This is probably the easiest Recipe of the Week that I’ve ever posted. I know I’ve said it before, but seriously, this is soooo easy it barely constitutes a “recipe.” Some would even call this more of an “edible craft” than a full blown recipe, but I don’t care. It’s so darn cute. So cute! And you know where you can get Ghost Peeps and candy pumpkins and Oreos? Right.

We saw this amazing styled photo shoot on ThePerfectPalette.com that we knew would be great for our Event of the Week series. This shoot is styled in gorgeous fall colors of red, white and gold (also a nice winter wedding color combo) and the location of this shoot is simply stunning. Look at that wall! I want to dress up in Kiera Knightly-style flowing, etherial white lace gowns and pretend.

Whoops. Forgot to hit “Publish” yesterday. Sorry Candy-Fans, your Events A to Z is a day late but not forgotten! This X theme is a no-brainer, don’t you think? Next go-around with this A-to-Z events list the X will be a little more difficult, but for  now we’re taking the easy road and writing about a party theme that is already incredibly popular – X-Men!

October is national Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which means we’re all seeing lots and lots of pink ribbons, pink uniforms, pink shoes and, here at Sweet City Candy, tons of pink candy! There are so many fundraisers this month that help raise money for research and educational programs.

I love finding new crafts and fun things to make for the kiddies, and TheGunnySack.com is one of the BEST places to go online for simple, fun and creative things to make. Back around Easter time, I posted a balloon craft that I saw on TheGunnySack that I actually re-created for my son’s birthday party as a fun game to play and it was so much fun! None of the.

Recipe of the Week: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Chocolate Cranberry Cookies!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are my absolute favorite kind of cookie. I love the chewiness of the oatmeal mixed with the chocolate chips. Sometimes I add chopped walnuts or other nuts to add a crunchy element, but now that I’ve seen this recipe from Chelsea’s Messy Apron I think from now on I’ll be including chocolate covered cranberries in my cookies, too! And this recipe looks better than the one.

We’ve featured several “Tiffany” themed events on our blog over the years..

Something about sweets that are too sweet leave me a bit unsatisfied, but if there’s a sprinkling of sea salt, or a salty nut in it, I’m down for it.

Yes, we know this theme is not for everyone. In fact, there are probably very few people in the world who could pull off something as extreme (and awesome!) as a Beetlejuice themed wedding.

Not everyone wants to wear white to their.

Hello Friends, Boy, we had this post all ready to go yesterday and a big thunderstorm came and blew out our internet service before we could hit “Publish.” Seems how most of you were away from your desks and computers and enjoying the beach or a bar-b-que during this long holiday weekend, I suppose it’s all right to be a day late with our Event of the Week.

What is it about Hello Kitty that we all love so much? I think partly it’s the simple design of Hello Kitty itself – round white head, black circle eyes, whiskers, bow. It’s low fuss but adorable and easy to look at. It’s no wonder that Hello Kitty is such a popular party theme for the under 8 kids circuit.

With the NFL draft last night, I think football is on our brains. Even though football season doesn’t start for a few more months, we’re all pretty excited right? Johnny Football looked humbled last night for the first time in his life. Does Cleveland have a lot more fans suddenly? So, now is the time to talk about a Football party. Why? Because it’s the F week in our list..

I am pretty sure this is my favorite party theme of all time. And after ogling these party pics all weekend long, I’m miffed why we don’t see Stock the Bar parties more often.

Welcome back, readers and friends! It’s time for another A to Z post. Today’s theme – E for Elephants – sounds narrow, but is actually such a broad theme that you can do so much with it.

Not every little girl looks like Cinderella (nor should they) and Dora is a positive image for kids of all ethnic backgrounds to have a bold cartoon character who is known for being something other than blonde and fashionable. Sorry.

Don’t they look perfect for a sweet Easter dessert, or for a baby shower or bridal shower? To get.

Some people think this is sacrilege – how could you use Peeps for decor and not for eating!?!? But I happen to think it’s great because (to my taste buds) Peeps make better decorations than treats.

