What Do You Do with all that Candy Corn Hip2Save

Have you accumulated a large stash of candy corn recently? If so, check out these creative ideas to make use of it (besides of course eating it – although that’s always fun! ๐Ÿ˜‰ )…

Candy Corn Wreath
Candy Cornucopia

Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies
Thanksgiving Turkey Toes

3 Ingredient Homemade Butterfingers (YUM! ๐Ÿ˜€ )
Candy Corn on the Cob (So cute!)

Candy Centerpiece that may start to disappear ๐Ÿ˜‰

Also, this creative idea was submitted by reader, Christine, in 2012…

What to do with all those bags of candy corn and candy pumpkins? Hey, how about making little goody bags! I simply used snack baggies and printed off some tags that said “Pumpkin Teeth and Pumpkin Poop.” I divided out the candy and stapled the folded tag to the bag. I also had a bag of spider rings I got for 25 cents on clearance last year…so I stapled those on too. I am handing these out to my kids’ sports teams tomorrow!

Do you have any creative ideas for how to make use of all your Halloween Candy? If so, share your ideas with us below!

    I made a wreath one year. Looked cute–and was incredibly heavy!–but it melted and oozed. Yuck! Only do that one if you live above the Mason Dixon Line!

      Thanks for letting me know, Erin – I live in Miami and was just thinking about making one. Guess not!

    • Em

      I live in TX and we’re on year 3 of ours, lol

    • Misty Nicole Overstreet

      You need to spray them with any protectant, as any good crafter would do ๐Ÿ™‚ I have made one that has lasted four years and I live in Mississippi!

      • Rebecca

        Start by handing out toothbrushes… Then have your kids come home after they have been out to a few houses and recycle their candy. With five kids they will still have plenty to share!

      • Erin

        Thanks for the tip, but I did. Still oozed. Actually, I was wondering if it was the sealer that caused it, though it was unseasonable warm and humid when I made it.

    Use them to play Bingo

  3. smellyann

    Pumpkin poop – LOL!!!

  4. Nick

    Throw it away! Yuck….

    • Jenny

      Yes! Throw it out. GROSS! You know what’s in that stuff?

    I’ve had sooooooo many requests for homemade Butterfingers after making them last year. I am not a fan of candy corn, but those butterfinger bars are out of this world! I’m hoping to stock up on some cheap bags of candy corn on Friday.

      • Tracy

        Sorry I see it now. Crazy Me!

    I have made topiaries, garland, and placed candy corn in candle holders with white candles for decorations. I lived near a candy shop, near Atlantic City, as a child and they had display cabinets with tons of decorations using candy corn for the fall months! What’s really neat these days are all of the autumn mixes in various colors that add great hues to projects!

    I have a good idea what to do with all that candy…eat it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. AmyE

    Homemade Butterfinger bars are candy crack LOL Those things are sooooo good!

    I love candy corn! I only allow myself 1 bag a season, so I went to Sams and got the biggest bag I could find!

    I have a question…..what could we do for Halloween if we don’t have any money for treats? Usually I stay home to pass out candy while my hubby takes our 5 kiddos. This neighborhood has LOTS of kids. This is so lame…we should have planned ahead and literally don’t have more than about 75 cents. Most everyone will know us and wonder. I have a bag of maybe 40 new toothpastes ($1 Colgate ones) but that’s it, and I think that’s pretty lame anyway…… or should we just turn the lights off? ๐Ÿ™ (Even more lame…….)

    • Adri mom

      Confide in a friend and I’m sure they will help you out with some bags of inexpensive goodies! At least I would if you were my friend and mentioned it!

    • Sammy

      Jen, you shouldn’t feel bad at all that money is tight. Most everyone I know and myself included are having a hard time making dollars stretch these days. If you have any ribbon and some construction paper (or even printer paper) — you could make little tags and tie them onto the toothpastes and put a creative note on them. It’s not fancy but it’s practical and I’m sure the mommas would appreciate it.

    • Amanda

      Why don’t you and the hubby both take the kids out and when you get home you can confiscate some of the candy (secretly of course) so you have some to hand out to the late trick or treaters. This solves your problem and helps get some of the candy out of the house!

    • Shanshan

      Toothpaste totally go together with candy!

      What about just put on your jacket and go with your husband and kids? It’s so much fun to be out and about on Halloween night, and you’ll be the one at the receiving end of candies.

    • Jaclyn K.

      You could make non-toxic Kool-aid Playdough. You just need flour, salt, oil, and Kool-aid. Or you can even make non-toxic “slime”. Put a little in baggies with a note saying what it is in small print, but write something like “Bat Poop” or something Halloween-ish? lol

      • liddy s

        That’s creative! I may use that but make them diff colors and do green for Frankenstein boogers, purple for bat boogers etc! Thank you!

    • marissa

      Maybe you could make some meringue ghosts to pass out? I’m not sure how much one batch makes as I’ve never done it. But I know they have very few ingredients.

      • marissa

        Or stickers! You can get packs of them at the dollar store. Cut out little sections (since it’s full pages of them usually) and hand those out maybe?

    EAT IT! I love candy corn! It’s my favorite!

  12. gominam

    I didn’t know you can do so many things! Too bad I don’t like them hehe ^^’

    I took a small tree or bush branch and hot glued candy corn to it and then stuck it in a vase of candy corn.
