Wondering What To Do With That Leftover Candy Corn?

Wondering what to do with that leftover candy corn?  Just in time for a sweet snack at Thanksgiving – oh yum!

Add salted peanuts to the mix for a treat that takes just like a payday candy bar.  I use half nuts, half candy corn for the right balance.  Serve it up in a cute container, with festive napkins or a small plastic cup.

You’ll definitely have a crowd pleaser.  Happy Thanksgiving!

My best to you.

Most importantly, Happy Thanksgiving ya’ll!  I hope you’ve enjoyed your day as much as I have.  We’ve been together with friends and extended family all day, and loving every minute of it.  Our hearts are bubbling over with gratitude and love today.  We have so much for which to be thankful!

I’ve never been a black Friday, 3 am rise and shine kind of gal, searching for the best deal the day after Thanksgiving.  However, I do like to get a jump start on my Christmas shopping, Etsy style.  Have you ever shopped Etsy?

I think, no matter the circumstance, flowers make people smile – even if it’s just for a brief moment.  The idea that someone out there is thinking about us makes our hearts happy.  Right?
