What to do with all that Halloween Candy

With Halloween around the corner I thought this would be a good lightbulb to share:

If your kid's Halloween haul looks like ours, you'll be well-supplied with sugar till the candy canes start arriving in December. A few suggestions to help you disperse your little pirate's booty:

  • Chop it up and mix it into ice cream
  • Add it to cookie dough
  • Bake it into birthday cakes
  • Float Junior Mints in your coffee
  • Share it with your mail carrier, your garbage person, your dog walker, your housecleaner, your boss...
  • Freeze it to bring out for family movie nights
  • save it for decorating a holiday gingerbread house

And -- need it be said? -- sneak it yourself after the little ones are in bed and out of earshot.
