Is your house now full of soooooooo much candy? Are you looking for something to do with it? Or conversely, did the kids come home with a lot of candy and you are looking for a way to get your hands on it? Either way, this could be the answer to all of your candy woes!
Think about it. Tell the kids you are going to put their candy in cookie dough and bake it into a pie. They are sure to give up at least a couple of pieces! Or use up some of the stash you don't want around the house and bring a pie to the office. Butter up the boss a bit and remove some excess stash from your house.
No matter what your inspiration is, this will be well received. MiMi also made some candy bar ice cream to go with the pie! Now that really brings it all home! All she did was make a batch of her famous vanilla ice cream and stir in some chopped up candy bars at the end. My sister Chloe is already asking for more next time she comes home!
