- It's easiest if you use the thinnest wooden skewers you can find
- Softer candies work better, too--nothing harder than a gummy!
- The grosser the candy, the more little ones will love skewering them on their candy kabobs.
Speaking of gross candies, look what I found when I finished making my skewers! Fuzzy, moldy, repulsive gummy body parts! These are completely disgusting, but not for the reason the manufacturer intended. I purchased them about a week ago, but I can only guess that they must have sat on that store shelf much, much longer before some unwitting sap (me!) picked them up. So I guess I can add a fourth piece of advice to the "recipe" above: make sure your candies aren't moldy! Sure, it seems obvious, until you're staring down a white and fuzzy gummy nose with a queasy feeling in your stomach.
