1. Bring it to work/class
Everybody loves free stuff. Leave a bowl of candy out and it’ll be gone within the day.
2. Donate it
3. Use it as a counting tool
If you’ve got any tots learning to count and don’t mind giving them a sugar rush try giving them candies to count and when they have correctly counted twelve mini milky ways let them eat it as a reward.
4. Dye yarn
5. Create your own trail mix
Who says you can’t use all those packs of m&ms to create your own trail mix. Of course, if you’re anything like me you might need to buy some almonds and peanuts as well...
6. Hoard and eat the candy
7. Bake with it
Baked goods will always be improved by the addition of candy. Here are a few recipes to use.
8. Make flavored alcohol
9. Have a peppermint mocha
Make yourself a cup of coffee. Add a York Peppermint Patty. Boom. Instant peppermint mocha. You’re welcome.
10. Save it for gingerbread houses
If you’ve got a party in the near future just stuff a pinata with the candy. Sure you might get a few funny looks, but now you don’t have to deal with leftover candy.
