What to Do with Leftover Easter Candy

I said to James yesterday, “If chocolate didn’t exist, I wouldn’t have to worry about my weight very much.”

Chocolate is my downfall.

That means I am having a hard time using willpower against all the candy in bags my kids have leftover from Easter.

Can you relate?

As I’m writing this, I’m munching on a celery stick (first a plain one and then one covered in peanut butter to wash the first plain one down). The candy would taste so much better…

My advice?

If you don’t want to eat the candy – and suffer the caloric and health consequences – get the candy out of the house fast!

For our family, the candy can go to a good home. Our afterschool Sonshine Bible Club at school.

Where can your candy go for a good cause?

Maybe your church can use it for their children’s programs. Maybe someone you know is throwing a birthday party and needs to fill a pinata or gift bags. Get creative and give excess candy away before it creates an excess mess on your hips.

And if all else fails, you can consider (gulp) throwing the candy away. As my friend says to her kids, “You can throw away candy. After all, it’s not food.”
