Sweet Treats

My mom sent some jars of sweet treats in the Christmas box for Johnny. (I'm a little late in posting this, and some of the jars were already dug into at the time of photos.)

Each one was in a jar that I can reuse later. She labeled the tops to let us know what was inside.

These are delicious pepita (pumpkin seed) brittle cubes.

Chocolate covered sunflower seeds. Really tasty and beautifully bright!

Rock candy! Har har - get it!!? These are Johnny's favorite - they're dark chocolate.

And "chicken bones" which are cinnamon flavored hard candy with a chocolate "marrow" in the center.

She purchased these in bulk bins for Christmas gifts by weight, then divided amongst recipients and jars. I think it's a really cute, special idea!

Hi Christina, such a simple idea that is so nice. THanks for sharing, I'm going to keep this is mind for gifts through the year! Have a great day.

Chicken bones! Is that the "for real" name? My grandmother used to buy drugstore candy all the time and that was one of the types, but I think it was labeled as something else. Hard to remember now, but hard candy other than starlight mints is really hard to find around here.

@Tiffany - chicken bones was the name on the bin she bought it out of. I'm not sure if it goes by another name? This was in PEI Canada, so maybe US has it's own name?

You can never go wrong with getting sweet treats in the mail! :-)
