After Christmas sales are the perfect time to stock up on candy. There is still quite a bit out there. I like to buy the red and green candies. These are perfect for Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day that are coming up in the next two months.
I like to make M&M Cookies. You can use your favorite chocolate chip recipe. You can use my Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe HERE. Using two bags of Christmas M&Ms, open and sort them into 2 colors. Put them back into bags and label them. Make recipe dough then add M&Ms instead of chocolate chips, keeping some to place on top of the cookies. Bake as directed.
I like to keep a candy dish out at different holidays. The candy kisses can easily be sorted into red and green. The silver ones can go with both. Now you have Valentine candy and St. Patrick's Day candy. These work well for classroom parties too.
