Holiday treats for playgroup

I made these very cute candy cane sleigh treats for my daughter’s playgroup.  I found the recipe in a cute little cook book from LTD Commodities called “A Mom’s Recipe Book Class Treats, Bake Sales and Birthday Parties.  I’ll have to update this post with the response I get from the other parents but I think they will be a hit.  They are very easy to make.  See the recipe below – I modified it a bit for packaging ease.

Makes approx. 19 depending on quantity of snickers bars.

1 bag of fun size snickers (approx 19)

38 mini candy canes (double the number of snickers bars)

38 gummy bears

1/2 cup Chocolate chips, melted

red licorice if wanted (skinny rope kind)

Here you go: unwrap all the candy you need to use.  Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave at 30 second intervals until melted, mix between intervals.  It took my microwave 3 – 30 second intervals to completely melt.  Use a knife to spread melted chocolate to the sides of the candy canes.  Attach the candy canes to the snickers bars, one each side.  Note: use a baking pan or wax paper to catch the drips.  Apply melted chocolate to the bottoms of the gummy bears and attach to the top of the snickers bars.  If wanted, attach licorice strips to the sleigh for rope handlebars.  I stuck them in the refridgerator to harden the chocolate faster. 

Have fun!
