There will be plenty of candy making the rounds on Thursday night, and lots of leftovers on Friday. Here’s a tip for leftover Skittles, Jolly Ranchers, etc.: Dissolve them in vodka for crazy spirits for cocktails. We turned to the Southern Tastes panelists for other ideas for leftover candy and to find out their favorite Halloween treats. Here’s what they had to say.

Candy corn was my favorite. Push them into a banana and it looks like corn on the cob. Also loved those black and orange wrapped peanut butter toffees. We had a neighbor, Mr. King, who owned a farm near my house. If you were brave enough to walk all the way up the dark and scary driveway to the house you got a silver dollar and Mr. King would walk you back down the drive with a flash light. Whew.
