Now that Halloween has come and gone, you may have leftover candy at home. But what to do with it?

While eating the mounds of Reese’s, M&Ms, Twix, Snickers, Twizzlers , and other treats is always a great option, there are other sweet ideas for how to repurpose Halloween candy. Use it in the kitchen, tuck it away in the freezer, or even give it away:

Families can donate their candy surplus to military members, first responders, and even sick children unable to trick-or-treat themselves.

Treats for Troops is a Halloween candy collection program organized by Soldiers’ Angels, which provides aid, comfort, and resources to the military, veterans, and their families. The collected candy is then sent to service members and veterans.
