Leftovers from Halloween

What do you do with leftover candy (that you don't want the kids to eat or that you don't like yourself) from Halloween or any other event? Here are some ideas of what to do with leftover candy and pumpkins.

  • Chop up the chocolate candy or candy corn that you did not hand out on Halloween and use them in your cookie recipes.

  • Use the leftover candy for the gingerbread house that you will make around the Christmas holidays.

  • Save the candy for Christmas treats for guests.

  • Save the candy for a child's goody bag that might be near the holidays.

  • Save the candy and put them in a pinata for the holidays, who says that pinatas are only for birthdays?

  • Take the candy in to work, so others can enjoy it.

  • Take the candy in to a homeless shelter, there are kids and adults there that would appreciate it.

  • Melt the chocolate bars for chocolate-covered strawberries.

  • Melt the chocolate bars and make chocolate fondue.

  • Use the pulp from the pumpkin and make pumpkin pies, soups and breads.

  • Clean out the pumpkin and use it as a vase to put flowers in.

  • Wash the pumpkin seeds and roast them for a nutritious snack.

  • Pumpkins can be used in the compost for use as a fertilizer.

  • If you have a garden, bury the pumpkin in it, it will enrich the soil.

I hope these tips were useful and I hope that everyone had a great Halloween!
