Making Your Own Assorted Candy Box
Making your own assorted candy box is not as hard as it may seem. If you walk into any See's Candy store, or certain malls, you will see hundreds of these boxes laid out for people too lazy to make their own. If you're not one of these people, then keep reading because now we will show you how to make your own candy box, which will literally delight whoever you give it to.
Step 1: The Box- You can either purchase a regular box or make your own. If you can't find one that you like, then making your own is simply a matter of cutting, stapling, or taping to make it more professional. You will also want to wrap the box completely, and wrap any corners or flaps.
Step 2: Glue the candy wrappers down onto the box so that the candies don't move around when the box is moved around.
Step 3: Make the candies (optional). Some of you may just want to buy different types of chocolates, but if you want to make everything yourself, then you will have to learn how to make some chocolates by researching more in-depth and following these recipes.
- Pecan Caramels
- Candied Orange Peels
- Almond Joy
- Peanut Clusters
- Caramel Marshmallow
- Peanut Butter Cups
- Butter Toffee
- Chocolate Coffee Caramels
- Chocolate Pistachio Truffles
- Coffee Chocolate Truffles
- Cookie Dough Truffles
- Chocolate Dipped Bacon
Once you have made all of these candies and chocolates, you will proceed to the last step.
Step 4: Assembling the Chocolates- This step is all up to your imagination. Since you already have all the wrappers in place, all you have to do is put each piece of candy or chocolate where you think it will be more attractive. Finally, you can add a ribbon or a message tag on the exterior of the box for whoever you're going to be gifting it.
In conclusion, in this article we discussed how you can create your own assorted candy box for Christmas or any other special occasion. It's a fairly easy process, and all it takes is a bit of time, patience, and some ingenuity to get the shape of box you like, wrap it in foil that will make an impact, make the candies and chocolates, and finally set them in the right place. We hope you have fun making and eating your candy creation; the recipients of your assorted candy box will be delighted, and more so when they find out you made them yourself.
