If your house is like mine, the Halloween candy is everywhere…or at least I see signs of it everywhere, also known as wrappers!! If you are not wanting to eat it all this week, here are some ideas to put it into use for later:
All that chocolate you have collected is perfect for those holiday treats you like to bake. Chop them up and store them in freezer bags for another month and save some money on the fancy chocolate chips! I attempted to use the food processor this year, which worked nice on some of them, but in my opinion, creates chunks better for ice cream toppings.
Best to do it now before you eat it all…or at least that is my experience!.
Last year we set a rule of only two pieces of candy a day after school. After a couple of weeks they practically forgot about it and all that was left were the hard candies. They ended up being perfect to use for our Gingerbread Houses. The “extra” candy would also be great to decorate Christmas cookies, too. Almost all the candy below except for the marshmallows and M&Ms (chocolate does not make it until Christmas in our house!) are from our Halloween stash.
