If you're anything like me, you think of holidays solely in terms of candy. Clearly Halloween can't be beat in the sheer volume department and nothing cures a broken heart like discount Valentine's Day chocolates. Yet one holiday stands apart from the rest when it comes to the ultimate sugar rush. Easter in America is practically synonymous with marshmallow chicks, hollow chocolate rabbits, and eggs filled with anything from peanut butter to raspberry jam. For all its delicious treats, there's still the conundrum of finding things to do with leftover Easter candy.
Unlike other festivities where sweets are involved, there's a much higher chance you're going to be stuck with a bunch of uneaten goodies since Easter is the biggest day for candy and chocolate companies, according to CNBC. Yup, you read that correctly. Santa, Cupid, and even Mr. Jack-O-Lantern don't stand a chance against the Easter bunny, who rakes in more than $800 million in candy sales.
So if you're one of the many people who have purchased copious amounts of sugary goodness for Easter, you know you'll probably be finding Cadbury remnants and open packages of Peeps for days to come. Instead of tossing out uneaten treats or letting them go stale in the back of your pantry, check out these incredible recipes to transform your Easter candy leftovers into something new.
