I've been meaning to post these for at least a year because I really love things on sticks and I really love things that are cute and easy. Kids go crazy for them and they make darling centerpieces for parties as well.
Pink and brown skewers are my favorite for girl baby showers and blue/white for boy showers. If I can ever find some Fourth of July taffy, those will be happening soon!
I've gotta say it. Be careful. I may or may not have put a skewer sliver right through my finger while making these (as in... in one side... out the other... I almost fainted when I had to pull it out. It wasn't the size of the entire skewer but it was about 1/3 as thick- which is pretty darn thick to be threaded through your finger, thank you very much!)
If you have a taffy that's sticking, wrap a clean dishtowel around your hand and use that to jam the taffy down the stick, not your bare hands! If you use fresh taffy this really shouldn't be a problem. They are usually pretty easy to thread.
