three things to make a successful candy board
- buy your favorite candy (and a lot of it)
- some of my favorites are : reese's eggs, peeps, cadburgy mini eggs and the classic chocolate bunny
- plan the design/layout but also let your creativity flow as you make it. it's okay to change up your plan! some things just look better in our minds before we actually do them
- enjoy the process and have fun!
frequently asked questions
absolutely not! whether you celebrate easter or not, this candy board can be customized to the occasion or any kind of candy you desire. for example, if you're doing a movie night you can add all your favorite movie candy and snacks to the board.
the not so favorite answer... it depends! i took all of the jelly beans, m&ms, reese's and peeps out of the bags. however, i left the cadbury eggs and a few other chocolate items still wrapped to add a pop of color! there are also some things that just can be left wrapped.
recipes that also feature chocolate
- chocolate sea salt cookies (gluten free)
- chocolate fudge balls
- low calorie brownies (extra fudgy!!!)
- chocolate coconut date balls
- peppermint white chocolate brookies (perfect for the holiday season)
