Savor the sweets: DIY uses for extra Halloween candy

There is some debate about how old is too old to trick-or-treat on Halloween, but regardless of where it comes from, Halloween is full of candy. Younger kids often hoard their Halloween candy for months, making it a competition to see how long they can make their stash last. As high schoolers, it might be less appropriate (or healthy) to reserve so much sugar for so long. Obviously, there are some candies that there could never be too much of. But what about those odd gummy ones, or the random mints thrown in?

Whether there is extra candy lying around from trick-or-treating, the hand-out bowl, or the discount chocolate sale in the days following Halloween, there is room for creativity with the leftover sweets. Of course, trading candy or bringing it to school to give to friends (and teachers…) is another effective way to get rid of extra treats. But with these fun and creative recipes, there are lots of uses for the sweet remnants of Halloween night.