We’re getting close to the end of this Candy A to Z countdown, and these letters at the end of the alphabet are making things kind of tough. I almost skipped “U” all together. But today’s letter is Y, and that gives me a unique opportunity to talk about not just one candy, but a brand of candy called Yum Junkie, and why I love this brand so much. Yum.

You guys, I love a nautical, beachy, under-the-sea themed party. This theme is hands-down one of the absolute greatest (and most popular) for kids birthday parties and baby showers because they’re gorgeous, simple and just so much fun. Today’s Event of the Week takes this theme to a new level by heavily focusing on cute, adorable whales are the centerpiece of the decor and theme. This party is from an.

http://www.sweetcitycandy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/airheads_belts.jpgCandy A to Z: X is for Airheads Xtremes Sour Belts!

Today’s Candy A to Z is the letter X – so that can only means we’re featuring an Xtreme candy like Airheads Xtremes Sour Belts! These have gotten super popular for candy buffets lately. The rainbow colors make it a perfect match for so many themes.  Plus, kids (and adults) LOVE the fruity flavors that pack a big sour punch. These are also great because they’re inexpensive and you get.

There aren’t many weeks until Easter, so we’re going to spend some of these days sharing with you easy DIY crafts for Easter gifts that include sweet treats. Because, Easter isn’t Easter without some candy. A few weeks ago we told you about the Easter Egg Piñata Balloon idea from TheGunnySack.com, which is one of the best candy gift ideas that I’ve ever seen. This week, we’re going a bit.

Cadbury Mini Egg Blondies – Recipe of the Week!

http://www.sweetcitycandy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/dreamstime_1631806.jpgCadbury Mini Egg Blondies – Recipe of the Week!

Easter is coming up so soon, which that means we’re getting our annual fill of Peeps, Jelly Beans, Cream Eggs and bunnies! My personal favorite are the Cadbury Mini Eggs. I think the creamy chocolate and hard candy shell is just perfection. And I think the addition of some Cadbury Mini Eggs into Blondies is also perfection. Chef in Training has an amazing recipe for these Blondie Bars that are.

Who else has a little boy obsessed with Angry Birds? My son is so obsessed he has Angry Birds underwear and I have to remind him not to pull his pants down to show everyone which bird is on his cool undies each day. I’m pretty certain that when his birthday comes around this summer, the party that we have will be an Angry Birds theme, so I’m spending a.

http://www.sweetcitycandy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Necco-Wafers-1024x1004.jpgCandy A to Z: W is for (Necco) Wafers!

Do certain candies just bring you right back to a time and place of your childhood? For whatever reason, the only time growing up that I would ever get Necco Wafers was during our annual summer trip to my grandparent’s house. They lived in a teeny-weeny farm town in the middle of nowhere and would give my sister and I $1 to share and off we went to the “dime.

Ya’ll know me, I’m a sucker for S’Mores. So when I saw these cupcakes on Bakerella.com it was a delight to my eyes. Bakeralla is one of my absolute favorite sites. Her recipes and photography are just unbelievably mouthwatering and talented. See what I’m talking about? I think these days when people are going to culinary school, there must be Photography 101 and 102 requirements, because food bloggers these days.

St. Patrick’s Day is soon, friends. Are you ready? You’ve got less than 2 weeks to get it together and create a great St. Paddy’s Day party. Lucky for you, we’re here to help out. I really like St. Patricks Day because 1) I am (one quarter) Irish, and it is the only one of my ancestral countries of origin that gets it’s own little celebration in the “New World.”.

Today’s candy might be a new one for many of you. Lots of the candy on our A to Z list are quite common, everyday favorites, but today’s candy is a bit of a throw-back. C. Howard’s Violet Mint Squares are truly a one-of-a-kind candy. They’re little mint squares with a distinctive flowery violet flavor and have been around since the 1930s. It appears as though the packaging has been.

