How to Use Easter Candy in Bulk as Easter Egg Stuffers

The second step to buying Easter candy in bulk is using it as Easter egg stuffers. Here are some tips and tricks:

Prepare Your Eggs and Candy:

  • To choose the right size and color of plastic eggs for your candy, measure the dimensions of your largest piece of candy and find an egg that fits it snugly but not too tightly. You can also use different sizes of eggs for different amounts of candy.
  • To clean and sanitize your eggs before filling them with candy, wash them with warm water and soap or wipe them with alcohol pads. Let them dry completely before stuffing them.
  • Some examples of creative ways to decorate or personalize your eggs are stickers (with names, cartoon characters, animals, sports), markers (with dots, stripes, patterns), glitter glue (for sparkle), and ribbons (for bows)


Fill Your Eggs With Candy:

To fill your eggs with different kinds of candy without overstuffing or breaking them, use a small spoon or funnel to scoop or pour the candy into the egg halves. Close the egg firmly but gently until it snaps shut. Shake the egg lightly to make sure it doesn't rattle or open easily. If it does, add more candy or tape the edges together.

To mix and match different candies for more fun and variety, use a randomizer tool like this one: https://www.random.org/lists/ to generate a list of combinations from your bulk Easter candy options. You can also create themed combinations based on:

  • colors (red-white-blue)

  • hot tamales and marshmallows (for a spicy-sweet contrast)
  • chocolate coins and fortune cookies (for a lucky surprise)
  • licorice and cotton candy (for a chewy-fluffy texture)
