Are you ready for the holidays? How about giving a gift of ugly sweaters this year that everyone will love? The Hershey Company are prepared this year to celebrate with their Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates. These chocolates are decked out in their ugly sweaters and are perfect gifts for your ugly sweater party. I decided to not only give these delicious chocolates to a special someone; but also use them to create the perfect Ugly Sweater Gift Bag. I chose to make a Christmas Tree sweater on my gift bag using the Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates. Feel free to make any design for your ugly sweater.
How To Create An Ugly Sweater Gift Bag
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- 2 bags of Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates
- 2 bags of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures in holiday foils
- 1 paper gift bag
- glue dots (not a hot glue gun-that would melt the chocolate)
**Disclaimer: Please exercise caution when using hot glue guns. Completed craft is for decorative purposes only, please do not eat candy included in the craft.
Tip #1: It is always best to lay out your Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates in design that you want before attaching them to the gift bag.
Tip #2: Take a photo with your cell phone if you want help remembering how you laid out the chocolates.
Step 1: Open up one bag of the Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates. These will be used to create your ugly sweater design. If you need to, layout your design before you glue. Step 2: Using the green foil wrapped chocolates, attach them onto the bag into a Christmas Tree shape using the glue dots. Usually one glue dot per chocolate will work.
Step 3: Attach one Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Miniature in holiday foil to the bottom of the tree for it’s trunk. Since this is a larger piece of chocolate, you may need to use a couple of glue dots to make sure the candy stays in place.
Step 4: Attach a blue foil wrapped chocolate as the topper to the Christmas Tree. Step 5: Using the red foil wrapped chocolates, outline the ugly sweater body. Step 6: Using the blue foil wrapped chocolates, attach them to the bag so they look like the ugly sweater’s sleeves. Step 7: Place the unopened bags of Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures in holiday foils inside the gift bag. Step 8: Add some tissue paper and the gift of ugly sweaters is complete. Now you have a gift for someone special and you have some delicious leftovers for yourself! Who could resist this ugly sweater gift? The Hershey’s Company will have several festive treats located exclusively at Walmart. These treats include:
- Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures in holiday foils
- a three-pound Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar
- giant Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates
- a one-pound Reese’s Peanut Butter Santa
Even if you didn’t celebrate with Hershey’s this year for National Ugly Sweater Day, you certainly can spread cheer with these treats. They make great stocking stuffers – hint, hint.
