Step 2.

Step 3. For special occassions, consider getting adorable custom printed  Personalized M&M’S® Candies for the candy bag.  My Sister-In-Law got these for her daughter’s 16th birthday party, with the words “Sweet”, “16th Birthday” and “Stephanie” printed on the bags.  She ordered 3 bags and got one for FREE.  It added a special custom touch to the favors without much expense.
