My favorite party favors are ones you can eat. (That's no surprise, I'm sure.) I've gathered a handful of fabulous ideas to share with you for your party guests. They're simple and sweet, and you can put them together in advance. Take a look:
1. Make your own fortune cookies. It's easier than you think to make these beautiful little cookies, and you can add your own predictions for a prosperous new year!
2. Giant, chocolate-dipped marshmallows with confetti-like sprinkles are so festive! Package them in cellophane bags, but don't be surprised if your guests tear them open before they get out the door.
3. A chocolate chip cookie packaged in a paper CD sleeve is pretty ingenious, and a great way to send a sweet note with an individual treat. Wrap them in baker's twine for ultimate presentation.
4. Candy confetti packets can be made with brown paper grocery bags, a sewing machine, and some brightly colored thread. Guests can rip them open to open a colorful spray of sweet candies. Such fun!
Have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve, and may 2012 bring you many sweet surprises!
And don't forget—this is your last chance to share your favorite Mrs. Fields memory to help us celebrate 35 years in business! You could win Mrs. Fields cookies for an entire year!
