candy sleighs

Last week at Bring 'n Brag, one of the ladies showed us how she made candy sleighs for Christmas gifts. update! The lady who showed us the sleighs is Lois. Thanks Lois! Joellen and I decided we needed to make our own!


They were fun to make. We made a dozen of them in about an hour and a half (plus wasted time driving around town looking for Christmas ribbon!) I think it was much easier doing them together so we had extra hands. One person to hold while the other one glues... especially for the first step! First you glue a kitkat bar to two candy canes to create the base. We used hot glue and ran a strip of glue down each candy cane.



Next, attach 10 mini hershey bars on top, with just a drop of glue for each. You stack them in a pyramid, first 4, then 3, then 2, then 1, like this:




After all the glue is hard and secure, glue ribbon around your "packages" and a bow on the top. That's it! so cute and fun and your recipient can keep it as a decoration or take it apart and eat all the candy!



some of our finished sleighs




I think you should all make some. Come on. You know you want to!

Oh, these are so adorable - I have to put this in my idea file for next year!

UGH! Don't show me THIS!!?? I don't have TIME to make any and now I really, really want to!!! But there is always next year. Right?

Sally said...

These are adorable! I would love to make some if I can find the time! Maybe I'll put it on my list of things to do on the 23rd or 24th...

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

Hey! Made 4 of them this evening. My helper was getting bored. Lol! I will continue tomorrow.

Michele said...

Wow! These are cute! Great idea.....thanks for sharing it.

In my own words..... Divah Latte said...

Does the glue gun melt the chocolate? Is it hard to pull apart and eat??

Thanks!

Ellyn said...

no, not at all! I don't use a lot of glue, just a drop to hold them together & the wrappers protect the chocolate (I would have answered you privately but you are a no reply blogger, no email given)

Summer said...

these are very cute and could be customized for each person. I am thinking I would glue the little gum packs....the "old timey" kind that have 5 sticks in each pack...juicy fruit and double mint....instead of the chocolate bars....you could also probably use glue dots from the scrap book section of your hobby store if you didnt want to use hot glue but I bet the glue is stronger...thanks! I think I will try this too!

How cute! I'd be tempted to eat the candy along the way ;)

I just made a fun little Youtube video using your creative idea. Thank you so much for sharing. I had a lot of fun making these. They are just to darling to not make. These were a must even if they were made last minute.

I am definitely going to make these. So cute, so simple. Thanks for the idea and pictures.

Try using one of the small "cool" glue guns as opposed to a "hot" glue glum. They work great for things like this.

These are cute. I did something simular last year. I used candy canes as a sled. Took different size round styrofoam balls and made snow men. Put a hat, scarf on the snowmen. They were really cute also but only last for the season as the candy canes discolored when I took them out the next year.

Jenna White said...

Love this. Very creative. This is a great gift. Thanks for sharing.

Has anyone tried them with glue dots or something other than a glue gun?

Cjaklin said...

I plan on making these with my daughter. They look real cute and as a first time crafter I'm hoping they won't be to hard to assemble.

Bonnie Peeling said...

One comment was about using rubber cement. I don't think I would do that, as it has a strong odor that the chocolate will pick up and I don't believe it is nontoxic. I would stick with (no pun intended!) low melt hot glue or glue dots. I use these to make juice box trains and robots. The only problem I have found with the hot glue is if you live in a cold area and they are exposed to a great change in temperature, which causes the items to come apart. Tacky glue would work, but it doesn't dry that quickly. Since these are also tied with ribbon, it should be fine.

Double sided tape worked great for me :)

"I think you should all make some. Come on. You know you want to!"

Funny you should say that. :) My Mum saw this on Pinterest and emailed it to me and we're going to have a go at making a few of these. It's such a lovely idea and doesn't look too complicated either.

This is a great idea for stocking stuffers or gifts for the Teachers! I will be making some shortly. Thanks for the creativity!

thanks for all of the recent comments! Since many of you are no reply bloggers, I haven't been able to email you. boohoo. I do believe I found the tiny bows at Walmart last year, in their holiday wrapping section....

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much. This is such an affordable gift for a lot of people.

Becky said...

We had a go at these this afternoon and we're so pleased with how they turned out. I thought we'd gone a bit overboard with the supplies, but most of it did get used.

I think it's safe to say that these sleighs will become another one of our Christmas traditions. :)

Antos Family Blog said...

