ISO creative uses for candy corn

I have two bags of candy corn. I thought about using them for a gingerbread house but let's face it, after Thanksgiving candy corn is just leftover candy. So I want to morph it into something else, maybe melt it down. Any ideas?

i'd mix in with nuts and some square cereal and make a trail mix. cinnamon would be nice with some melted butter stirred in.

OK, I just had the suggestions: "use it in a slingshot", "stick it up your nose and blow it out", and "use it for the crenellations on the battlements of a gingerbread fort" There are BOYS in my house can you tell?

The "boys" in question are both 45.

I'm about to the decision that the Candy Corn should be put in a pretty jar and saved as a decoration for next year. Donate to a school for a class art project. Or just put in a dish and know that eventually it will be gone in a few days.
