REESE’S Miniatures Snowman Candy Jars

Snowman Candy Jars

Calling all peanut butter cup lovers! I’m partnering with The Hershey Company this holiday season and getting crafty with candy. I made the sweetest snowmen candy jars and you can make them too! I’ll show you how easy they are with the help of REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures.

Reese's Miniatures

REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups are by far my first and forever-favorite go-to chocolate candy. So, getting to play with them for The Hershey Company makes me super happy. I hope these sweet snowmen make you just as excited to get crafty and celebrate the holiday season! It’s a fun way to make special memories with friends and family during one of the most festive times of the year. Plus, they make pretty adorable handmade gifts.

Snowman Candy Jar Materials

Okay, let’s get started…

Materials + Tools:
(NOTE: candies used for decoration on outside of jar are not to be eaten)

  • 4-inch smooth styrofoam balls
  • knife
  • 1 quart smooth mason jars (regular mouth opening, not wide mouth)
  • glue gun
  • REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures (1-11 oz. bag equals about 34 candies and I used about 50 for each finished jar)
  • non-toxic craft glue
  • white crystal craft glitter
  • paint brush
  • orange clay or fondant for noses (dried out)
  • red and green felt (peel and stick and regular)
  • scissors
  • toothpicks
  • ribbon or twine
  • small black pom poms (7mm)
  • giant white chenille stems
  • fluff stuffing for snow
  • chocolate candy coating

Start out by trimming off the bottom of a four-inch smooth styrofoam ball with a sharp knife so that the diameter is about two inches. Place the ball on top of a towel when cutting so you don’t dent the ball.

Making Candy Jars

Attach the bottom of the ball to the top of a mason jar lid using a glue gun. Press firmly and hold until secure. The width of the ball will keep the two pieces of the mason jar lid from separating — this way you can still rotate the ball in position where you need it to go after the lid is on.

Snowman Noses

Make cute cone snowman noses. Shape out of orange clay (bake in the oven to dry out using directions on the package). You can also shape out of fondant and let dry. While the noses dry, you can get glittery — The really fun part.

Glittering

Using a paintbrush and holding by the lid, paint craft glue over the surface of the styrofoam ball and sprinkle with white glitter. Let dry. Make sure to sprinkle over a large paper plate so you can easily fold and return any excess glitter back to the container.

Reese's Miniatures Hats

Here’s a little hat trick. Cut out 2-1/4 inch circles out of adhesive felt. Attach three pieces together to increase the felt thickness and make a stiff brim. For each hat, attach two REESE’S Miniatures together with the tops facing each other. To attach, break a toothpick in half and push through the bottom of one candy. Use the glue gun to attach the second candy top-side down. Press gently until secure and let dry.

Making Reese's Hats

Attach the candies to the felt brim using the glue gun again and then tie ribbon or twine around the base. Use a dot of glue in back to help secure the ribbon in place.

Snowman Heads

Time to put our faces on. Use tiny black pom poms for eyes and mouths. Attach to the front using craft glue.

Use the glue gun to attach the nose and let dry.

Fill the jars with REESE’S Miniatures. You can do all of one color or mix and match with your favorite foils. I love the solid color look for these.

Snow Cute

Oh my gosh… snow cute!!!!

Reese's Snowman Candy Jars

Attach a 1 x 6-inch felt strip to the snowman’s head using a glue gun on either end to secure. Then, glue a REESE’S candy on either side for ear muffs.

Finish the face by attaching the hat on top of the headband, slightly tilted forward with the glue gun. He’s looking pretty dapper just like this, but snowmen get cold and they need to bundle up.

Snowman Jars

Hey sweet face!

Twist tie a fluffy jumbo chenille stem around their necks to keep warm… but really just to be cute.

Snowman Candy Jars

Like super cute. I’m in love.

If you like, before filling the jars with candy, place a small handful of fluff in the bottom for snow.

Reese's Buttons

But wait, our snowman needs to button up. That’s right, remove foil wrappers and the candies make perfect buttons. Just melt a little chocolate candy coating and apply to the top of the candy with a toothpick. Press candy gently to the front of the jar and hold in place until set.

Festive, fun and yum!
Enjoy!

  5. A zinc metalized coating will preserve the steel galvanically: it will corrode in preference to steel, continuing to protect as long as any zinc remains in the immediate area. The surface of a metalized coating allows excellent adhesion of sealers and topcoats. The effect of this compound is a synergistic coating system that will preserve the underlying steel and require little or no maintenance for many years.
