Down. Set. Bite! Prepping Candy Snacks For Game Day

November 22nd, 2015 by Jonah Half

Football_Candy_Snacks_SnickersFrom football themed birthday parties to the once-a-year Super Bowl Bash you throw, football season offers a variety of ways to celebrate your favorite team’s triumphs and mourn their losses. No matter the outcome of the game, CandyFavorites.com is here to join in the celebration! We’re here to help you score a touchdown with your game day candy snacks, so step away from the chips and dip and prepare to make your house game day headquarters with a few of these fun and fast ideas!

Chocolate Footballs

Reese's_Football_Candy_SnacksThe perfect candy snack for any armchair quarterback, the rich chocolate in these football shaped treats is the perfect bite-sized indulgence to munch during particularly nail-biting moments. If you want to watch the crowd go wild for a chocolatey snack, consider building a few Game Day Peanut Butter Cups! There’s no need to labor over cookies cut into football shapes, or meticulously frost a cake to look like a football field! Simply gather a few chocolate footballs, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and a little green frosting. Dab a little of the frosting onto the top of an unwrapped Reese’s Cup, top with a chocolate football and you’ll be ready for kickoff in no time!

Football Truffles
Chocolate_Football_TrufflesLooking for something a little more rich to satisfy your guests? This recipe for Football Truffles from House of Yum, is a little more time intensive, however, the treat is worth the wait! All you need to get started are Oreos, cream cheese, dark chocolate and white chocolate. Grind up the Oreos into a fine powder and mix with the cream cheese to create a thick cookie mixture. Then, take about a tablespoon of the cookie mixture and shape it into football shapes. Set them on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper and set them in them in the refrigerator for about ten minutes to solidify. Melt the dark chocolate, and dip each football in the chocolate and then place back on the waxed paper to cool. Finish each football by melting the white chocolate and “frosting” laces onto the footballs. Score!

Build A Candy Buffet

What better way to show your support for a team than by wearing their colors? Add an extra hint of team pride to your living room during the game by creating an easy, color-coordinated candy spread. All you need is a table and a little creativity and you’re well on your way to throwing a football bash your friends and family won’t forget!

Who doesn’t love to celebrate a good football game? Whether you’re a diehard football fan, or you just like to get together with friends and family, your snacks for game day will be sure to put smiles on your guests faces – even if the score at the end of the game doesn’t! Now there’s just one question to ask yourself – Are YOU ready for some football?

Unforgettable Fall Candy And Turkey Day Treats

October 29th, 2015 by Jonah Half

Fall_CandyWith October winding down, we’re already thinking ahead to the next major holiday, Thanksgiving! The traditions, the focus on the good things in life, and of course the delicious food are some of our favorite things about this Fall holiday. Nothing brings families together quite like Thanksgiving does, and if you’re hosting guests this year, the pressure is on to impress them with terrific food and a fun atmosphere. Check out these delightful fall candy ideas that will make your Thanksgiving gathering one to remember for years to come – but make sure there’s not too much sweet snacking that goes on before the main event!

Oreo Turkeys

After your guests are stuffed with real turkey, put them into a food coma with these adorable fall candy turkeys. Doubling as festive decorations, you’ll need Oreos, Candy Corn, Reese’s Cups, Whoppers, chocolate icing, and yellow icing to create these turkeys.

Start by adding some chocolate frosting to the top of one Oreo and then attach five candy corns to it with the tips down. Next, add chocolate frosting onto another Oreo and attach it to the first Oreo so they make an L-shape. Attach the Reese’s Cup and the Whopper to the Oreo to create a turkey body and head. Finally, with yellow frosting, glue on the white tip of a candy corn to the Whopper for a beak, and then draw on eyes and feet. Your guests might think they’re too cute to gobble up!

Fall Candy Acorns

These fall candy acorns are the perfect edible decoration for this year’s Thanksgiving table. For each acorn, use icing or peanut butter to frost the bottom of a bite-sized Nutter Butter cookie. Next, stick on an unwrapped Hershey Chocolate Kiss candy. Finally, use icing to adhere a peanutbutter chip to the top to resemble a stem and you’re finished! Place them in a bowl for guests to snack on throughout the day.

Thanksgiving is one of the best times of the year to show off your hostess skills. With these adorably festive fall candy decorations, you’ll have guests asking you to host Thanksgiving every year. Head over to our website and browse more Autumn and Fall Candy for all of your Thanksgiving needs and create your own recipes!

Take Your Candy Colors Beyond Orange & Black

October 6th, 2015 by Jonah Half

bulk_candy_colorsWhen you think of Halloween, chances are the first colors that pop into your mind are orange and black. After all, orange is the color of pumpkins, bonfires, and changing leaves, and black represents death, darkness, bats, black cats, and cauldrons – all of which are popular Halloween themes and symbols. However, your Halloween candy color options are not limited to just orange and black. Blood red, deep purple, lime green, and ghostly white are a few of our favorite underrated Halloween colors. Combining bulk candy in these colors can take the ghoulish theme of your Halloween decorations, and Halloween candy, to a whole new level this season!

Green

What says spooky more than green skinned monsters, witches’ brews, and slime? Add eerie green to your Halloween decorations this year with our selection of green bulk candy. Channel the wicked witch of the west with a bowl of dark green M&M’s or add shimmer lime green sixlets to a cauldron bowl for a deliciously creepy potion.

Red

There’s no denying that Halloween is a gory holiday — bloodthirsty vampires and crazed zombies are just two of the not-so-nice characters that we see a lot of this time of the year. Draw inspiration for your candy colors from the scary side of Halloween! A bowl of our Red Cherry Licorice Bites will look like it belongs next to a Vampire’s coffin.

Purple

Purple has always been associated with the night, mysticism, and witches’ hats, making it a magical addition to your Halloween theme this year. Create a sense of mystery with some of our purple candy by topping off your Halloween party punch with Grape Pop Rocks or decorating cupcakes with Grape Rock Candy.

White

It wouldn’t be Halloween without ghosts — they’re one of Halloween’s spookiest characters after all (except for Casper the Friendly Ghost, of course). Because of this staple Halloween character, we think white is a great color to incorporate into your decorations this year. Our ghostly white gumballs are perfect for the job! Dum Dums lollipops can easily be covered with white fabric and tied to create adorable ghosts for all of your trick-or-treaters.

Add some diversity to your Halloween candy colors this year with some of these underrated choices. We have a huge selection of colorful candy for you to choose from, so you’ll be the sweetest house on the block!
