you can't or would rather not give your candy away, you can use the leftovers to turn it into something else. For example, you can take your unused Reese's Cups and make 'Trash Bark'
Last but not least, if you don't want to utilize either of the aforementioned ideas, you can always just bag it up and hum-chuck it in the chest freezer. Yes, you can actually freeze your leftover Halloween candy and just take it back next year. But let's be real, you're not leaving delicious candy in a freezer for an entire year. None of us have that kind of self-control.