You guys, look at this awesome idea from TheGunnySack.com! You get jumbo balloons, put candy in them, blow them up, decorate and place in the Easter basket! I’m freaking out over the combined genius and cuteness of these things! You know what else I absolutely love about these? Wouldn’t they be awesome for a creative birthday party goody bag? Think about how you can customize the names on each balloon.

This week we’re going to tell you about another color palette for Mardi Gras – this one leans a bit more towards a New Orleans theme. You’ll often find many Mardi.

Do you want to see one of the sweetest party themes of the year? It’s this whimsical, airy, fanciful Cotton Candy Themed Party from our friends at Party Pants in Rhode Island! These photos (taken by Michael J Larson Photography, also in Rhode Island) have such a graceful, light touch to them, its like floating through a pink-shaded dream. I can almost smell the deliciously sweet cotton candy flavor just.

Candy A to Z: U is for sUper Blow Pops!

Candy A to Z: U is for sUper Blow Pops!

I really had a hard time coming up with a “U” candy for this A to Z candy countdown. I almost gave up and was going to skip the letter all together, but I think my creative work-around will do the trick. Who doesn’t love Charms Blow-Pops, anyway? And who wouldn’t love one of their SUPER Blow-Pops? You know, the ones that are super-sized to be about twice the size.

Get ready people, Mardi Gras (or Karenval / Carnival, depending on what part of the world you’re in) is coming up quickly.  Are you having a party? Did you know that candy is a HUGE part of this celebration? They don’t just throw beads from those floats, you know. I was at a Karenval parade in Cologne, Germany a few years ago and nearly got decapitated by a 1/2 pound.

Happy Monday everyone!  We’re so excited to talk about a Minnie Mouse birthday party (or baby shower) today. Minnie Mouse is such a classic party theme for little girls and can be among the most fun and simple to put together.  Party colors include Red, Black & White, with a little pink thrown in for good measure.

I’ve been looking forward to the “T” day of our Candy A to Z countdown so I can talk about how much I love Twix. Not only are they a perfect balance of chocolate, cookie and caramel but you get TWO Twix per package. How can you not love something when it feels like you’re getting double what you paid for? Not only are they good on their own, but.

Are you kidding me? Look at this masterpiece!   I think calling this a “salad” is bit of a stretch, because this Snickers Caramel Apple Salad is clearly a decadent dessert. With Snickers Bars, Caramel Sauce, Vanilla Pudding, Cool Whip, this is clearly a crowd pleaser. This recipe comes from an excellent website – Chef In Training – and everyone should bookmark it immediately.  Some seriously great recipes here. Anyone.

Frozen has completely taken over these days.  And I’m not taking about the frozen tundra polar vortex type of “frozen” either. I’m talking about the awesome Disney movie about Anna and Kristoff who set off on a journey to find Anna’s sister, Elsa, who has trapped the kingdom in an endless winter. Although the whole “trapped in an endless winter” thing sounds pretty familiar, doesn’t it? I think its encouraging.

I know that Biscoff spread isn’t a new thing, but it’s kind of a new thing to me. I don’t have much experience with this delicious, butter cookie flavored spreadable substance but it seems to be all the rage on the plethora of baking and dessert sites that I troll endlessly day after day. I know Biscoff mainly because it seems to be the cookie-of-choice for airlines when passing out.

You know what makes me happy? Knowing that there are little girls growing up today still loving The Little Mermaid. My sister and I watched this movie over and over and over again as kids, memorizing all the songs, knowing all the lines, singing along to movie. I was recently on a cross-Atlantic flight with my kids (not recommend – what was I thinking flying across the ocean with a.

http://www.sweetcitycandy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/squiggly-blue-126252-im.jpgCandy A to Z: Q is for (S)Quiggly Lollipops!

We’re kind of cheating this week with our “Q” candy. You see, there really aren’t any candies that start with Q, but Squiggly Lollipops come close enough. These Lollipops are the BEST accessory to a candy buffet. Here’s why: They come in 6 different colors: Blue, Pink, Orange, Purple, Green and Yellow – so at least one of these will almost assuredly fit your color scheme. They come in 48.

