What can I do with butterscotch hard candies (besides eat them)?

Hello. I have an over-abundance of butterscotch hard candies leftover from a party. Is there something else I can do with them, besides just sucking on them? I'm considering crushing them into small pieces and using them in place of butterscotch candies, or even crushing them into a powder to sprinkle on popcorn and desserts. Any thoughts?

I like Merrill's idea of crushing them into vanilla ice cream.
And/or make flavored vodka.

I'd crush them and mix them into vanilla ice cream for a rendition of New Zealand's favorite ice cream flavor: Hokey Pokey!

You can probably melt them in cream and make ice cream. Or melt them in cream to make a sauce. Or melt down and toss with popcorn, or make popcorn balls.
