I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I’ve enjoyed unplugging from the computer and spending time with my family, even if we’ve been swapping colds for the past couple weeks. 2013 was a great year to me, a new baby and a book deal all in the same year, and I want to go out with a bang. I’m helping a friend with her annual New Year’s Eve kid-friendly party and came up with these easy and edible party favors. She can hang these New Year’s ornaments right on her Christmas tree and pass them out to guests as they leave. The ornaments are filled with edible chocolate candy Sixlets, which comes in a festive gold color. Guests can later (after the candy is devoured) write their favorite memories of 2014, place them inside the ornament and hang on their own trees.
Plastic Ornament Balls
Cutting Machine (I used a Silhouette Cameo)
Gold Sixlets (1 – 4.5oz jar makes 3 ornaments)
Step 2: Fill the plastic balls halfway full with edible gold sixlets. Close the balls, shut tight.
Step 3: Attach a piece of gold ribbon to the ornaments for hanging purposes.
Step 4: Hang on your Christmas tree and pass out to party guests on their way out.
