Tips and Tricks:

  • Candy Choices: Feel free to get creative with your candy selections! You can use different types of candy as long as they fit the color scheme. For instance, you can substitute red licorice pieces or white Jordan almonds.
  • Tray Size: Adjust the amount of candy based on the size of your tray. If you have a smaller tray, you might need fewer bags of candy.
  • Kids’ Involvement: This is a fun activity to do with kids! Let them help sort the candies by color and place them on the tray. It’s a great way to involve them in holiday prep.
  • Serving: For an added touch, place small candy scoops or tongs on the tray so guests can easily help themselves without disrupting the beautiful design.
