    Works between any holiday – we just used some leftover easter candy to decorate Halloween cookies. (At 5 and 3 my kids like the idea of candy, but they’d rather scarf down cookies than candybars.)

    This is brilliant! I’m going to pick through the kids candy for likely candidates as soon as they’re not looking.
