Default Packaging homemade candy??

Hello,
I will be making some homemade candy as a housewarming gift for
Thanksgiving and wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions on a
pretty way to package the candy and to keep it fresh? For instance,
should I use a metal tin box with some tissue paper inside or is there
a better way to package the candy in a nice, presentable way?

Stephanie

You can find paper candy cups in kitchen supply and party supply
stores.

What kind of candy? Individual pieces? A block of fudge? Individually
wrapped? A friend lines a tin with waxed paper and
lays/piles/stacks/smashes her ace peanut brittle in it. I used to make
several kinds of candies and would put them in paper pleated candy cups
(Maid of Scandinavia/Sweet Celebrations/Wilton) and box them. Pretty
spiffy looking if I do say. I bought the boxes from the Maid, too.
(They're a local company.) Taffy wrappers are available for wrapping
caramels -- dump those into a tin. The candy boxes come in a variety of
sizes.

If you live near a Walmart, you can get the cups there. They should be in
the crafts area, along with some other Wilton candy-making supplies.
