The Partiologist: Gold Cinnamon Candy & More!

Gold Cinnamon Candy & More!

What's sparkly and gold and not made with a mold?  Yes, today I'm showing you several easy sparkly Christmas ideas...no mold needed!  Every year I make cinnamon candy at Christmas and because I was having a golden themed Christmas party, I decided to make gold cinnamon candy!

Gold Cinnamon Candy!

 
Would you believe that the easiest candy I made were my favorites? 

With the added edible stars, glitter and sugar crystals the candy fit right in with my party! 

And you'll love seeing how easy it was to make!
 
 
As soon as I poured the candy in my pan, I sprinkled edible gold glitter, gold stars and gold sugar sprinkles.  Cinnamon Candy Recipe Below~
 
Another way to dress up the Christmas candy buffet is with Sixlets...It's not a party unless you have Sixlets!
 
 
Package in any sweet bag and they're ready to give.  Or leave them in a candy jar and have your guests scoop some out for themselves!
 
Wanting to keep it simple, I dipped Oreo's in chocolate and topped with a snowflake I cut out of Duff Fondant and added a gold dragee to the middle.
 
 
 How about sparkly and gold AND made with a mold?
 
 Starry Nite Brownie Bites!
 
 
And yes, I hand painted the trees and added the gold stars.  Here's where the mold came in...
 
 
I had all the stars placed perfectly on the chocolate and when I moved them to the brownie bite, I messed them up.  The brownie bites were surrounded by Homemade Caramel Crunch boxed in gold and wrapped with starry cellophane and gold wire pearls!

  2. Everything is so sparkly and pretty. Adding gold stars and sugar to the hard candy is such a wonderfully simply idea and the finished candy is really beautiful. You always display your sweets in such a fun way and these displays are so elegant. I'm sure your party guests were wowed. I know I am.
