Too much Halloween candy is no good, especially if you're living with diabetes. Read on for some cool ways to re-purpose your stash!
1. Freeze it
Later on, you can add it to milkshakes, sundaes, or cookie dough.
2. Adult-ify it
Make flavored vodka by dropping candy into a bottle and letting it soak for as long as you like, or melt a mini bar in your coffee for homemade mocha.
3. Make Ornaments
I love this idea from the Science 2.0 website: Collect hard candy, lollypops, and lifesavers, shape them and heat them to create stained glass ornaments.
· Heavy metal cookie cutters
· Vegetable spray
· Life Saver or other hard candies
· Aluminum foil
· Cookie sheet
· Narrow shiny ribbon
Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheet with foil; spray cutters and foil with cooking spray. Fill cutters with a single layer of candy using as many as will fit. Bake 5 to 7 minutes until candies are melted. Remove from oven and allow candy to cool about 2 minutes. Use straw to a make a hole in each shape (for ribbon threading later) then continue cooling until cutters can be handled. Gently pull cutters away from ornament and thread with ribbon!
