Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Gold Chocolate Coins

At Blair Candy, we’re here to help you prepare for every holiday with the right sweets; and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception! The holiday may not revolve around candy as much as others, but adding St. Patty’s Day candy to your party is still sure to make everyone feel they’re in luck.

Perhaps the most popular St. Patrick’s Day candies are gold chocolate coins. Available in bulk quarters and half-dollars, these handy and festive chocolates are the perfect addition to your party or parade. Add them to a cauldron or scatter them about for some fun décor.

Celebrate National Peppermint Patty Day!

Each year, peppermint patties are celebrated on February 11th. These favorite chocolately, minty treats have been around since the mid-1800’s, when four sons from the Isle of Man formed the Kendal Mint Cake Company.

Here in the states, peppermint patties were made as early as 1900 from companies based in Idaho and Minnesota. The most known (though not the oldest) is the York Cone Company of Pennsylvania (est. 1940), the makers of York Peppermint Patties. York stood out from the competition because while other popular peppermint patties were soft, York’s were firm and crispy.

Candy Conversation Heart Crafts

We prefer to eat them first, but there are plenty of creative ways to use candy conversation hearts! You can incorporate them with pieces of home décor or create some gifts for your special someone.

Jar of Hearts: Make a centerpiece for the table by filling a clear jar with conversation hearts. You can decorate the outside of the jar with cutouts (hearts, X’s and O’s, etc), pink or red felt balls, or anything else V-Day themed.

Photo Frame: For a great gift, glue conversation hearts to a wooden frame.

Napkin Rings: The perfect addition to a Valentine’s Day breakfast. Find the tutorial here.

Wreath: All you need is ribbon, a foam wreath from a craft store and a glue gun! Find the tutorial here.
