My kids are getting really excited for Halloween! Of course, they get to dress up and run around the neighborhood with friends, but what they’re most excited about is trading in their candy. We aren’t fans of all of the processed candy they receive, so our kids get to trade in 4 pieces for extra reading time at night. They’re still young, so staying up an extra 15 minutes at night is a huge deal. Sometimes they trade it in for extra time on the computer during the weekends. It keeps mom and dad sane and the kids happy, so it works for our family.
I like to have a piece of candy occasionally, and making some of our favorite candy bars at home isn’t difficult. The kids have fun helping, too. This recipe for homemade almond joy candy bars only takes about 20 minutes to prepare and without all the preservatives and unhealthy ingredients, you can enjoy them guilt-free!
