How many pieces of candy can you fit on the kabobs?
This is really going to have to be dependent on what types of candy you find and use. I would say that depending on how strong the kabobs are, you can fit anywhere from 7-10 pieces of candy on each and every kabob.
What are some good candy choices for candy kabobs?
There are so many great candy choices out there to choose from. We’re in a big fan of anything sour and gummy so you really can’t go wrong with those in our house.
We also like to use marshmallows or fluffy fun food items like that. Basically, anything that is substantial that can stay on the kabob is free game!
Could you alter these candy kabobs in any way?
You can! This is part of the reason why I really love this fun candy treat. You can use strawberries, grapes, or any other type of fruit as well.
If you’re looking for a fun way to present chocolate-covered strawberries for Valentine’s Day, this is a pretty cool idea to do!
Who would enjoy these simple candy kabobs?
Anyone! Talk about the perfect Valentine’s Day gift that you can give to anyone! Make up some candy kabobs and drop them off at houses or consider this for a fun party idea for school parties.
You can easily bring all the candy items needed to class and let everyone make up their own delicious kabobs.
Where is the best place to find candy for this Valentine’s Day treat?
We’ve had really good luck at candy stores or places like that. Otherwise, I do know that online outlets have some fun candy options as well.
Check with your local supermarkets too because there is typically a really good candy selection too.