I plan to fill boxes with these and send them to my son who is stationed overseas. He and especially his fellow Airmen love getting treats! I always send an extra box for him to share.....it's a great idea for deployed also, just change it up a bit with less chocolate - like one poster wrote, use gum, or other items. Great idea! thanks for sharing!

I just love these. Going to make them with my granddaughter (4 yrs old) and my nephew (3 yrs old). They are going to give them to their teachers and bus driver. We will use either glue dots or double sided tape. I am also going to make some for the ladies at the office. Thanks so very much for sharing the idea.

For those not wanting to use hot glue, Glue Dots(http://www.gluedots.com/glue.html)are an alternative. They are really strong. They are at Michael's and Hobby Lobby and other craft stores.
Ellyn, I think I met you a few times at Bring and Brag at Q.A. when I lived in TX. I recognized Joellen. :) Nice to see you have a blog!

Anonymous said...

I just made a half dozen of these. I ran out of glue sticks so I started taping down the small bars and it worked perfect. I plan on making more and I will just glue down the large bar onto the candy canes and use tape for the rest. I also used some Reese's Peanut butter cups as well as Kit-Kats. I added a small Santa bar on the front as well.

Unknown said...

i think i am going to do this for my son's teachers, at the moms morning out program. instead of a regular sized candy bar i am going to use a starbucks gift card, just making them smaller. i also will be using double sided tape.maybe i can make a pipe cleaner reindeer to drive it....lol.

I used a hot glue gun, but I froze the chocolate before assembling, and there was no melting! These came out so cute and were actually pretty easy to make without a helper. Thanks for the wonderful idea!

I made these for my friends. I used double stick tape instead of hot glue. I bought the candy on sale and spent $21.00 so for ten sleighs it was $2.10. Not bad for ten gifts and they were a hugh hit

I saw these on your blog yesterday and rushed out to get the supplies. My son and I made 12 of them this morning and they came out so cute. They were so quick and fun to do!!! I did half of them with the regular Kit-Kat and half with the white chocolate Kit-Kat. We also put a small chocolate Santa (perfect size for the sleigh) on the front. The only thing we used the glue gun for was the candy canes. For the rest we used a crafters adhesive roller. So easy and no mess. Thanks for the great idea and perfect instructions.

The above post is mine as well as this one. My husband took my daughter out just a bit ago to deliver these to her friends. They were a HUGE hit!! (the parents loved them as well). On the way home my husband called me and said that our daughter wants to make some more for other friends - - so they stopped off at the store and found everything they needed to make another batch. But no worries...they are easy and done in a flash. Two dozen this year.

Chanda said...

These are just adorable! Thanks for the detailed instructions! Just a quick note to let you know my sister in law made these for all of the kids this year and they were a big hit. I posted a picture of her creation on my blog, but gave a link to you for credit. Have a happy New Year!

to make these even more affordable, but still adorable, i didn't use the full-size kitkats. i used the smaller ones (2 sticks per wrapper) and glued 2 of them side by side onto a small piece of hard paper. then i did my layers of hershey miniatures, 3, then 2, then 1. turned out just as cute but ended up costing about
$1 per sled :)

I made a few of these for Christmas 2012, they were a big hit with all my family, both kids and adults. My little sister took her sleigh to a school show&tell.

I'm a bit worried about the hot glue, since I'm not very coordinated to get only a dot on there (I tend to end up with a big glob!), but I did get some of the small glue dots, so might try both and see which works best.

Just got done making 9 of these for my grandsons' classmates in preschool...eeeeasy and fast. I bought a "party size" bag of Hershey's minis, after Halloween for 1/2 price and it was enough to do 11 sleds without using any of the peanut bars since schools ban peanuts due to possible allergies. I'll definitely be making these again...there are so many possible uses. Fundraising, gifts, name place card holders, party favors, gift card holders.

I love these! Found them on Pinterest. I made 22 of them and took them to the icu nursing staff. My husband has been with them for 38 days and they are wonderful. (Glad to report he is making progress after a very scary time.) The nurses there last night loved them and I'm sure the others will also! I didn't use the ribbons and bows and I know they would have been cuter with them but I didn't have the time or energy to go searching. Also I only used of the small sized bars since they are expensive and I was making so many...still cute!

Instead of using hot glue, maybe double sided tape would work?
