Candy skewers are one of my faves, they look absolutely adorable. And guess what…There really is no recipe. You simply get a bamboo skewer, slide a bunch of your favorite candies on them and serve.

Probably not a great idea for super small kids because of the pointy ends but awesome for older kids. If you are worried you can use pieces at the ends or cut off the pointy ends!

How to Make Valentines’ Day Kabobs

Creating Valentine’s Day candy kabobs is a fun and festive way to celebrate the occasion. Here’s a simple guide to help you make delightful Valentine’s Day candy kabobs:

  1. Prepare Your Candies:
    • Unwrap or separate all the candies you plan to use. Organize them by type and size.
  2. Thread the Candies:
    • Begin threading the candies onto the wooden skewers. Mix and match different candies to create a visually appealing arrangement. Consider alternating colors and shapes for variety.
    • Use melted chocolate to attach tiny candies to marshmallows!
  3. Leave Space at the Ends:
    • Leave some space at the ends of the skewers to make it easy to hold or to tie a decorative ribbon.
  4. Secure the Ends:
    • Once you’ve threaded the candies, make sure to secure the ends. You can do this by adding a larger candy or tying a knot at the end of the skewer.
  5. Tie Decorative Ribbons:
    • Use decorative ribbons to tie a bow around the base of each candy kabob. This not only adds a festive touch but also helps hold the candies in place.
  6. Optional: Add Tags or Labels:
    • If you’re giving these candy kabobs as gifts, consider attaching small tags or labels with personalized messages or the recipient’s name.
  7. Arrange in a Vase or Container:
    • Place the candy kabobs in a vase or a decorative container. This not only serves as a display but also makes it easy for people to grab one.
  8. Optional: Gift Wrapping:
    • If you’re presenting the candy kabobs as gifts, consider placing them in small cellophane bags and tying the tops with more decorative ribbons.
  9. Store in a Cool Place:
    • Keep the candy kabobs in a cool place until they’re ready to be enjoyed to prevent melting, especially if using chocolates.
  10. Share and Enjoy:
    • Whether you’re hosting a Valentine’s Day party or sharing these with friends and family, your homemade candy kabobs are sure to bring smiles and sweetness to the occasion.
