5+ things to do with extra Halloween Candy! | Greater Lansing Area Moms

Halloween is over and now what do you do with ALL of the candy in the house?? GLAMoms has rounded up local places to donate it to or use the candy up at a later time! 


Donate it to No Senior without Christmas! Unwrapped candy can be dropped off outside Yoga Connect Haslett starting Friday, November 3rd (a bin is placed near the front door), or email our friend, Kelly [email protected] for other drop-off locations! This candy will be added as an extra treat to boxes that contain essential household items, ensuring that local older adults receive the support they need during the holiday season.

Drop off at Vitek Family Dentistry in DeWitt, November 6-9th. $1 per pound up to 5 lbs! They will be donating it to US Military Troops. Call 517-277-2000 or email [email protected] with any questions. 

Make Leftover Halloween Cookie Dough and freeze for when that sweet tooth hits! 

Store it away and then use it for decorating your gingerbread house, December will be here before we know it!

Melt extra chocolate and drizzle on popcorn, pretzels, or even fruit!

Birthday party coming up? Save it for an ice cream sundae! Unwrap and cut up into individual bowls for a DIY sundae bar.

Drop unwrapped candy off at one of the many free tiny pantries located throughout Greater Lansing, like this one.
