Ideas for Halloween candy

Not sure what to do with the mountain of candy that may invade your house this weekend? Consider participating in the Halloween Candy Buy Back.

Here’s how it works…
* Participating dentists “buy” back kids’ Halloween candy at a scheduled event
* Candy is “bought” with cash, coupons, toothbrushes, creative exchanges
* Dentists can partner with local businesses to give away coupons for food, services, goods, etc. They can give away the Hygiene Kits, they can set up an Opportunity Prize–each kid gets a ticket per pound of candy for an opportunity drawing to win special prizes, etc.
* Dentists then send the candy to Operation Gratitude or other Military support groups
* Operation Gratitude sends the candy to U.S. Military deployed in harm’s way

Or a few other ideas:
* Donate candy to teachers
* Reuse the candy in a Pinata
* Make some AWESOME brownies! Take a standard box brownie then cut up various chocolate, sprinkle the top and stick it back in the over to melt a bit…
* Take a majority of the candy and save it for decorating gingerbread houses at Christmas. This is an easy way to get a lot of variety.
