Chocolate Pumpkin Bread Made With Candy

Check out a great way to use up Holiday candy.



   I love buying candy after the holidays. Some holidays, like Halloween, you can get the candy for 70% off.  When I find chocolate candy at great prices, I stock up and freeze it. Chocolate candy freezes very well and still tastes great. The other day I found Halloween M&M's from at least five years ago in my freezer and they still tasted good. My favorite way to enjoy my frozen chocolate stash is in recipes like cookies and quick bread. The best chocolate to stock up for recipes is M&M's, Kisses, and other solid chocolate pieces. My husband likes chocolate chip pumpkin bread so I decided to make him some with the Halloween M&M's that I found in my freezer. The M&M's gave the pumpkin bread a wonderful taste and since the pieces were orange and black it blended it so well with the pumpkin bread.
