While stuffing goody bags for my son’s Kindergarten party, I discovered that I’ve bought approximately 3 times more candy than I need.
It might have something to do with the fact that I started buying candy in September.
It’s the packaging, I tell you. Stuff is just cuter when it’s all small and individually wrapped.
Those tiny boxes of Nerds?
Irresistible in their cuteness.
Plus, I’m pretty sure that the candy and weight loss industries are in cahoots.
Because I refuse to blame myself for my shameless candy hoarding.
So if you’re anything like me (please tell me that you are), you will have an abundance of candy in the months to come. And because pawning months-old candy on your neighbors this Winter may come across as tacky, here are some suggestions for sneaking it into baked goods.
Just pass ‘em along and noone will be the wiser.

How are you spending your Halloween? My husband and I will be taking our son trick-or-treating. I am dressing up as Bride of Frankenstein because my baby totally loves me to dress up and scare everyone.
I’ll be posting a pic of us in our costumes to my Facebook page, so be on the lookout!!
What goodies are you baking up? What costume will you be wearing? I’d love for you to share some pictures on my Facebook page as well (unless you are dressed as a sexy cat, in which case– keep your pictures to yourself).
Have a happy Halloween!!!
