So, how are you handling the leftover Halloween Candy?

We didn't get as many trick-or-treaters this year, so had quite a bit of candy leftover. The peanut butter cups went to my daughter, but the plain chocolate bars and Kit Kats are calling me! :) Did you have a lot of leftover candy? How did you handle eating -- or not eating -- it? Thanks! ColleenNM

IF your diet allows for you to have one now and then, then just throw the remaining candy in the freezer. It will not damage the chocolate to be frozen, and then you can just take one out now and then. The fact that they are frozen will keep you from eating one on an impulse. I dont have any trick or treaters out here, so I only buy what candy I might want to eat. I do a bindge of sugar on halloween night, get a buzz off it, and go to bed when the crash hits. Its most fun if you are watching a horror movie just as the sugar buzz hits, makes you jumpy.

Are you kidding? Mars Bars are BETTER when they are frozen. They take longer to eat but ooooh it's yummy!

true, I love eating a frozen 3 musketeers bar. You can peal the chocolate off the outside and then eat the center like a ice cream sandwich.

Maybe I had better not tell you this, but freezing those little cups of chocolate pudding -- oh so yummy! Let them sit for a couple of minutes after you take them out of the freezer -- if you can wait that long. My girlfriend in NY told me about this last summer and now I always have one in the freezer "just in case" I get a chocolate craving. Enjoy! ColleenNM

Find some social event that you can take them too. Thankfully our conservation group had a meeting last night so we unloaded all the leftovers there.

That is a really good idea hvedra, if you have the will power. :) I do like to give away extra cake that way. I always seem to go overboard with huge cakes for family birthdays. I used to bring extras to work - now I just ask everyone to please take some home. ColleenNM

In my country ,there is a spring festival.during those days,all the relatives will visite you with there children.And a little candy and chocolate is not enough.Maybe you can hold a small party at the end of this year,and these food can treat the visitors for well.

Since I live way out in the country there were no trick or treaters. So I spent the night watching Ghost Hunters and Ghost adventures. I did buy myself candy..lol All of it is eaten by now.

Well we have two large bowls of the candy my kids got on our dining room table...and I eat a few pieces a day and I'm letting my kids eat more than usual as wellbecause they got sooo much this year!! I'm sure I'll hide it in a few days because it is just too much. Most off the time I keep some candy hidden in a gift bag and when the kids are good I take it out and let them pick one out.
