A staggering statistic about Easter rightfully centers on the sheer amount of chocolate and candy purchased for that one day. Americans spend billions (that's with a "b") on Easter candy each year, and you can't imagine that all those giant chocolate bunnies, peeps and jelly beans get consumed within the course of one day.
That leaves men, women, children and parents alike searching high and low for places to stash their leftover Easter candy. Rather than take all that extra and simply dump it into a trash can, why not do something a little more progressive and creative with it? And that doesn't mean save it and store it with the hopes that you can work enough magic to make the candy and chocolate last until Halloween.
Plenty of Easter candy that doesn't get consumed often will find its way to a candy jar or dish somewhere in the home, and that only leads to munching and snacking on the chocolate in the month of April and regretting it a few weeks later when bathing suit season hits.
Some savvy Eastern enthusiasts might decide that they're intent on keeping the uneaten chocolate around longer than its presumed shelf life and will decide to freeze it and maybe transform a few bunny ears into some delicious and delectable chocolate chip cookies in the near future.
And what about those famous Peeps? These marshmallow treats would be the perfect menu item for a nighttime, springtime bonfire in conjunction with chocolate and graham crackers. In short, Peeps make great replacements for plain, old white marshmallows in your S'mores snacks.
