Holiday Candy Sled Stocking Stuffers
I know that for a lot of people the big Santa-like presents are the focus of the holidays, but I tend to focus more on stocking stuffers. Don’t get me wrong, I like a BIG present, both giving and getting one, but I also think stocking stuffers can be a sweet, thoughtful way to bring a little more of a personalized, homemade touch to things. Sometimes the smaller gifts, the things no one thought to ask for, can be the most meaningful.
In my family, we always had something homemade in our stockings, so I always try to include something homemade for my kiddos, too. So…..this year I’m making candy sleds with candies from Nestlé.
These sleds are great for stocking stuffers, holiday decorations, or even those last minute unexpected gifts that you need to have on hand. I love working with Nestlé products because there are so many great flavors and colors. My new found candy favorites are the SweeTARTS Soft & Chewy Ropes and Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Minis.
The SweeTARTS ropes give that sweet and tart punch that I like, and their shape makes them so useful for crafts! Seriously, you could use them for anything from a sled like mine to piping on a gingerbread house. Or, you can leave them in the package since there’s a gift tag already printed on the package, making them perfect for gift giving. The festive red and green foil wrapping on the Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Minis makes them perfect for decorations, too. Plus, SweetTARTS Soft & Chewy Ropes and the Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups are both free of artificial colors and dyes.
