I made these ghoulish DIY Halloween Gummy Kabobs for my Halloween Monster Float drinks, but there are so many different ways you can use them! In a cocktail, as candy favors, or miniature versions atop cupcakes!
DIY Halloween Gummy Kabobs
I put these DIY Halloween Gummy Kabobs in my Halloween Monster Floats as a garnish or swizzle stick, but you can make these DIY Halloween Gummy Kabobs and wrap them up individually in cellophane to give out as a favor at a Halloween party!
Or you can make mini versions and use them as cupcake toppers! Can you imagine little ears, eyeballs, and teeth on top of cupcakes?
Someone recently asked me where they could find the gummies. I purchased the ears, eyeballs, and worms mixes at either the 99 Cent Store or Dollar Tree and the teeth at Target, but in case they don’t have them, I’ve linked a few right here:
And some here which are WAY overpriced on Amazon:
And here’s a link to some skewer sticks – you pick the size:
I know some people insist on soaking the skewer sticks or spraying them with a non-stick spray to make candy kabobs, but honestly, I say don’t bother.
The only tricky part about these is when working with a skinny piece of candy, like the ears. You simply thread a small portion of the back of the ear onto the skewer instead of going through the entire piece of candy through the middle. Plan on having a few extras in case you don’t go deep enough and end up ripping through the back without threading it all the way through. In case it helps, I think I ripped through 3 ears when making these and I made 8 Halloween gummy candy kabobs total.
