Those red, white and silver Kisses? The bags of red and silver foil wrapped Peppermint Patties? The sweet little Kissables, all decked out in their red, white and green Christmas best?
Buy them all.
Buy lots of them.
No, we're not going to save them for next year...
(We would never put year-old candy in our candy dishes...)
Here's what you do:
Bring them home.
And when your sweet little cherubs get home from school, set them to work separating all the reds and white/silvers from the greenies.
Once that is done, bag up the greens and put them in a safe place.
Place the reds and white/silvers in your favorite Valentine candy dish, and save the greens for St. Patty's Day.
There you go.
Aren't you lucky I'm such a post-holiday shopping genius?
