Edible Beach Party

20140614-011635-4595934.jpg

 

My sister recently had a beach themed pool party. My children and I offered to make something fun to put as an edible centre piece. These are great for hosting a playdate, party, or to bring to someone else’s home.

The kids and I had a fun time making this and the party goers really liked them. The tray was eaten up.
All of the items (except for the blue jello) was purchased at the Dollarama. The brown sugar is in the food aisle and the umbrella tooth picks should be in the outdoor/camping aisle.

What You’ll Need
Clear Tray
1 bag of brown sugar
Wrapped caramel cubes
Teddy bear cookies
Rainbow candy strips
Umbrella Tooth picks

Instructions
Pour brown sugar on your tray. Pat it down. This is your pretend sand.
Cut your rainbow candy strips in half so you have two small pretend towels.
Line up your towels in two rows.
Lay your bears on all of the towels.
Unwrap your caramels and put them in a row in between the two towel rows.
Open your tooth pick umbrellas and stick them in the caramels to hold them still.
