Edible Jewelry


  • 20 to 30 minutes


  • Food items that can be strung, like black licorice shoestring, cereal pieces with holes, Lifesaver candies, and knotted pretzels


  1. Measure the licorice and cut it in lengths for bracelets and necklaces making sure to allow enough length to tie a knot.
  2. String on the other candies, cereal, and pretzels and wear until you get hungry.


  • Wrap the jewelry items and give them as gifts.
  • Cover a small box with the items, using a glue of confectioners' sugar thinned with water to make an edible house with windows and doors.
  • Use the same glue as above to stick items to a strip of cardboard that can be held in the hand or kept in the car for a snack. Package in sealable plastic bags.
