Firecracker Favors

Firecracker Favors

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

Don't be nervous -- these fireworks aren't the exploding kind. In fact, they're meant to be grabbed (and eventually eaten!). Made from candy rolls, they add a sparkling touch to a Fourth of July party.


  • Roll of candy (we used Life Savers)
  • Colored tape
  • Foil party picks


For each firecracker, remove the outer wrapper from a roll of candy. Wrap the inner lining with colored tape.

Insert foil party picks into the center of the roll, snapping off part of the pick if needed to get the correct length.
