Too Much Halloween Candy?

The Glenview Patch has published an excellent article by Sue Kirchner on alternate ways to use your excess Halloween candy.  Maybe you are happy to use all your candy yourself but the ideas offered in "7 Ways to Use Your Leftover Halloween Candy" are thoughtful and creative for those who are blessed with more Halloween bounty than can be comfortably used.  Kudos to the Glenview Patch.
