With Halloween just around the corner, the candy fest is about to begin!
Trick-or-treating is a childhood tradition that I remember fondly. My children have always loved when Halloween came. Going from door to door getting their favorite candies was always a joy.
However, by the time Thanksgiving comes around there is always a HUGE amount of candy laying around. What do you do with the candy? Most of the time we ended up throwing it away or using it for our Christmas gingerbread houses.
After years of handing out our own candy, seeing how much my kids have accumulated over the years, and how much the Halloween goes on sale, I thought it would be fun to give something to the kids that isn’t packed full of sugar.
