Fun Ideas for Leftover Halloween Candy

It might seem like crazy talk, but sometimes you might find yourself in the position of having a surplus of Halloween treats. Whether it is because you over-bought or your little ones hit the jackpot while trick-or-treating, the question remains as what to do with all of these sweets?

There is no need to waste anything! Here are a few tips on what to do with bulk Halloween candy.

Bake Cookies – Whip up your favorite cookie dough recipe, whether it is for classic chocolate chip or simple sugar, then stir in leftover chocolates or candies! You can stick to just chocolate, or do a medley of chopped up treats that results in a new delicious creation.

Top Brownies – A batch of ooey-gooey brownies is made even better with Snickers or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups on top!  Even if they are shaped like a pumpkin, that won’t matter when you chop them up, arrange them on top, then bake in the oven. 

Boost Coffee or Hot Chocolate – A Kit Kat, Twix, Milky Way, or any miniature chocolate really will make a sweet and surprising addition to your morning caffeine jolt. Give it a try! If they are long enough you can even use them as a stirring device, which is more environmentally friendly because it is not potentially wasting a plastic spoon.

Save for a Gingerbread House – There is no way that fruity candies or creamy chocolate can go to waste with the Christmas holiday approaching. Some of the scarier candy might not work, but any candy bars or bright and colorful candies like skittles can be utilized for your annual gingerbread house!

When things go bump in the night, it is nice to have something to light up the darkness. Glow in the dark candy bars are perfect for Halloween! Is it too early to start talking about Halloween? We don’t think so, but either way, the following honestly makes sense any time of year – at least to our fellow candy lovers.

Hershey’s Assorted Glow in the Dark Candy Bars | BlairCandy.com

What makes things glow in the dark after all? Anything that glows in the dark contains phosphors which radiate light after being energized. The truth is that the candy bars themselves do not glow in the dark, but instead the wrappers do! The reason that makes them extra special on Halloween is because it is so fun to turn off the lights and watch the candy floating around.

The following favorites all come wrapped in a glow in the dark wrapper:

  • Hershey’s Glow in the Dark
  • Reese’s Glow in the Dark
  • Kit Kat Glow in the Dark

Popcorn Balls | BlairCandy.com

Fall favorites are not limited to the few items listed above. The season would not be complete without deliciously sweet and savory popcorn balls! Watch the faces of your little ones light up when they are presented with this undeniably tasty autumnal snack.

We carry the best Halloween popcorn balls from Kathy Kaye. These popcorn balls are 100% mad in the USA at Kathy Kaye Farms, Utah.  Each batch is made using fresh popcorn that is brought together with some sugar and corn syrup. There are 24 individually wrapped popcorn balls. At 110 calories each, you don’t have to feel guilty about this little indulgence.

While we can’t be precisely positive about the origin of the popcorn ball, there is a Nebraska legend that claims popcorn balls are a result of the Nebraska weather. The legend states that there was a mile of scorching sun shining on the corn crops that popped the corn and a mile of rain that washed all the syrup out of the sugar cane. Everything came together and the popcorn ball was born!

Regardless of what you believe, the scrumptious nature of popcorn balls cannot be denied. Stock up at BlairCandy.com!
