What to do with all the leftover Halloween Candy?

Halloween Trick-or-Treat Bread Pudding

4 slices stale bread, spread lightly with butter, and cubed (about 3 cups)
8 to 10 mini candy bars, chopped into chunks (mainly chocolate, but all types mixed up works well.)
1/2 cup or so dried cherries
1 14 ounce can evaporated skim milk
2 large eggs, beaten with fork
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine cubed bread, candy chunks from 8 mini candy bars, and dried cherries in cooking-sprayed 1-1/2-quart baking dish. Scald milk and half-and-half. In bowl, combine eggs, sugar, salt, brandy, and cinnamon. Add scalded milk slowly to egg mixture, stirring to combine. Pour liquid over bread mixture in pan. Sprinkle top with remaining candy chunks. Bake in preheated 350-degree F. oven 50 to 60 minutes, or until firm and browned on top. Serve warm or at room temp topped with whipped cream or ice cream. Serves 4 to 6.
