Have you already eaten so much candy you’ve had enough epic sugar highs for one holiday season? Or maybe you’re already tired of your kids digging into their bounty of Halloween goodies and subsequently bouncing off the walls. Well, worry no more! There are plenty of ways to enjoy your leftover Halloween candy other than simply eating it. We tackled the leftover Halloween candy issue in 2005, but the Internet is always offering us new solutions.

A lot of people claim they throw away excess candy, but there’s no way you guys would do that. I mean, you wouldn’t be reading Candy Addict if you were the type of person who could just throw candy away, right? Try these ideas instead.

  • Donating is always a good thing. Why not donate your masses of leftover candy to a school, church, food bank or other organization that might possibly need candy?
  • HubPages suggests donating non-chocolate candy to soldiers serving in Iraq (or elsewhere) and creating collages, picture frames and sculptures using leftover candy.
  • Squidoo’s Leftover Halloween Candy Recipes – try their homemade fudge and tell us how it turns out!
  • Two words: Gingerbread House. If you haven’t started the tradition of decorating a gingerbread house for the holidays, now is a great time to do so. You can buy a cheap kit at just about any grocery store (or bake your own), and use your leftover Halloween candy to decorate it. Then, take pictures and send them to us.
  • Science Mom suggests Top 10 Scientific Uses for Leftover Halloween Candy, which includes blowing up marshmallows in the microwave, hosting M&M duels and creating a Mentos geyser.
