Festive Christmas Candies

We would like to thank Nancy, a friend of the elves, for sharing this idea with us! This craft is a great way to use up any scraps of paper or pieces too small to wrap a gift. Simply cover chocolates in wrapping paper to make wintery Christmas candies, then arrange several of these candies in a Christmas tin or on a small plate for a candy wreath.

Supplies & Tools:

  • Wrapping paper and/or scrapbook paper
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Embellishments: gems, pearls, stickers, etc.
  • Snowflake paper punch
  • Chocolate candies, such as Hershey's Miniatures


  1. Measure and cut strips of paper so they are wide enough to cover the chocolate bars.Our are 1.5" x 2.875".
  2. Wrap a paper strip around a chocolate bar and tape in place.
  3. Set chocolate bar on work surface, right side up.
  4. Add embellishments—snowflakes, little rhinestone gems, stickers, whatever you like!
  5. Arrange candies in a dish or on plate. Use a plastic plate and give away as a gift.
