STEP 2: Use scotch tape to create a stencil for red candy stripes. We taped over the white,  allowing diagonal, doubled up stripes to show through. Feel free to get creative and create your own candylicious look.

(More detailed instructions on tape stenciling can be found here).

  1. Candy should be eaten in smllaer amounts, or combined with other things, since it’s mainly sugar. Also, if you include chocolate in candy, it expands to a lot of different purposes: drinks, other desserts, etc.I feel as if dessert is more of a last course for after a meal.
