The Beginner’s Guide to Making Holiday Candy

No matter which holiday you are celebrating during the winter season, it is a great time of year to show your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers how much you appreciate everything that they have done for you this year with a little bag of sweet treats. With all of the peppermint and chocolate candy options, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin! Luckily, today we have assembled a handy beginner’s guide to making holiday candy to whip you into shape for the holiday season, including how you can use some of the tools you already have to make delicious delights that everyone will love!

Candy Molds
Whether you fill it with hard candies, mints or chocolate, everyone will love all of the fun festive shapes of our favorite holiday molds. At such affordable prices, candy molds are a great place to stock up with a variety of options to give your dessert tray personality. The cute mini Pine Cone Mold is ideal for chocolate, and the Tree Sucker Mold would be perfect to fill with bright colored candy melting wafers. When making lollipops, do not forget the most important part — the sucker sticks!

While red, green and white candy melts are always safe and reliable options around the holidays, this is the time of year to be adventurous and make your candies as bright and colorful as the ornaments on your Christmas tree.  Or, try dipping your favorite crunchy snacks like pretzel sticks or twists into our premium chocolate melts and then dip in your favorite multi colored sprinkles, or even crush up candy canes and dip chocolate melts into the powder.

The holiday season is no time to be shy with your candy packaging. Now more than ever is time to go over the top with bows, curled ribbon and bright colored packaging. From gold and silver doilies to red and green twist ties for cello bags, Sweet Treat Supply has you covered, whether you are bringing a tray of treats to a friend’s party or giving out small bags as favors. For a real blank canvas, try putting your candies inside one of our simple White Cake Boxes. If you have children who are eager to help with the candy preparations, but you are hesitant to have handling hot candy melts, they will love decorating the boxes!

We all know how easy it is for the holiday season to become jam packed with gift shopping, school activities and office holiday parties, and it is tempting to grab the first tray of holiday cookies at the grocery store as you dash out the door. However, with so many simple options in the candy making world, it is a fun way to add a personalized and handmade touch to your gifts and treats that everyone will love and appreciate!
