While the red and green mint candies are great for Christmas, you have many more easy options. Try red, white and blue for patriotic holidays like the Fourth of July, a variety of pastel shades for Easter, pink and red for Valentine’s Day, and purple and orange for Halloween.
Since there’s no cooking necessary, this is a great recipe to make with kids.
