Hershey Nugget Scriptures

This year in Primary the theme is " I know the scriptures are true." At the beginning of the year we challenged the kids to read their scriptures and to bring them to primary and every time they did they got to write their name on a paper coin and put it in our treasure box. We also gave them a reading chart that went through the month of April. I saw this cute idea here, and as a presidency we decided to make them for the kids.
I typed the scripture on my computer and cut into strips. Sorry about all the crinkles on the paper, but I forgot to take pictures and had to tear one apart to show you how I made them.
You need two Hershey nuggets for each scripture. I used milk chocolate, to stay away from anyone having allergies.
I took my strip of paper, glued it and wrapped it around the two candy bars.
I then cut a piece of black paper to make it look like the cover of the scriptures.

I glued the black piece of paper to the back of the candy and added ribbon. They were so easy to make and they were a HUGE hit with the kids.

  13. These are adorable! Thanks for sharing! I'm making some, but wondered - what kind of glue did you use? I'm worried hot glue might melt the chocolate, but normal glue doesn't seem like it would be strong enough. Glue dots?

  14. Tink, I use a glue stick for the paper that wrapped around the candy and then used hot glue for the base and it didn't melt the chocolate. Hope that helps!

  15. These are beautiful!

    Do you happen to have a template for the scripture? How did you set it up in Word? I need to make about 60 of them & it would sure save time if I could get that information.

    Thanks!

  16. Teri, I typed the scripture in word and just left about five or six spaces to make the second page of the scripture. Copied as many that would fit on a page and then printed. Hope this helps.

    Love the scripture chocolates. Avery makes an address sticky label that is about that size. (1" x 2 5/8") Type the scripture in the template size and voila - you have instant stickers. Stick them on the candy, then onto the cover and done. :) Thanks so much for the idea!

  19. God has given me something for your business and added sales and His Kingdom! !
    Greeting Cards are a multi billion dollar business so capture some of this money and share God!
    Make them out of chocolate, bubble gum, cracker, dryed fruits, Etc
    Paper greeting cards cost $4.00 to $6.00 and people just throw them I'm the trash but now they get a treat and can eat them ... what a better value! Amen Blessings
