4 Ways to Have the Sweetest Birthday Ever

PINPOST-1-1Every mother knows the feeling. I call it “Party Planning Overload.” For me, it’s usually that moment when I’m planning my little one’s birthday celebration and, amidst all of the theme details, cake choices, and party game options, I realize that I still haven’t decided on the party favors.

That was me…until about two days ago. That’s when I decided that instead of the usual “little bags of trinkets and candy,” I’d turn the candy into fun keepsakes like the ones below. They’re super simple to make (Hershey’s makes a variety of edible options), the kids will love them, and the moms will be asking you for instructions on how to make them for their own tot’s parties!





Pipe cleaners (Any color. I used silver because it most resembled shiny jewelry.)

1 bag of Rainbow Twizzlers, cut into “beads”

1 bag of Jolly Ranchers for “jewels”

1 bag of Hershey’s Kisses for “diamonds”


Place a Kiss at the center of the pipe cleaner. Wrap pipe cleaner around a Hershey’s Kiss. With remaining pipe cleaner, twist into ring size for child.


String colored Twizzler “beads” onto pipe cleaners to desired size of necklace or bracelet.


Craft tiara shape with pipe cleaners. Have child pick candy jewels (Twizzlers, Jolly Ranchers and Kisses). Glue candy onto tiara so she can be a candy queen!





5 packs of Kit Kats

1 bag of Hershey’s Kisses (for melting)

1 bag of Reese’s Minis

1 bag of Jolly Ranchers


Melt a handful of Hershey’s Kisses. This will be your glue. Use the chocolate glue to stick all four sides of the Kit Kat bars together. After the chocolate glue is dried and the chocolate box is stable, fill the treasure chest with a bounty of Reese’s Minis and Jolly Ranchers. Place the remaining Kit Kat bar at an angle as the chest’s lid.





1 terracotta pot

1 bag of Rainbow Twizzlers

1 bag of Reese’s Minis


Fill terracotta pot with Reese’s candies. Arrange Twizzlers in order of rainbow colors, one of each. Place each end in terracotta pot, creating an arch handle over the Reese’s candy.





1 bag of Hershey’s Kisses

1 bag of Hershey’s Nuggets

1 bag of Kit Kat Minis


Glue each of the four Kisses wheels onto the bottom of one Kit Kat bar. Glue a Hershey’s Nugget on top of the Kit Kat bar. For added fun, add a cookie teddy bear or gummy character as a driver!