It’s Candy A to Z day again and today is P, which means P is for Peppermint Pattie!  What else would it be? York Peppermint Patties first came about in York, Pennsylvania in the 1940s. They are confection perfection – a delicious, creamy peppermint candy covered in dark chocolate and extremely satisfying after a meal or for a mid-afternoon sugar-kick. York Peppermint Patties are not the only kind of peppermint.

Caramel Cream Cheese Bars from @BakeOrBreak – Recipe of the Week!

These amazing dessert bars are almost unbearably delicious. They have two of my absolutely favorite things in them – cream cheese and caramel. This is how much I love cream cheese: I eat it plain.  Not like, plain cream cheese on something. I eat JUST the cream cheese.  I can’t help myself. I’ll stand in front of the fridge staring off into space with a tea spoon in my hand.

Oh Henry! bars have peanuts, caramel and fudge all in a yummy chocolate covered candy bar that was first introduced by the Williamson Candy Company of Chicago in 1920.  The name is supposedly after.

We haven’t posted about fun baby shower games in a while, so I thought the first of the year was a good time to revive the topic. First, I came across this excellent baby shower “Baby Book Quiz” game on Love the Day.  Love the Day also put together a really amazing FREE printable package for an orange and blue (adorable!) baby shower.

I love people who can laugh at themselves and take an occasion that gives so many of us the heebie-jeebies (turning 40!) and take it head on with grace and humor.  That is why I love this fun, witting “Mid-Life Crisis” casino style 40th birthday party from Debbie at Wants and Wishes.

That’s right, it’s Candy A to Z day again! And today’s letter is N – which means it must be for Nerds. Nerds have been one of my favorite candies since early childhood.  The sweet and sour little candy bits are so satisfying as a snack, or sweet afternoon treat, or Movie Theater snack, or as an ingredient in lots and lots of recipes. To celebrate N is for Nerds.

Jelly Bean Wine Bar – Event (Idea) of the Week!

Jelly Bean Wine Bar – Event (Idea) of the Week!

So I was listening to talk radio while riding in the car with my Dad (isn’t it a law that all Dads over the age of 50 listen exclusively to talk radio?) and this story came on about something really cool that Wine X Magazine put together. The wine experts at Wine X Magazine have come up with a really cool concept – finding jelly beans that match or complement.

Candy A to Z: M is for M&Ms (Duh?!)

What else would M be for, am I right? I mean, sure there are other candies that begin with the letter M, but come on. Nothing compares. Have you ever seen a child have and M&M for the first time? I remember when my son, who is now 4, had his first M&M about 1.5 years ago (don’t hate, I gave my kids chocolate pretty early) and ever since he’s.

I am a huge fan of “everything but the kitchen sink” type recipes. They allow you to do a pantry cleanse and get rid of all those half and quarter bags of nuts, pretzels, chips and candy that you’re afraid you’re just going to binge eat on a lonely Friday night (sob!) but you really REALLY want to use them in a yummy treat. We have the answer for you!.

Who else has a little boy (or boys) running around the house pretending to be dinosaurs? My kids LOVE dinosaurs and are basically obsessed with them. My 4 year old saw me working on this post and was mesmerized. Is that a dino party, Mommy? Can we do that here? Can I have a dino party? Please? Please? Pleeeeeeeeease!?!” That’s why this Dino party is our Event of the Week.

It’s Friday – remember what day that is? It’s Candy A to Z day! We are on J, and today J is for Jawbreakers! Remember that movie from the late 90s with Rose McGowan and the Noxzema Girl? It was a dark comedy with basically the same plot at Heathers, only with tight pants and midriff shirts? I personally liked the pleated skirts and shoulder pads of Heathers fashion better,.

Candy A to Z: K is for Kit Kat!

Candy A to Z: K is for Kit Kat!

Kit Kats have been around for ages (1911, to be exact), and we’ve all enjoyed many a Kit Kat after Halloween, in school lunches, on road trips, in your Christmas stocking, at birthday parties, and in solitude as a reward for getting through a tough day. I can’t think of another candy that is more deserving to represent the letter K in our A to Z list than a Kit.

