Happy Halloween, all! What could be more perfect to share on a day where candy consumption is at the all-time high than some Halloween candy kabobs? The Valentine’s candy kabobs I posted a couple of years ago were such a hit with the kids (and readers! They’ve been pinned almost 150,000 times – wow!). But, I thought Halloween just seemed like the perfect holiday to try another version with. The boys of course thought it was such a great “craft”. 😉 In addition to the fun of eating them, candy kabobs are SO easy to make! All you need are bamboo skewers and a variety of soft/gummy candies. If you’re handing them out as favors, then you can put them in cute treats bags & tie them up with a ribbon. We had gummy spiders, witches, and jack-o-lanters, sour gummy pumpkins, mallowcreme pumpkins, and Halloween jelly beans. The process is really quite easy – just put the candies on to the bamboo skewers! Depending on the size of your candies, you’ll probably use about 10-15 per skewer. Insert candies onto the skewer, pressing the candies a little more than halfway down on the skewer. Alternate styles, sizes, flavors, and/or colors. You really can’t go too wrong. Little Brother (he’s 3) even made the one on the right of the picture above almost entirely on his own! Tips: Just be careful with the bamboo skewers as the end is definitely really pointed! So, make sure you don’t poke yourself (and this of course, is what kids need the most help with). Also, make sure that the skewer only gets inserted about halfway through the top candy (so that the skewer doesn’t poke out the top). When the skewer is full, you’ll have something that resembles this: Then, of course, for added fun, you can make them part of a display, a centerpiece, or put in cute little treat bags for party favors or little Halloween gifts. I thought they’d be cute to bring to a teacher for school on Halloween! Or, they might even be a fun “edible craft” to do with some of the Halloween candy from trick-or-treating tonight!
