What Do You Do With...

All the candy??? We moved to a new house this year, so we had no idea how many trick or treaters we would get. We didn’t go overboard on candy, but we only had a handful of kids. Now we have bags of chocolate left! Oh yeah, I could eat it all with no problem, but I SHOULDN’T, and my husband shouldn’t either.

So what do you do when you have leftover candy? Freeze it? Take it to work to share with co-workers who don’t need all that candy either? Throw it away? Aaack, okay, so that’s going waaaay overboard!

Any suggestions??

Hey Natasha! I've found taking left over candy to work is a good idea. Office workers will eat just about anything - it's like they never get fed otherwise. Chocolate should disappear like you're giving away free money.

Yep, work is a great idea. One of the big bosses at my job comes out hunting chocolate about the same time everyday. It will vanish quickly I bet.

I get extremely generous to trick-or-treaters at the end of the night. :)
We told the last kids that if they came back in 15 minutes, they could have the rest and they did come back to clean us out. Of course, I didn't realize that my party-goers were stashing "the good stuff" so i still have a bowl to take to the office.

Take some to the office. Throw some in the freezer. If you have kids (like me) and you're a bad person, you save it and put it in their Christmas stockings ...

Office workers, donate it to one of the local shelters/wherever they need a little pick me up. You can freeze chocolate for ages (a year? I think) You can also back with it, you can make cookies (toll house style) with just about any chocolate candy out there. We get candy in our stockings at my mom's (And always have if they could afford it [younger days]).

If nothing else, send it here! LOL

Sure, I've got a suggestion--send that delicious goodness to me!! :-)

Or you could take it to the office and get your co-workers to love you even more.

OK, looks like the consensus is take it to work. :) Thanks for all the suggestions...putting chocolate in the Christmas stockings in a great idea!

You're better off in the refrigerator than the freezer as extreem temperatures give chocolate "bloom" - that white chalking looking stuff.

Then again, there's always the office. :D
