Today I was supposed to do pumpkin seeds for the last day of October but I had two class parties to go to and other stuff to get ready for tonight. I wanted this last article to be something really special but instead I'm going to list some ideas that you can do with your Halloween candy. I will be doing a 25 days of Christmas and (knock on wood) I'll be preparing all November long for the Christmas stuff, which will begin December 1st.
So what can you do with that leftover Halloween candy? You could save it and eat it a little at a time but if you don't want to do that, here are a few things you can do.
1. Save decorative looking candy and use it for Christmas decorations on cupcakes. Obviously you don't want the Halloween looking ones on there but there will probably be candy that could be used such as M&M's. M&M's make perfect eyes and noses on cupcakes and other designs on cake. Use your imagination.
2. Bake it INTO a cupcake or cake. In the batter, push down a miniature candy bar for an extra surprise.
3. Donate it. Maybe you know someone who would love a bag of candy. My Mom's friends husband is a candy addict but they don't have a lot of money. So we donate it to him since we couldn't possibly eat it all.
4. Make S'mores: If you have any flat chocolate, you can make s'mores in your microwave with it, that's what we do.
5. Freeze the chocolate: Freeze the chocolate so it will last longer.
There are many more options but I'm running out of time, eek! :)
See ya next year with more Halloween ideas.
