Ideas for Using Leftover Easter Candy

After receiving a plethora of Easter candy from relatives, neighbors, friends, and the Easter Bunny, it’s easy to understand how one might wish to never see a jelly bean, Peep™, or chocolate again. You may be even thinking of tossing those plastic eggs.

Yet, think re-use instead of heading to the garbage can. Most of the candy is freeze-able, even Peeps™. Save your bounty of goodies/plastic eggs for recipes, craft projects, and more. Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

Re-using Chocolate

Re-using Malt Balls, M & M’s,™ and Reese’s Pieces™

Re-using Plastic Eggs

Re-using Peeps™

Don’t forget those little candies and jelly beans can also come in handy the next time you’re make gingerbread houses. Do you have an idea you’d like to share on re-using your holiday bounty? We’d love to hear it!
