With Thanksgiving behind us, it’s time to start creating some Christmas candy ideas to go with our jingle bells and mistletoe, don’t you think? And with so many Christmas candies to choose from, it’s been pretty easy finding neat DIY projects that whole families can join in.
The Dayton Daily News has some cool Christmas candy ideas: namely how to make a small tree entirely out of red and white mints. And I was all excited to try it, thinking maybe I could give them out for the holidays.
And then I saw this on Amazon.com:
Can you say chocolate baby Jesus?
Too much? Maybe too much.
So there’s got to be a better use of Christmas candies than a chocolate nativity, right? I mean, who’s NOT going to feel guilty biting into the head of the Virgin Mary? Besides: I’ve neither the time nor the inclination to make a bunch of nativity sets – not when I can just buy candy online and be done with it.
Then I thought, Well – maybe candy Advent calendars. They’re fun, and you get to open a door for a wee prize every day.
But I really wanted some Christmas candy ideas that I could make with my family, or even the gang here at MetroCandy.com. And this is what I came up with:
- Make giant Santa faces using only caramel filled chocolate balls.
- Attach some chocolate ornaments to Christmas wreaths made from real or fake garland.
- Make some holiday-themed lollipops and use red or green jelly beans for decoration.
- Buy some small stockings and fill them with coal.
- Say to heck with it all and start handing out peeps.
I guess I’m not very creative, huh?
So what we really want is to hear what YOUR Christmas candy ideas are. Will you be handing out Chanukah and Christmas candies this year? Are you doing any DIY projects for the holidays? Hit us up in the comments section and let us know what you’ll be doing after you buy some candy online.
