Re-wrapping Hershey's is becoming more and more popular and who wouldn't love to have something personalized?! I personally love when things are customized for a specific person or a certain event. At work, the idea of wrapping King Size Hershey candy bars came up for a graduation event and I was all about it. It's so easy to do that I decided to wrap a Godiva chocolate bar for my mom's birthday (don't worry, that wasn't the only thing that I got her).
Beware that this can be a little time consuming. More time consuming if you are like me and like things perfect or close to perfect. If you have a few candy bars that you want to wrap, it shouldn't take you too long, however if you are wrapping them for a big event, you might want to recruit some extra hands. I was lucky enough to have help because wrapping more than 200 candy bars by myself would have taken A LOT longer.
You can find the foil wrapping at stores that sell cake supplies or online.Wilton makes a Fanci-Foil Wrap in 3 colors. I was really wishing they would have more colors, but I think next time I want try using shiny wrapping paper that way I can have a variety of colors. If you are buying precut foil online, be sure to check to see if the measurements will wrap around your candy bar. If you can't find paper backed foil or don't want to spend the extra money, I figured out an alternative that uses supplies typically found around the house, although I wouldn't suggest doing it because it takes a really long time and the foil isn't as forgiving when fold.
I'm going to show you how you can make your own with the ones for work.
