Every year, I either buy way too much candy for Halloween or not enough. There just seems to be no happy middle ground.

If I don’t have enough for trick-or-treaters, I always rush to the store to buy more. Which also means that, every year, I end up with a pretty big stash of leftover Halloween candy.

I never know what to do with all the candy after the spooky holiday is over. Usually, it just sits around for weeks while I continue to munch on it one day at a time.

Candy is great, but there are a ton of alternative uses for the sweet treats as well. Read below to find out other ways to use leftover Halloween candy!

Hard Candy

Lie out colorful hard candies on a baking sheet. Melt in the oven at 250°F for 5 to 7 minutes. While still hot, insert lollipop sticks and let re-harden.


Pull stems out of apples, then insert lollipop sticks. Melt down caramel candies with water. Dip the apples into the melted caramel, then roll it in chopped-up chocolate.

Peanut Butter Cups

Melt peanut butter cups with butter. Dip strawberries into melted chocolate and let them cool.

Gummy Candies

Fill popsicle molds with gummy candies, then pour lemon-lime soda into the molds. Freeze for 4 hours.
