In our house, the holidays come and go with lots of decorations. They also typically come with treats. And if my husband liked candy, there would be a lot more of it in our place during the holidays. Sadly, I have to make treats for my friends and co-workers instead, since he won’t eat any of it. This July 4th I am particularly trying to entice him with candy and treats. In other words: fatten him up. He’s going on a Bachelor party trip to Cabo in a few weeks, he doesn’t need to pack all six abs does he? I mean, I’ll let him take one or two, but the rest can be filled in with pizza and cookies.
While cruising the candy aisles at my local Dollar Tree, in an attempt to bring home something that would wet his whistle, I got a tad side-tracked and found myself standing in the July 4th aisle instead. Of course, these tiny tin buckets stood out to me. I mean, they’re adorable. They’re tiny, they’re patriotic, and they can be filled with candy! Joy!
I picked up some patriotic Hershey kisses to fill my mini buckets with, printed my tags, and used some wire twine to tie the tags to each bucket. If they weren’t cute before, they’re definitely cute now. If my husband won’t appreciate them (honey, there’s only 22 calories in each Kiss), then my friends and co-workers will just get lucky with a holiday treat.
