No, the picture associated with this post is NOT a mistake, nor selected by accident. I'll get there... If you still have a bunch of leftover Halloween candy, why not get a lil' weird with it?  Here are some strange things you can do with your leftover candy from Parenting magazine:

  • Bake it into a cake! Peanut butter cups and fun-sized candy work great in cakes or brownies. Just google 'Halloween candy cake recipes.'
  • Save it and work it into Thanksgiving.  Marshmallows on the yams are the norm.  But Parenting magazine claims candy corn on the yams might be even better.
  • Use it in an advent calendar for Christmas.  It's pretty easy to make one with your kids. The website AlphaMom has instructions on how to do it with little paper cups and tissue paper. It's pretty easy.
  • Flavor your own vodka. Heh, you know this is the one you've been waiting for, and hence the picture! Just put a few pieces of candy in a glass container with a lid, like a mason jar.  Then fill it the rest of the way with vodka, close the lid, wait a few days, and boom, you've got Skittles vodka. Next, give me a call and I'll help you make it disappear...