Candy A to Z: I is for Ice Cubes Chocolates

Candy A to Z: I is for Ice Cubes Chocolates

Here’s a blast from the past – who remembers Ice Cubes? These yummy little treats are made by Alberts and come in a box with 100 pieces of candy in them (at least, when you buy them from us, that is how they come). Ice Cubes have been around since the 1930s and are special because they are made with partially hydrogenated coconut oil, which melts quite a bit faster.

Blast From the Past: Vintage Life Savers Ads!

Blast From the Past: Vintage Life Savers Ads!

Some of these Life Savers vintage ads are pretty much pieces of art these days, don’t you think?  I would probably put these in nice frames and hang these on the walls of my kitchen. What do you think? Do you remember these? This one is from the 1940s and is about “chasing the Gremlins” away. Here is a little history of what kind of Gremlins this ad is referring.

ROTW: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Caramel Apples!

ROTW: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Caramel Apples!

I believe I’ve said this before – the longer the title of the recipe, the better it is.  That is why I was so drawn to this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Caramel Apple recipe from Sprinkle Bakes.

Candy A to Z: F is for Fun Dip!

Candy A to Z: F is for Fun Dip!

Here’s a throwback to the olden days – Fun Dip! I remember every summer going to my grandparent’s house and walking down to the local “dime store” and buying Lik-m-Aid Fun Dip with my sister and cousins and eating them on the play ground. I basically only got this candy at my grandparent’s house because there was pretty much no way my mom was going to let me eat a.

Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin Party!

Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin Party!

It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown! is one of the the greatest all-time autumn / Halloween feel-good movies ever.  First of all, who doesn’t love Charlie Brown?  Second of all, it’s great to have a Halloween themed movie for kids that’s not terrifyingly scary or gruesome like all the others. I, for one, am NOT a fan of the horror movie genre.  I get nightmares super easily so anything even.

Yes, Eggnog Cordials Are a “Thing.” A Thing You Must Try.

Every year when my husband gets out his Cousin Eddie outfit and Moose-Mug, I know what’s on his mind – Eggnog! It’s that wonderful time of the year when we all mix together cream, sugar and raw eggs and add enough booze to forget that we’re actually drinking raw eggs. But you know what – there’s another way to enjoy eggnog without the queasy raw egg part. There is a.

#Halloween Party For “Groan-Ups”

Like what I did up there in the title? “Groan-Ups” like to have Halloween parties too, and because we’re all adults the parties can be much scarier and, well, more grown-up than parties for kiddos.  So for this week’s Event of the Week, we’re featuring some really great event photos and ideas for a spooky, spectacular adult Halloween Party.

I absolutely love a party with goody bags, whether it’s for little kids or adults, it is so sweet to depart from a fun event with a nice little memento from the party.  That’s why I loved the Geometric Shaped Boxes from Oh Happy Day!

I absolutely adore this Wheels on the Bus party from Angie Kay of Marigold Events.  With little boys of my own, I can tell that this party was a major hit – just look at the table with the “road” runner and cars to play with.  And everyone knows the famous “The Wheels on the Bus Go Round-and-Round” song -so Angie ingeniously used food and labels to go with the.

Candy A to Z: B is for Blow-Pops!

That’s a Blow-Pop! Who remembers that awesome commercial from the early 90s with all those kids in neon outfits and permed hair going through the different flavors of a Charms Blow-Pop?  My favorite was the goofy way the little girl squeaks out “Strawberry!” I’m pretty sure that the producers at Saved By the Bell liked the wardrobes so much from this commercial that they decided to hire the costume designer.

Have you heard of Tattly?  It’s this amazingly awesome fake tattoo company that sells really fun rad designs (not clip-arty at all!).  My favorite?  The whirly-pops,of course! How great would these be for having at a birthday party, right?  All the kiddos (and probably some super cool adults too) would love to do this as a fun activity, or to receive a Tattly in their goody-bag.  They even have some.

