It is no secret that my family loves sweets. Take a look at these faces!
But Halloween came and went, and I am still getting caught with my hand in the candy jar. I don't know how many times Brody has caught me eating his candy. He is very clever though and would quickly say, "That's alright Mom, I like to share... Can I have one?" And I would respond with, "Of course!"
If you are like me, not only are you stuck with a ton of leftover candy from trick or treating, but I actually buy more candy when they go on sale after the holiday. I also love to bake, and there are a ton of fun recipes for the upcoming holidays where you can use your Halloween candy to make more sweet treats. At least when I bake, I make sure to get the treats out of my house immediately! Take a look at these recipes that all use candy as an ingredient.
