Heady with ginger, clove, and nutmeg, these Gingerbread Caramels make sweet stocking stuffers, party favors, or place settings when packaged in cute cones.


  • 7 1/4-inch squares of card stock or heavyweight paper in red

  • Double-sided tape

  • 7 inches of red ribbon per cone


  1. Turn a card stock square to form a diamond.

  2. Fold but do not crease the right side of the paper across center.

  3. Repeat with the left side, forming a cone. Tape to secure.

  4. Fill cone with caramels or other candy, and fold tip over the opening, without creasing paper. Form ribbon into a loop, place at the closure, and secure a sticker to the ribbon and tip with tape.
