Now is the time to gather up as much of the uneaten Halloween candy and stash it in your freezer or at least hide it from the kids. Chocolate candy can be used in place of chocolate chips for lots of your holiday baking and other kinds of candy can be used to decorate cookies, cupcakes, gingerbread houses and the like. Going out to buy this stuff later is costly, and by now your kids have had enough sugar overload anyway!
BTW, brush a little clear Karo syrup on your plain cookies and the little candies like Smarties will stick to the syrup as if with glue! Sprinkles or crushed hard candies will stick, too.

You can also use that candy and make your own "blizards" in the blender. (11/10/2008)
The little snack packs are reduced very cheap. As a teacher, they make great prizes (11/18/2008)
