Chocolate Foil Coins – Candy Coins

Planning a Super Mario-themed Party with Chocolate Foil Coins and Other Fun Items

Planning a game-themed birthday party is a surefire way of having a unique and memorable celebration for your child. Make the party even more unforgettable by using a classic video game character that everyone knows and loves, Super Mario! With some imagination, art supplies, and a bunch of chocolate foil coins, you can get more than a 1-Up for your creativity skills.

There are lots of creative things that you can do to transform any room into the Mushroom Kingdom! Even better, these don’t have to cost too much. Some things you can consider include creating invitations shaped like Fire Flowers, Starmen, and Super Mushrooms; or getting a cake with Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi standing on top.

Other examples for fun Mario-themed decorations include making beanstalks from green crepe paper, hanging computer-printed power-ups on the ceiling, and filling homemade coin block centerpieces with chocolate foil coins.

Daughters can have a Super Mario-themed party too! Just swap Luigi or Mario with Princess Peach or Birdo! In addition, preparing a playlist with chiptune songs for the party will add more ‘oomph’ to the fun, video game world you are planning to recreate.

By doing this, you can confidently throw a party that will stand out and be talked about for weeks to come!

Cherry Cordial M&Ms – Christmas Candy

Holiday Dessert Ideas: Cherry Cordial M&Ms in a Christmas Trifle

Christmas trifles are some of the most delectable holiday desserts any household can serve this season. Made with thick custard, fruit, sponge cake, and whipped cream, it’s hard to imagine anyone saying no to a plate of this treat. The best part about this dessert is that it can be served with any fruit imaginable! What’s more, you can even use candy like cherry cordial M&Ms!

When making trifles, most recipes have a layering pattern that starts with cake, fruit, and custard or a cream mixture. This is repeated until the container is full, and then topped off with a thin layer of sweetened whipped cream.

You can add variety to the layers as long as the same or complementing fruits are used. For instance, after the first layer of cherries, cherry cordial M&Ms can be used in lieu of fruits for the next layer. This will give the dessert an added crunch and the lavish taste of milk chocolate.

If you want to add a little more “oomph” to the final product, use chocolate pudding instead of custard in between layers to create a cordial cherry-flavored trifle! With a little imagination and kitchen creativity, you can create unique Christmas desserts that will definitely impress!

Mini Candy Canes – Christmas Candy

Holiday Beverages Taste Yummier with Mini Candy Canes

Aside from being yummy Christmas tree decorations and stocking fillers, mini candy canes also add a special taste to everyone’s favorite holiday beverages. Whether in eggnog, hot chocolate, or coffee, adding these lip-smacking candies can turn these rich, creamy drinks into instant gourmet beverages. Peppermint candy canes provide the perfect tongue-tingling balance between hot and cold on people’s taste buds.

When preparing hot drinks using these Christmas confections, hosts can pick between the two serving techniques: adding crushed or whole candy canes. Most of the time, it’s best to use both types to get the delicious minty kick infused in the drinks.

Simply crush a few candy canes finely and mix the powder in the drink. Next, hang a whole candy cane on the cup’s rim as a nice little garnish. Whipped cream can also be added on top of the beverage for a creamy, gourmet twist.

These minty flavor-enhancers aren’t just limited to warm drinks. With the right ingredients, they can also be easily added to create holiday versions of the martini and margarita. This way, even adults can enjoy the peppermint taste of these sweet holiday treats in their favorite cocktails.

Perfect for any Christmas beverage, mini candy canes are excellent holiday treats to stock up on this season!

Holiday Mini Candy – Assorted Candy

Entertain Guests any Time with Holiday Mini Candy

The holiday season also means that it’s party season from Thanksgiving all the way to the start of the next year. It’s also the season for surprise visitors or spontaneous family reunions. When guests show up all of a sudden at your doorstep, it’s best to be prepared with holiday mini candy to serve.

To keep things festive, there are many creative ways you can present these candies to your guests. Instead of going with a simple glass or plastic bowl to place on your coffee table, why not decorate one with cheerful Christmas décor to go with the theme of the candy inside? In fact, you can even create your own bowl made of extra candy canes for something completely different.

The beauty of having assorted holiday mini candy to share with guests when they come over is that they can simply pick out what they like best from the whole bowl. To keep things interesting, don’t just go with one variety of candy. An assortment of different types of holiday candy is sure to keep your guests happy—it might even serve as a great icebreaker!
