I bought them off eBay because I didn't want to buy 1000 of them from a wholesaler. I have really struggled with what to wrap the fudge in, though. Fudge shops seem to wrap it in the waxed deli type papers when they cut and sell it but it won't stay fresh long that way.

What I did was buy some commercial grade plastic wrap, which is heavier than your normal type. I have been wrapping the slab in that, then placing it in the boxes. Looks very nice. I bought white boxes and also some with holly leaves on them. Then I bought red and green sparkly elastic bands to top them off with. They look nice. I also did some in tins for my daughter's work bazarr. The boxes sold better. (I charged a bit more for the tins because they cost me more to buy)

For the peanut brittle, etc., I bought Wilton clear bags and used that. For holidays I will probably use a curly ribbon over the silver twist tie.

Sometimes for my neighbors and friends I buy little holiday pkgs (boxes, bags, containers) at WalMart, Deals or Dollar Tree. You can get some nice looking things at minimal cost at all three.


Your neighbors won't care how it's packaged, though! They'll just be happy to receive it and know you thought about them.


Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
