Cold weather may have limited the number of ghosts and goblins trick-or-treating at your house this year. So, what do you do with the leftover Halloween candy?

Make candy-infused vodka of course.

The CandyStore.com blog has compiled recipes that make good use of that confectionery. You can find the full list on their website but here's a sampling:

Starburst Infused Vodka

Starburst, a soft, taffy-like candy is perfect for vodka infusion according to mixthatdrink.com. “The vodka doesn’t alter the flavor of the candies at all, so it’s going to taste the same as if you ate two (or more) Starbursts together.”

Skittles Infused Vodka 

The candy, which comes in five colors, will dissolve overnight, leaving you with vibrant candy-infused vodkas.

Candy Corn Martini 

Combining candy corn infused vodka and butterscotch schnapps makes the perfect – but very sweet – Candy Corn Martini according to the wearenotmartha.com website.

“The most difficult part is pouring the candy corn in the vodka and letting it soak for about 3 hours, while you watch it turn the most ridiculously bright shade of orange ever and try not to eat the remaining candy corn straight from the bag.”

And for those of you looking forward to Thanksgiving, there is also a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Infused Vodka.
