Since the grandkids were little, I gave them each a tiny mesh bag of "chocolate money" to carry on a tradition my grandmother started when I was a little girl. Evidently, the kids have loved getting chocolate money so much that now their parents are including it in their stockings at home. When they get to my house, it's: "Oh... more chocolate money." I had to come up with something else... and thanks to Pinterest, I did!
Run a line of glue along the inside of each candy cane and attach to the bottom of the KitKat bar. I propped the KitKats on top of the other candy selected to make it easier to attach the candy canes and give them time to cool.
I played with the little candy bars to see how best to stack them and arrived at this arrangement.
I decided not to use the double-sided tape since these won't be going anywhere (like a cookie exchange) and thought the ribbon would be sufficient to hold the candy on the "sled."
The original idea (as found on Pinterest) was from Just Say Sew in a post about a cookie exchange.

I also thought this would be a neat way to give a teen a cash or a check by including it in a small envelope attached to the candy sled.
Ho ho ho!
