Halloween is that magical time of year when you can eat as much candy as you want without being looked at like a crazy sugar fiend. Even the weeks leading up to Halloween give you free reign to munch on as many sugary sweets as you like. But who wants to eat a handful of candy, when you can eat a candy kabob? Not only are candy kabobs cute and easy to make, but they make the perfect festive treats to give out at parties, or to friends and coworkers.
- Gummy candy
- Pretzel bags (optional)
1. Soak the skewers in water for a few minutes, and then wipe them off with a paper towel.
2. Slide the pointy end of the skewer through the middle of your gummies, and stack them one on top of another. The amount of gummies that will fit depends on the length of your skewer. The kabobs look best when you use gummies with different colors, shapes, and textures, so try to mix up the variety you use.
3. You can pass these out as is, or you can finish them off with individual packaging. To do so, slide your skewer into a pretzel bag and tie off the bottom with a twist tie.
If you are planning on making a lot of these, or want more of an assortment of candy, I would recommend shopping at a few different stores to buy your gummies. Some of my favorite places to get unique candy are World Market, grocery stores with bulk sections, and specialty candy shops. You can also find different kinds online.
