Recipes and Tips for Healthier Living and Smarter Budgeting

Last year after Halloween we had a definite problem at our house: Waaaaay too much candy. I underestimated people's generosity, and even without going door-to-door, my kids ended up with an astonishing amount. We have always had the rule (like I had growing up) of one candy per day, but even with that, I figured my kids had enough candy to last them a year. And I didn't want it hanging around that long, offering a temptation and causing tantrums when I said no (because a child was sick, etc). So, in desperation for ideas, I posted a question on Facebook: What do you do with your kids' candy after Halloween?
I was very surprised by how many responses I received--and especially by the realization that I was definitely not the only parent who didn't want Halloween candy to stick around very long. Since I received so many great ideas, I thought it would be good to post that question again here, for the benefit of others.
So what post-Halloween traditions do you have for getting rid of the candy...?
