What you’ll need


Directions

    1. Unwrap your candies and set out the decorating options on a plate.
    2. Use hot glue or toothpicks to fix the candy to a real or plastic pumpkin. Remember, the candy is non-edible afterwards if you use glue!

What you’ll need


Directions

    1. Fill each balloon with 3 to 4 pieces of candy. KISSES Milk Chocolates, TWIZZLERS Twists and JOLLY RANCHER Hard Candies work best, but any snack size bar will do. Inflate the balloon and tie off.
