We made our candy salad with our grandchildren and they were so excited. As a grandparent, there is nothing quite as heartwarming as seeing the uncontainable excitement on your grandchildren's faces. It is in those moments that you realize the bond you share and the special memories you are creating together. Their excitement is a reminder to cherish every moment and embrace the magic of being a grandparent. So create a memory making candy salad.

First, we went shopping for their favorite candies. They enjoyed the candy shopping and selected 10 different unwrapped candies. We then combined all the different candies together in one bowl. And then the best part, they ate all the candy they could hold. (Then they went home with their parents).
