Fun Candy Sleds/Sleighs

I saw this amazing idea and knew that the kiddos and I had to do it - candy sleighs (or sleds as some people call them).  I first saw the idea over here.  I changed it up slightly but it is the exact same concept.  Hope you enjoy these as I have.

First step is to gather the supplies.

We used holiday packaged Kit Kats, Hershey's miniatures (Mr. Goodbar, Krackle, Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate, peppermint candy canes, gold and silver ribbon, an assortment of miniature bows, Boogie Wipes and scrapbooking tape to secure it all together.

Next we secured a Kit Kat to two candy canes and added a Boogie Wipe to help with the clean up after enjoyment!

Then we began our candy pyramid.  Originally we were going to use 4, then 3 on top, then 2 on top and 1 but we thought that the 3, 2, 1 arrangement looked great and allowed us to make more sleighs!

Add ribbon on both sides and a bow on top and voila!

What do you think?  I love them :).
