Witch Hat Party Favors

| Candy, DIY, Halloween, Party ideas

I’m feeling a little witchy with Halloween coming up! Not in an evil witch way. Ok maybe sometimes I wish I could act a little more witchy or sometimes I do act witchy like when I tell my daughter to pick up her toys for the 100th time. Overall I think I’m a good witch and handing out little witch hat treats makes me a really good witch. I always liked the spooky stuff as a child but as a mom I also enjoy the cutesy side of Halloween. These easy diy witch hat party favors are really cute to add candy too or little Halloween gifts, I made them tiny to be able to make enough for a whole group of kids. Plus, if you want to get all of the candy out of the house so you don’t eat it all(or is that just me?) this is a cute way to give it out to friends. Little chocolates or any little and cute candies would be perfect for these witch hat party favors. read more

Halloween Candy Wrappers

| Candy, Crafts, Halloween

Halloween is the time of candy. Everyone has a favorite and these is something for everyone. I made some cute and simple Halloween candy wrappers that work for any kind of candy bars big and small. Just adjust the size based on what type of candy you are wrapping. These are cute for kids and to have in the candy bowl to hand out on Halloween. I of course had to add some googley eyes because everything is cuter with google eyes. I had taken a little break from using them but I am back to using them all the time! Seriously, they are the cutest for all kinds of kids crafts and party projects. I think the little frankensteins are of the cutest of these ones but I love them all. I made mummies, frankensteins, and jack o lanterns. Cute, cute, and cute! My daughter absolutely loved them. I use her as a tester of projects to make sure things will be kid approved. They passed her test. Although, anything with candy passes her test. read more

Fun Treat Yourself Gift Basket

There are few things in life that I love more than chocolate. The women in my life are one of those things that I love even more than chocolate! Earlier this summer I moved across the country. I used to live just a few minutes from my parents and sister. My family has always been very close and it is hard to be apart from them. While I am enjoying the beach life in Florida and starting my own family, I do miss my loved ones! One great way to stay connected to loved ones is to send gifts. My sister is one of the most amazing women I know. She puts her family first and doesn’t do enough to treat herself. I wanted to give her a spa day experience at home. This gift was easy to put together with the 31 oz DOVE Chocolate PROMISES from Sam’s Club, a few do it yourself elements to give it a personal touch, and all wrapped together in a soft robe. I made cute printable tags for the overall gift and individual items in it. I also will show how easy it is to use the chocolate canister from DOVE Chocolate PROMISES to make a fun spa gift. However, you have to take out some of the chocolate and keep it for yourself to make a spa gift canister. It is a tough job but somebody has to do it! The variety of flavors in the DOVE Chocolate PROMISES includes Dark Chocolate, White & Dark Chocolate Swirl, and Sea Salt Caramel & Dark Chocolate. They are all so good. These two spa gift ideas are perfect for showing friends you appreciate them. My sister can have a whole fun and relaxing day with all of these goodies. Gifts as a surprise are always nice and who wouldn’t love being sent this fun gift or having it hand delivered to their doorstep. read more

Back To School Chocolate Bars

| Candy, DIY, kids craft

Back to school is a fun time for kids and parents. I think by the end of summer everyone is ready for back to school! What better way to celebrate than with some chocolate. Kids can practice writing letters on chocolates or these are fun to send in school lunches for the first week of school. Nothing complicated to make since there are enough things to do to get ready for school. My daughter is starting first grade and the school supply list is growing! My daughter is excited for this year because it is real grown up kid learning. These chocolate bars are kind of like little chalk boards to write letters. If kids are making them they can write the letters on with a paint brush or with chocolate bottles. It could get messy but it’s also really fun! Plus, every occasion needs chocolate, that is just a fact. Momma needs some chocolate during back to school time that is for sure! Make these back to school chocolate bars for a fun back to school activity with kids! read more

