Use excess Halloween candy as cookie ingredients
Excess Halloween candy. Is there any other kind?
Jeff's hack won't exactly reduce the sugar consumption in your house, but perhaps you can bake up a few batches and freeze them for the holidays? Or foist them on your coworkers? Even better: arrange to bring treats to a local hospital, shelter or retirement home.
For the last 2 years, I have used excess Halloween candy to make cookies. Just take your favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe, and in place of (or in addition to) the chocolate chips, use your extra Smarties, M&Ms, and mini chocolate bars (just chop up the latter beforehand). Depending on how many kinds of treats you have to work with, each cookie may be a surprise as to exactly what's in it.
