What To Do With Leftover Halloween Candy

After Halloween has come and gone, there is always a ton of leftover Halloween candy! Of course, you could just munch on it until Christmas, but I’d rather not have candy sitting around the house that long! If you are looking for a way to re-purpose or quickly use up some of that leftover candy, here are 12 Leftover Halloween Candy Recipes that are anything but boring. I know what I’m going to be doing on November 1st!

What to do with leftover Halloween Candy

You could always just throw Halloween candy away, of course. But rather than waste it, repurpose Halloween candy and make it into treats you can then take to your neighbors! In fact, rather than a Christmas goodie plate, deliver your plates a week before Thanksgiving and they will be a welcome treat!
