Every holiday it’s the same: Piles of uneaten candy belonging to our children are preserved like an ancient monument in some forgotten historical site. Nobody wants to throw candy away, but after a while eating the same type of chocolate bar and crunchy goods just doesn’t hit the same.
That’s why as a public service, we’re going to help you find some new uses for holiday style candy! No matter what time of year you finally find the courage to open those ziplocks of wrapped goodies, here are some excuses to start eating again!

Ice Cream Toppings
This is the easiest way to use the candy. Break it into smaller pieces and use it for ice cream toppings. Some candies like M & M’s and skittles are already the correct size.
Crush them in a plastic bag and use them as a topping for ice cream, cakes and cupcakes, or on top of whipped cream for a fancy hot cocoa.

There are many organizations that do this. But come on, you aren’t donating anything. You came here to find some creative ways to still eat the candy you say there is too much of.
But… around Halloween there is a Treats for Troops program, and sometimes the Ronald McDonald House will also accept these sorts of donations at the local level.
