Is your family particular about their candy? Have they eaten through their Christmas and Valentine’s Candy, and now your pantry is taken up by things they’ll never eat? If you have bulk holiday candy and you’re ready to get rid of it to make room for your family’s favorites, here are three ways you can without it going to waste:

Share It: Every office has a candy dish. Put a dish in the break room and fill it with the unopened candy. Or, if you’re ok with visitors at your desk, bring a pretty dish to work and keep it stocked. Everyone has a sweet tooth, so you’ll be able to get rid of the surplus in a snap. Fair warning though, you may be expected to keep up with the dish once your original candy is gone!

Make Something Sweet: Speaking of the office, need something for the next potluck? There are tons of dessert recipes that use candy as an ingredient! This is a great way to get rid of candy and bring a show-stopping dessert to a school event, book club, or to a neighborhood party.

Donate It: Don’t want to fuss with baking or bringing candy to work? You can donate your candy! There are tons of organizations that will gladly accept your unopened candy. Check out this blog post from Mommy Poppins on organizations that will take your candy or on how you can donate it to your local community!

With the temperatures quickly dropping, Hot Chocolate is a staple for friends and family to enjoy. Spice up a get together with a Hot Chocolate Bar! Everyone will love that they can customize their own beverage to their liking. Here are a few things you should have for a successful Hot Chocolate bar:

A Crockpot. Keep your Hot Chocolate warm with a crockpot. Use a ladle and a good sized mug to enjoy this beverage. By using a crockpot, you minimize any injuries touching hot lids and cut down on clean up afterward.

Candy. Chopped up candy makes a delicious topping on a cup of hot cocoa. Peppermint, M&M’s, and marshmallows are the standards, but you can get as creative as you’d like here!

Whipped Cream & Marshmallows. Can you even have cocoa without whipped cream or marshmallows? We didn’t think so! Bonus points if you use flavored whipped cream or colored shaped marshmallows.

Did you know that December 26th is National Candy Cane Day? Whether you love the classic, peppermint candy cane or one of the crazy new flavors that appears every year, you have to celebrate this iconic candy. But how much do you know about this traditional holiday treat? Here are a few things you may not have known:

Legend has it that these treats have been spreading Christmas cheer since 1670! Apparently, a German church patron shaped the candy to look like shepherd hooks and handed them out to children during the church service. Why? To keep them quiet and occupied during the long service!

These treats didn’t make it to the United States until the mid 1800’s! They also didn’t add the red stripe until the 1900’s. Overall, over 1.2 billion candy canes make it to shelves in the U.S. during the holiday season every year.

The world’s largest candy cane probably won’t fit in your home! The Guinness World Record goes to a Geneva pastry chef who made a candy cane that measured over 51 feet long and made with over 900 pounds of sugar.

Candy corn…you either love it or you hate it! Regardless of how you feel about it, October 30th is National Candy Corn Day! Grab a handful of this classic fall candy and check out some facts about it that you may not have known about:

Candy Corn was invented in the 1880s by George Renninger and the Wunderle Candy Company, but later mass produced by Goelitz Candy Company, now known as the Jelly Belly Candy Company. Originally, candy corn had to be made by hand, each color being added on separately and molded into shape. Because of how time consuming this was, they decided to make this a seasonal candy, like how crops were harvested seasonally. With this and the shape, Candy Corn came to be.

Since then, Candy Corn has been made into different variations. Kernels with brown tops, called Indian Corn for Thanksgiving, and even red and green “corn” for Christmas. This “mellocreme” candy has also been made into pumpkins. Regardless of what it’s been made into, over 35 million pounds will be made this fall. That’s roughly 9 billion kernels will go into candy dishes and treat bags. You’ll even find candy corn flavored products, from cookies, drinks, even bagels!