Flamingo Chocolate Pops

| Candy, Desserts

I love flamingos! They are so fun for summer. Since the invention of flamingo pool floats and flamingo drink floats they have become a summer staple. I could not be happier about that. They are just so pretty for celebrations! I love all things pink so bring on the pink flamingos! I made these adorable flamingo chocolate pops that were really easy to make. All you need are candy melts and some gold or pink pipe cleaners for the legs. I am working on my video skills so I did a video for how to make these but I can also walk you through the steps. read more

Free Printable Peep S’more Gift Tags

| Candy, Easter, Printables

Confession, I used to not like Peeps. I’ve always thought they were an adorable candy but they are super sweet. I have found that they are best when you add them to something. Add a bit of chocolate and graham crackers and they are so tasty! I love Peeps in a s’more. These also have the added fun of the colorful chocolate bark wit some sprinkles. It is a colorful candy dream. The more color the better for spring and Easter! I made these with cute little printable s’more tags that look like peeps. They say “More S’mores For My Peeps” and “I Like You S’more Than Most Peeps”. Cute and silly tags to match the cute peeps. These are fun for kids and adults alike. Adults maybe even more than kids, I will have to hand some out to my girlfriends. I used blue Peeps, I was going to pick the purple my favorite color but the purple ones faces weren’t as cute, they were a little lopsided. It happens! I do have a pet peeve with Peeps. They have all of these fun colors but I don’t want to pick one I want a mix of them all. I’m too indecisive to pick one color. So Peeps peeps please put all the colors in one package! read more

Decorated Dollar Store Chocolate Box Gifts

| Candy, Crafts, Valentines Day

brush stroke painted chocolate boxes

Whenever I am at the store around Valentine’s Day I see these little chocolate boxes with cheesy pictures on them. I typically just pass them by because the pictures of flowers or puppies don’t call to me. This year I decided those boxes could look really cute with a little extra love. They just needed a makeover to turn into the perfect gifts. It doesn’t take much to make these decorated dollar store chocolate box gifts. All I did was add some paint in a few fun colors and look how pretty they turned out! The paint completely transformed the boxes into modern fun gifts. These would be great gifts for Galentine’s Day, to hand out to friends, or family. I always have a hard time thinking of little gifts to give that also have a bit of a personal touch to them. Also, I sometimes┬ájust need an excuse to paint something. It had been way too long since I had taken out my paint brushes. I wouldn’t say I am the best painter ever but since I am not a professional I know anyone could make these pretty boxes. read more

Make Colorful Chocolates

| Candy, Valentines Day

Pretty colorful chocolates

I like everything to be bright and colorful, including my food! It doesn’t take much to make boring brown chocolates look bright and cheery. This Valentine’s Day I am giving my daughter little treats spread out throughout the month. Nothing expensive just little gifts to show her I care. She will be getting stickers, a little puzzle, figurines, and of course her favorite is the chocolates. Honestly, it’s my favorite part of Valentine’s Day too! The best part of giving her this box of chocolates was when she opened it up and was completely shocked by the fun colors. I┬ámade these with a dollar store chocolate box. Buy a bunch of little chocolate boxes to hand out to friends or family, the more the merrier! Anyone could make colorful chocolates with these easy steps, trust me if I can do it you can too. I made them for my daughter in her favorite colors pink and turquoise. However, you could use any colors you want such as red and white for Valentine’s Day. You can also buy a bag of heart shaped chocolates and then put the finished colorful chocolates in little clear bags. read more

Candy Cane Snowmen

| Candy, Christmas, DIY

Snowman candy canes

I always want to hand out little gifts for the holidays. I’m not usually a candy cane person but you have to have a candy cane around Christmas! I found these Starburst candy canes and had to try them out. They are tasty and they look really cute as snowmen! Candy cane snowmen are even cuter than the candy cane reindeer. They are fun to hand out to friends or in kids classes. Dress them up with a little scarf or ear muffs! Some I made with faces, others without, either way I think they look adorable. read more
