SweeTARTS Mason Jar Candy Easter Baskets DIY

by Jillian Leslie on

Mason Jar Easter Candy Baskets | CatchMyParty.com

I was asked by Nestlé to come up with a creative Easter basket DIY using their SweeTARTS Soft Bites Bunnies, Sour Bunny Gummies, Chicks, Ducks & Bunnies and Soft & Chewy Ropes. Not a bad job, right?

So check out these cute SweetTARTS mason jar candy Easter baskets I made! Wouldn't these be fun to give to your guests at your Easter celebration?

SweetTARTS Mason Jar Candy Easter Baskets DIY | CatchMyParty.com

I started with 4 oz. mason jars as my base. I filled them with SweeTARTS Chicks, Ducks, & Bunnies.

SweetTARTS Mason Jar Candy Easter Baskets DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Then, using a sharp knife, I chopped up some of the SweeTARTS Soft & Chewy Ropes into pieces that were about 1/4 inch thick to make candy beads.

SweetTARTS Mason Jar Candy Easter Baskets DIY | CatchMyParty.com

I used 28 gauge galvanized wire, which is very pliable, and cut pieces that were about a foot long. Then I started stringing the SweeTARTS Softbites Bunnies, SweeTARTS Sour Bunny Gummies, and candy rope beads onto the wire.

SweetTARTS Mason Jar Candy Easter Baskets DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Next, I wrapped my mini candy garlands around the mason jars and affixed the ends by twisting the wires.

SweetTARTS Mason Jar Candy Easter Baskets DIY | CatchMyParty.com

I thought the SweeTARTS Soft & Chewy Ropes would make the perfect basket handles, so I cut small slits at the ends of each rope and attached them to the sides of my jars.

SweetTARTS Mason Jar Candy Easter Baskets DIY | CatchMyParty.com

And here you have it... my SweeTARTS mason jar candy Easter baskets DIY! I love how they turned out, and my daughter couldn't wait for me to finish taking photos so she could dig in!

SweetTARTS Mason Jar Candy Easter Baskets DIY | CatchMyParty.com

We love sour at our house, so we are all fighting over the SweeTARTS Sour Bunny Gummies! If you like candies that make you pucker, these are for you!

SweetTARTS Mason Jar Candy Easter Baskets DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Your kids will love finding all these SweeTARTS candies in their plastic Easter eggs this year! And since they won't be around forever, grab some before they're gone at your local store!  SweeTARTS Soft Bites Bunnies, Sour Bunny Gummies and Soft & Chewy Ropes contain no artificial flavors or colors.

Puff Pastry Cheeseburger Bites | CatchMyParty.com

Want to cook something totally delicious and super simple? Try these puff pastry cheeseburger bites. They are out of this world! You get the flakiness of the puffed pastry, mixed the satisfying char and cheese of the burger in one tiny bite. These won't last. Promise!

Puff Pastry Cheeseburger Bites

Ingredients
  • Puff pastry sheets
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • Ketchup
  • Dill pickle slices
  • Monterey Jack cheese
Creamy Beef Sauce
  • 4 tablespoons butter, salted
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Worchestire sauce
Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 ℉. Spray cooking oil on a mini muffin tray. Set aside.

Let puff pastry thaw according to package instructions. Unfold puff pastry on a cutting board. Using a small circle cookie cutter, cut out circles slightly larger than the mini cookie pan. Press each circle into the muffin pan, forming a cup. Bake the puff pastry cups at 400 ℉ for 7-8 minutes.

Pressing the Cut Pastry to a Muffin Pan | CatchMyParty.com

Brown the ground beef and drain any excess fat. Season with salt, pepper and onion powder. Cover with foil to keep the meat hot.

Melt butter in small saucepan. Whisk in flour until a thick paste forms. Slowly pour in beef broth, whisking to blend the paste. Stir in heavy cream and worchestire. Bring to a simmer and cook until sauce begins to thicken.

Remove puff pastry from oven. Remove each cup while they are still warm from the pan. Fill each puff pastry cup with seasoned ground beef (make sure the ground beef is hot enough to melt the cheese).

Pour a tablespoon of hot creamy sauce over each hamburger bowl. Top with cheese, ketchup and dill pickle slices. Serve when hot.
