What You Need To Make Frozen Inspired Candy Kabobs
1. Signature Candy in Frozen Inspired Colors
You can either choose different hues of blue/teal as I did or go for the coronation colours of teal and purple.
Each kabob needs 7-10 pieces of candy on it in different shapes and sizes.
Find a few pieces of special candy to really up the wow factor then fill the rest in with regular stuff.
I was lucky enough to find some snowflake gummies and snowman-shaped marshmallows that fit my theme perfectly and I found similar candy on Amazon:
Find the Gummy Snowflakes here.
2. Filler Candy
Once you have a few really special pieces, you can fill the rest of the skewer with regular candy. Regular Marshmallows are great as they take up a lot of space on the skewer and look like snowballs.
You can use any candy in your theme colours and translucent candy looks great too.
I originally planned to use the white candy sticks but you really need the pointy end of the skewers to make it easier to ensemble the kabob.
These bags will fit your kabobs nicely and give you just enough room for larger candies like marshmallows.
Tips For Making Perfect Frozen Inspired Candy Kabobs
- Plan ahead. In winter you will be able to find more options for snow themed candy shapes so if you can buy in advance, it will save a lot of hassle.
- Have a glass of water on hand and dip each skewer in before sliding on the candy. This helps the candies from sticking to the wood when they’re sliding on. I had to repeat the dipping a few times for each skewer.
- Marshmallows tend to slip easily down the skewer so make sure they are held in place on the stick by a firmer candy.
- Alternate different shades of blue or purple to create an interesting kabob.
- Play around with the direction (sideways or upright) of the candy to create different looks. This will save you buying so many types of candy.
- Choose thick candy and gummies. Thin ones will rip when you try and put the skewer through them.
- Pick a pretty ribbon to tie the pretzel bags at the bottom.