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, then you know that there are two types of sweets that I just can’t resist.  The first is anything S’Mores and the second is anything with peanut butter.  So when I saw these Peanut Butter Blowout Cookies on Cookie Madness I just about freaked out.  Don’t they look A-MAZ-ING?!!? Her idea to add M&Ms to the recipe was a good call,.

Words cannot describe how much I love Mike & Ike and the geniuses behind their brand for this movie trailer.  First about a year ago Mike & Ike broke up and started asking everyone if they were on Team Mike or Team Ike?  And now they’ve come out with this gem: This is so silly and so over-the-top and just so delightful, how can you not love it?

Trend Alert – Letter-Shaped Candy Dishes!

We see lots and lots of candy buffets and dessert tables around here, and one thing we’ve noticed that is in ever-increasing number is the letter-shaped candy dish, usually spelling out the name of the birthday boy or girl, or the first or last names of the wedding couple, or just L-O-V-E, or some other cool word.  Take a look at some recent photos we’ve come across: Photo from HostessWithTheMostess.com.

You’ll Always Be Invited Back With These Hostess Gifts!

Are you tired of bringing a plain old bottle of wine with you to every dinner party where it gets put in the wine rack or set upon the buffet table with nary a glance?  It’s true, wine as a hostess gift is cliche (although it will never go out of style), so maybe it’s time to switch things up a bit and give a different kind of hostess gift..

Is this just the cutest thing party you’ve ever seen?  And what a perfect symbol the giraffe is for how fast children grow.  I know mine are shooting up like weeds, but no one wants to have weeds as their party theme (unless they’re stoners, but that’s a whole other party blog) so giraffes are a much better option.  I also love this because of the candy buffet (duh!).  Yellow.

Calling All Monsters for a Monsters University Party!

Calling All Monsters for a Monsters University Party!

This is my son’s favorite movie this summer – Monster’s University.  We took him a few weeks ago and all he can talk about is “that monster movie” and how much fun he had going to see it.  That’s why I just LOVE this Monster’s University Party – check out some pics! The blue, green and purple color scheme is adorable and can work for both boy and girl monsters..

These Magic Turtle Bars Have Changed My Life…

I think after this I will never make another Turtle Bar recipe again.  With this recipe, I can conclude my search.  It is so simple, yet completely amazing and I just don’t think any other Turtle Bar recipe can ever achieve the greatness that this one has.  Just look at these mouth-watering pictures from ChocolateChocolateandMore.com. One of the best things about this recipe is how simple it is and how.

A “Beary” Sweet Birthday Party!

This is soooo adorable – a birthday party theme of teddy bears!  I love, love, love this theme – it’s so snuggly and cute! And you see that giant bear in the middle of the table?  Yeah, that’s the CAKE! Best of all, I know a certain candy  that would make a great item for a candy buffet – gummy bears!  We have soooooo many different kinds of gummy bears.

Sweet Strawberry Party!

Sweet Strawberry Party!

We are in the throws of fresh strawberry season and I just can’t get enough.  Where I live, the local strawberry farm sets up strawberry stands throughout town (like the one below) and delivers fresh picked berries every morning for sale.  They are the sweetest, juiciest, yummiest berries I have ever tasted and I get sad every year when those strawberry houses get towed away and stored in a barn.

Drink Station Ideas – Lemonade and Limeade

Drink Station Ideas – Lemonade and Limeade

I love it when people get creative with the drink stations at their parties.  A bland table with a bunch of two-liters and red Solo cups is soooo 1990s. It’s time to really jazz things up and have a special drink for your party – like this amazing Limeade stand! This photo (and the idea, actually) comes from One Charming Party, and we think it’s just FAB-U-LOUS!  Think of all.

Did your inner monologue just go “Awwwwwwwwww!” after seeing this?  Mine did the first time I saw these photos too.  They’re just too adorable! This is such a sweet party theme for a little boy or girl.  Probably best for kiddos 3 and under, but such a creative idea and so simple to pull off.  Here are some more pics: The dog food bowl full of malt balls just makes.
