Holiday Candy

Add Something Sweeter to Your Holiday Baking Recipes – Part 2

The holidays are here and there are still plenty of ways you can use holiday candy for baking! Here are a couple more ways you can use Christmas candy in bulk for your holiday treats:

Christmas Desserts with candy in bulk | BlairCandy.com

Cakes: Another option for adding an extra sweet kick to your holiday desserts is including chopped candies to top off a cake recipe. Any layered cake or batch of cupcakes with candy as decoration will look polished, professional, and holiday party-ready! Chocolate or peanut butter-flavored cakes will pair well with Snickers or Kit Kat chopped candy. Simply sprinkle these chopped candies in the layers of a cake or onto the icing. Presto! You now have a picture-perfect dessert.

Magic Bars: Finally, we saved the best for last. Magic bars are those desserts that hold so many sweet flavors, starting with a layer of chocolate on the bottom or a graham cracker crust, followed by a mix of chocolate chips, marshmallow, coconut, nuts, and other candy toppings. We love to toss in favorites like chocolate covered raisins or Reese’s Pieces!

Reindeer Food: This can be called a variety of names, Reindeer Food, Reindeer Bait, Reindeer Chow, Puppy Chow…regardless, this treat is absolutely delicious. Mix cereal with sugar, chocolate, sprinkles, and assorted candy for a sweet snack. This also makes a great gift when added to a decorative jar.

Stock Up & Save on Holiday Candy Favorites

Christmas Candy in Bulk | BlairCandy.comThe holidays are quickly approaching! There are decorations to be hung, meals to be prepared, and stores look as though they are bursting at the seams with shoppers. We all want to save as much time as possible this time of year and spend it with our loved ones.

Candy is essential to celebrating the holiday season, but who has the time to venture into the traffic in search of the perfect Christmas candy? We would all rather put another log on the fireplace and pour a glass of cold eggnog (or a hot cocoa!) than go candy hunting.

Instead, purchase your candy online, and we’ll ship it directly to you! We offer a wide selection of Christmas candy in bulk that will satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth on your “nice” list.

Old Fashioned Hard Christmas Candy & Snacks Make the Season Bright!

Old Fashioned Hard Christmas Candy | BlairCandy.com

There is a certain fondness we have for vintage items at the holidays. Tartan plaid dresses, vinyl records of holiday hits, red ribbons, heirloom Christmas dinner plates, and of course, nostalgic candies that let us walk back down memory lane. You can’t beat the taste of old-fashioned Christmas candy. And the test of time lets it show: we still see bags and boxes of candy from our childhood on store shelves.

Maybe you remember running to the corner store with your parents or friends in tow. On the way, you might have passed a toy store with the latest train model in the window only to press your nose to the glass for a second before buying a handful (or two!) of penny candy. Or maybe you remember sitting beneath the Christmas tree with your brothers and sisters, surrounded by wrapping paper as you unwrapped the old fashioned hard Christmas candy you found in your stockings. You felt the magic of the season – and then you celebrated it with a little something sweet. Old fashioned hard Christmas candy or snacks can take you back in time and make those memories feel even sweeter.

Add Something Sweeter to Your Holiday Baking Recipes – Part 1

It’s not the holidays without food! And while our to-do lists, shopping lists, and meal preparation lists may be long this time of year, it’s important to not forget or skimp on the favorite part of the meal: dessert. Sometimes a cookie or piece of cake could use a little extra “wow” factor and that’s where we come in! Here are some of our favorite ways to use candy in cooking and baking this holiday season.

M&M’s in Bulk for Holiday Recipes | BlairCandy.com

Brownies: Brownie batter is a great opportunity to mix in some sweet treats, like M&M’s! These candies are colorful, crunchy (and delightfully melty if you bite into your brownie soon after it comes out of the oven!). We recommend purchasing M&M’s in bulk, since who knows how many batches of sweets you may need to make? You can purchase M&M’s in bulk and other candies mentioned here from the unwrapped candy section on our website.

Thumbprint Cookies: Who can forget about thumbprint cookies? These cookies are usually a sugar or peanut-butter dough and have a craved-after candy in the middle. You could go with the traditional Hershey’s Kiss as the topping, or you could switch up the recipe with chocolate covered peanuts or pretzels.

Trail Mix: Trail mix is a quick snack option for holiday shopping, cocktail parties, or other events on your Christmas calendar. Combine salty snacks like peanuts and pretzels with Whopper pieces. These are fun treats for family members of all ages. Plus, it can be an easy addition to any coffee or dining room table as a centerpiece!

We love variety, and while traditional dessert recipes are go-to’s for the holiday season, spice it up this year — mix in some whole or chopped candies to your dessert recipes. Shop now at BlairCandy.com and stay tuned for part 2!

Retro Christmas Candy to Share this Season

Retro Christmas Candy | BlairCandy.com

Think back to the holiday season when you were a child. Did you have a favorite holiday candy? Of course, you did! Chances are, we have it on BlairCandy.com for you to enjoy all over again. This time, while you’re enjoying your favorite retro Christmas candy, invite your family and friends to enjoy it along with you. Here are three retro Christmas candies that we think everyone will enjoy:

Plantation Old Fashioned Clear Candy is a subtle sugar candy that has delighted many for decades. Each candy is shaped into a classic Christmas toy and comes in a variety of beautiful colors. The only downside is that the candy is very delicate, so they do break easily. Even if they are broken, they are still delicious to eat.

Washburn Cut Rock Hard Candy is just as delicious to eat as it is neat to look at. Each candy has designs and vibrant colors that make it great for gifting and decorating. This bag has 9oz of this classic candy, but you still want to buy two bags; this candy will go quickly!

Following the trend of unique, retro Christmas candy, this box of Ribbon Candy will amaze those new to nostalgic candy. This treat isn’t seen as often, but it will be a clear favorite among those who try it. Each box has assorted colors and flavors, so it probably wouldn’t hurt to buy a few boxes to make sure you get to try all of the flavors. Also, these make a great Christmas gift for those who love candy.

Planning a Christmas Candy Buffet

Christmas Candy in Bulk for Candy Buffets | BlairCandy.com

Candy buffets are a great way to entertain guests at a holiday party. You can make them as large or small as you’d like, they’re easy to set up, and they make a great party favor station for your guests. But where do you start when planning out a buffet? We recommend you read below before buying your Christmas candy in bulk:

First, how many guests will you have? Be sure to plan to buy enough candy for at least a pound of candy a piece. This doesn’t include any novelty treats or baked goods. For those, you should plan on at least one treat per guest.

Next, start designing a table. You should choose a variety of glass bowls, apothecary jars, and cake stands to display your treats. The more variety you choose, the more appealing your table will look. Also, choose a color theme to base your candy and decorations off of.

Finally, assemble your table. Add labels to every jar and plate to show your guests what they’re about to enjoy. Wait to place baked goods until about 10-15 minutes before guests arrive, to ensure they stay fresh. You can also place serving utensils in the bowls and jars at that time. Additionally, be sure you have goodie bags so your guests have an easy takeaway favor for later.

This article from Quinceanera.com breaks down everything you need to plan your table. When you’re ready to get your Christmas candy in bulk, visit us at BlairCandy.com. We have all of the treats you need, from retro to new favorites to stock your candy buffet.
