Christmas Candy Advent

We love our Christmas Countdown at our house because it's made of candy. Who doesn't love Christmas candy? My mom made me this Santa hook years ago and we use it every year. Think of it as candy portion control.
This Christmas countdown is simple to make.
All you need is:
-Some kind of hook
-About 7 feet of plastic wrap (red or green plastic wrap also looks nice)
-Enough candy for everyone in your family to have one piece each day, so 75 pieces for us. Two 8 oz bags of Hershey's kisses was enough.
-Colorful ribbon cut in about 7 inch pieces
Just lay our your plastic wrap and place the candies on it, one day at a time. Separate each day with a ribbon tie.

Keep on going until you have 25 days, or in our case 29 since I don't like to wait until December to start.

Just cut below the candy each day and eat your treats. Christmas will be here before you know it.

  1. This is supper cute...I'm just afraid my kids (or their Dad) wouldn't exhibit any self control and they would eat all the candy right away...especially seeming how they can see it!! :-)
