Do you have too much Halloween Candy at your house? Are you finding that you and your kids can’t resist eating too many Halloween candies? Do you have Halloween candy you don’t like or want!??
Here are the strategies that will allow you to gain control of the Halloween candies:
Make A Rule Of One Candy Per Day
This will work if your kids are small and you normally don’t have “all you can eat” candy rules at your house. Just put all the candy in a container on the top shelf, and designate a particular time of the day when everyone is allowed to take one candy. In my house, the candy time is in the morning – the kids get their gummy vitamin and they also get to pick 1 candy each out of the plastic pumpkin. Nobody argues because it’s a routine – only 1 candy, and only in the morning. If you can create and follow this rule, the abundance of candies is not even a problem.
Donate Halloween Candy
Do a Google search for Halloween candy donation in your city. Many cities have programs to donate unopened Halloween candies. You will support a good cause and get rid of your unwanted candies!
Here at WOMC we are running a candy program! The way it works is that you send us your candy and we will eat it – for free and at no cost to you!!!
Candy donations can be made at:

Bake With Halloween Candy
You can use up a lot of Halloween candy at once by baking with it. Just melt the chocolate candies and use them instead of chocolate in chocolate cake and brownies recipes. Of chop the chocolate candies in the food processor and use in place of chocolate chips. You can also grate the candies in the food processor and use them as a sprinkle on top of cakes and cookies. Another idea is to melt the chocolate candies and use it as a fondue!
