Halloween’s over and chances are you or a cherubic loved one have a grip of a candy stash worthy of Costco. There comes a point in time where you look at your pile and must admit defeat. When that moment comes consider these ways to use your leftovers creatively or donate your candy to a worthy cause like those displaced by hurricane Sandy. What? Smosh has a heart! It even has a nougat center.
1. Get Crafty
I spent a couple month senior year of High School making Starburst bracelets for ravers and made $50. So don’t look at your old candy and think, “trash” think “sucker profit”. Here’s a great tutorial for wrapper jewelry: and another one to make Full Size candies into wallets to put all your cash :
2. Get Baking
There are an insane amount of ways to use candy in baking. I say cut out the middleman and just stick a bunch of candies on a stick of butter and gag on it whole. That recipe can be found on Martha Stewart Living. Other recipes can be found HERE.
3. Get OCD
Make sure to spray a sealant on your work or else you will have a giant teaming mass of ants. Actually, go with it and sell it to a Modern Art Museum where you will be hailed as a master of Ant Performance Art.
4. Get Your Sister
It’s why they call it, “Fun Size”.
5. Get Frozen
Eh, who has the time to do all this stuff? Just stick the candy (chocolate specifically) in your freezer and then your treat will time travel into your mouth months from now when you need it the most. Like when you’re stressed out from school or you’re really hiiii- Mom. How’s the momming? I’m just playing Assasin’s Creed 3. Totally not doing anything else…Reeses?
