Shimmering Party Favors

Shimmering Party Favors

These cuties will be party favors at my daughter’s 8th birthday party. 

  • Box of 24 sugar sticks from Trader Joe’s
  • 4 ounces of white baking chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • 2 packages of Wilton pretzel stick bags
  • Pretty sprinkles purchased at the restaurant supply store
  • Blank address labels

Melt chocolate and shortening in the microwave…30 seconds then stir & heat another 30 seconds.  Dip sticks in mixture.  Sprinkle on waxed paper.  Allow to dry about an hour.  Place in pretzel bags, adorn with various colored ribbons & place a “Thank You For Helping Me Celebrate” label.

These are a nice option as a hostess gift in a little vase or as a sidepiece to enhance your holiday buffet table.  To use in a vase, keep the sticks in their plastic wrapper part way then place in the green florist foam. Last, add your basket shreds and ribbon.
