Candy Kabob’s…

I have always had a sweet tooth, ever since I was a small child. My only memory of one of my granddads was when I would go to his house when I was about 3 years old, he would turn the football over to the kids channel and he would give me flumps (which are like marshmallows), to eat while I watched the TV. He passed away shortly after I turned 3 so that is my only memory of him and still to this day whenever I think about flumps I think about him. So I’ve literally had a sweet tooth since I was a baby and it’s never really gone away.

These candy kabobs will satisfy any one with a sweet tooth and they are actually quite fun to make. They are perfect for a movie nights, family/kids parties, baby showers, weddings, DIY gifts, valentines presents, the possibilities are endless! I can’t think of an occasion where you wouldn’t want candy kabobs. They are great too because you can personalise them if you are making them for a specific person with all their favourite candy, provided you can get it on the kabob stick.

As I said you can buy any sweets that you like, just keep in mind you have to get it onto the kabob stick so things like chocolate, hard-boiled sweets and anything to small won’t work. I was in TK Maxx (as usual) and I was at the till and I saw a tub with really brightly coloured marshmallows in so I bought that which was about £2.99. Then I headed over to ASDA and bought the 5 for £1 kids sweets and got a couple of different things which I thought would work, like laces, pick and mix, gummy worms etc. Lastly I bought drumsticks squashies in bubblegum flavour.

Then I went home and started to put together the kabobs. This was the fun part, putting them together. I liked coming up with different combinations of sweets. I would say though to be careful when actually putting the sweets on the sticks because some of them can be quite tough and I did stab myself with the stick a couple of times. So just be cautious if you are letting children help you assemble the kabobs.
