What Do I Do With My Leftover Halloween Candy?

The costumes are put away and Halloween decorations are coming down but what are you going to do with all of the leftover Halloween Candy?  Well, we have 4 ideas that will hope will make your children feel good about bequeathing at least some of their hard-earned bounty and help to keep the temptations away from parents too. 
 

1. Donate to Operation Shoebox –  Operation Shoebox is collecting leftover Halloween candy to send to our troops overseas.  You may also check with your local schools and/or Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts; many are hosting "Candy Drives" and will send to Operation Shoebox all at once.


2. Halloween Candy Buy Back / Operation Gratitude - Participating dentists will buyback leftover candy in exchange for prizes like coupons and toothbrushes.  Very cool! The dentists then pass the candy along to Operation Gratitude who will send to our troops!

To find participating dentists in your area go to Halloween Candy BuyBack and enter your zip code.

3. Use In Desserts - Break up leftover candy for a yummy dessert topping or include bits and pieces in your next pastry mix for a delicious dessert!

We found some yummy recipes on ABCNews.com  

4. Take It To Work - Treat your co-workers  who don't have trick-or-treaters at home.  It's a great way to include them in the fun and encourages a little social time too!
