Bake with it NOW
Get a box of cake mix or cookie mix and to add a little (or a lot) of something extra, chop up some leftover candy and mix it into the batter. I did this at work one year and won a dessert contest!

Save It For Later
Put the candy away and save it for baking holiday cookies and decorating gingerbread houses!

Bring It To Work
Everyone loves a communal candy bowl… especially if your co-workers don’t have kids who went trick or treating!
