How to Create a Valentines Day Party Candy Bar & Other Elegant Sweet Dessert Treats

Good Food

Ask any kid or adult what things they most associate with Valentine's Day. Chances are they'll probably say the same thing: hearts, chocolate candy and valentines. Really, for those celebrating on February 14th who can imagine this holiday of love without any of those iconic necessities?

If you're looking for something that combines all of the Day of Hearts most favorite things, then check out Nestle Valentine's Day sweet candy products. These include a trio of 24-piece Wonka kits that come with both valentines and candy for kids and kid-like adults to give to family and friends.

New this year is the Wonka Fun Dip Mystery Flavor Valentine Kit for little ones who love surprises which joins the other two products in this collection pairing candy and valentines in a single package: Wonka SweeTARTS Candy & Card Kit and Wonka Fun Dip Lik-m-aid Valentine Kit. The best part is these sell for under $5 a box. That makes them perfect for frugal moms on a budget who need to make a last minute scramble to the store to buy candy and valentines for your children to exchange this year at school.

In addition to these valentine candy kits, the company is offering some returning classics this season. Among them are the Nestle's 35-piece Exchange Bag, Nestle Minis, Nestle Crunch Hearts and since I'm partial to Butterfingers my personal favorite, Butterfinger Hearts.

If you're having a Valentine's Party either at school or at home this year, why not transform all these beautiful and yummy Nestle Valentine's Day sweets into a beautiful Candy Bar presentation that doubles as part of your party decorations and is a feast for the eyes and the palate?

  • Use an assortment of different size & height decorative glasses and candy dishes
  • Sort candy either by color, type or a mixture of both
  • Place in an eye-appealing arrangement with larger vessels toward back
  • Add colored paper shred, holiday floral picks & other small decorative accents
  • Don't forget to take photos of your creation, then invite guests to enjoy!
