Candy-Rock Favors

Martha Stewart Weddings, Fall 2004

They may look like the real thing, but candy pebbles in small galvanized pails are a sweet and delightful favor for an outdoor wedding; a note lets guests know they're for eating. The candy shown here is marzipan and chocolate-covered dried fruit in disguise. Print your message onto paper, cut into strips, wrap around the pails' handles, and secure with double-sided tape. Set the pails in trays filled with turbinado sugar.

    Where can you find the little buckets?

    The trays...use heavy duty baking trays, spray painted with white gloss enamal. Check Bed, Bath and Beyond, Micheal's even a restaurant supply for the trays.

    I looked everywhere for the best chocolate pebbles and this place seemed to have the ones with the best detail and best price. I am not real crazy about the brighter color ones.

    Does anyone know where to find the trays? I've also seen really nice wooden box trays, but can't find any that aren't really expensive. Any suggestions?... Thanks!

    Does anyone know where to find the trays? I've also seen photos of great wooden box trays, but can't find them anywhere that's not really expensive... Thanks!

    I am having a difficult time finding candy pebbles that look as good as the pebbles in this picture.

    Check in Michael's craft store I think I saw them there. I just
    love this idea, it's cute and classy especially for a out-door
    wedding, or even a retirement party with a note saying over
    the hill, or on the rocks

    Hi Carolyn,
    I saw them today at the Dollar Tree store. There are 3 little white metal buckets in a pack for a dollar.
