13 Ways to Use Your Leftover Easter Candy

The Easter bunny left your kids with a large supply of candy, and they are ready to feast for days on the sweet stuff. If they do, however, they will be stuck with sugar highs, stomachaches, and potentially some cavities. Instead of letting them binge on their basket supply, why not whip up one of these delicious desserts? Your kids will be so happy with these treats, that they’ll forgive you for making them wear super cheesy Easter outfits,

    It shocks me to see how out of touch with reality you are! Is using leftover Easter candy really any type of priority you should have right now? You are exploiting Liam, Stella, Hattie and Finn on national TV. Get your priorities straight! #FakeTori

      Oh shut it,you. This is a mom BLOG for ideas for mothers to be creative.Take yourself to a magazine sight and let your silly voice be heard there. #stupidcommenters

    • Badgirls

      You are a bitch.

      You didn’t have to come to this website …… did. You didn’t have to read anything on this blog…… did. You could’ve gone to any other blog on the internet…… didn’t. So because you CHOSE to come here, look around and then leave your nasty comment and point fingers at the person who owns this blog, YOU should’ve gotten YOUR priorities straight and not visited. Keep your nastiness to yourself. Didn’t your mother ever teach you that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all?? There’s a lesson for you…………try it.

    Thanks for including Love From The Oven! :)

    Omg… These are so cute :) I’m gonna make these someday.. But a vegan version cause I’m vegan.

    And for Jenn, I think you are out of touch with reality because you are making problems out of nothing. :)

    Do your kids a favor – after Easter, dispose of anything neon pink, green, yellow or orange. Yes, once in a while these marshmallowy treats are OK – the artificially flavored/colored jellybeans tolerated. Yes, there are moms who do go to Whole Foods and buy the natural stuff…but lets get real – there will be parties, friends, relatives who dole out the other stuff. So until California has a GMO labeling bill we must assume that all that candy is chalk full of it.
