Candy Scriptures – The Sweet Story of Christmas

Candy Scriptures

A few years ago, my mom gave me one of these cute little candy scriptures.  It had been given to her by someone at church right before Christmas.  Such clever idea!  I wish I knew who came up with this cute thing, so I could give proper credit.

I made up a few to give away and have put together the instructions on how I made mine.  I have also attached a pdf printable with the tiny little scripture story of Jesus’ birth found in Luke 2 : 11-15. Click on the link at the bottom of the page to download it and print it.

You will need:

Hershey’s Nugget Chocolate Candy

Black Cardstock

Red String or Embroidery Floss

Printed pdf (link at bottom of page)

White Glue

Glue Stick

For each set of scriptures, cut a piece of black card stock into a  2 x 1 1/2″” piece.   Cut a piece of red string or floss about 4-5″ long and glue it to the center of the small black rectangle as shown below.

Glue 2 Hershey’s Nuggets with white glue to the black cardsock piece as shown in the photo below.

Allow to dry.  Then cut the pdf printable scripture story. (You will need to trim it carefully to fit.) Fold in the center, crease it and spread glue stick onto the back of the printable and press evenly onto the candy.

  1. I cannot thank you enough for sharing the printable and instructions to make this!!! Jesus is what Christmas is all about and I LOVE making things that point my kids and grandkids to Jesus. I will definitely be making a lot of these! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Blessings to all of you!

  2. Love this. Question~~in one of the pictures it looks like there is something between the two pieces of candy….or is it just the way I’m looking at it?

    1. Oh, I see what you mean. I think it is just a reflection of the gold wrapper. There is actually nothing between them. I hope you enjoy them! Aren’t they cute?

    1. Yes they are edible. Since they are completely wrapped in the gold foil wrapper, the glue won’t come in contact with the chocolate.

  3. When I print the text is very small, unable to read. Could you possible increase the size or tell me what program you created it in? So cute!!!

  4. OMG!!!! This was a success at my church today. We had a Christmas brunch and I decided to make these for the tables. Everyone loved them! Thank you so much for this idea.

  5. One of our readers wrote a poem and submitted to us by email. She gave us permission to share; Thank you Sarah Roth!

    These little treats hold a message that is true,

    It’s all about God’s love and salvation for me and you.

    God loves you so much that a long time ago,

    He sent His very son to defeat our foe.

    This enemy’s the devil, who leads us into sin,

    Our sin is what blocks heaven’s gates, so we can’t enter in.

    But, a baby born in Bethlehem, sinless and so pure

    Was the gift of God’s own Son, a gift of love for sure.

    This baby’s name is Jesus, and He grew up into a man.

    He lived a sinless life to fulfill God’s plan.

    He taught, healed, and raised from the dead,

    Fulfilling the prophesies previously said.

    Then He took up the cross, was crucified, and died,

    That by the blood He shed, our sins are cast aside.

    Yes, He died on that cross to forgive us our sins,

    But the story’s not done…this is where it really begins!

    See, He didn’t stay dead. He rose the third day!

    He defeated sin and death so that we can pray,

    “God forgive us our sins, the big ones and small.”

    (He loves us so much, that He’ll forgive them all!)

    “God, guide us in life to follow your Son,

    And take us to heaven when our work on earth is done.”

    So, Jesus came for an incredible reason,

    He came because He loves you …so celebrate Him this season!

    (You can read much more about Jesus in the Bible. If you do not have a Bible, you can read it online at

    biblestudytools.com. The New Testament book of John is a good place to start:

    1. Yes Jacqualine! We are planning on a similar post using an Easter verse that will be up on our site in mid-February! (You are a mind reader!) Please be sure to check back then!

      1. Thanks so much Becky…maybe you could show me how to do it too… I love this idea… the people at our church loved this when I brought themin for the Christmas season…funny thing..most did not want to eat them..they were too cute…thanks for being a blessing to so manywithout even knowing it…

  6. Thank you for sharing this beautiful reminder of God’s great love for us and His willingness to die to pay the penalty for our sin. Thank you as well for the tutorial. It was so helpful.

  7. I love these! I have just recently made some for my activity day girls to remind them to read the scriptures. I enjoyed your tutorial, the pictures were so easy to follow. Could I offer just a variation or two? To speed up the process here is what I do; Instead of card stock I often use felt, black or brown (whichever I have), Then I discovered that double sided tape is quick and easy for putting the scripture paper onto the top of the nugget (it won’t wiggle & it saves drying time). I attach the scripture paper first then with a piece of regular tape I attach the ribbon or yarn to the back of the two nugget unit, run a bit of tacky glue down the middle fold and press the red yarn, ribbon, or floss onto it. When this is all done I turn it over, put a few drops of glue on the bottom at the 8 corners and place in onto the felt and it is done. I hope this is understandable. Thanks for the fun verse ideas.

  8. Can you add a different bible verse or send the format so I can possibly change it myself? Thank you! These are so neat!

  9. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site
    before but after going through a few of the posts I realized it’s
    new to me. Regardless, I’m definitely happy I discovered it
    and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!

  10. I am on a committee planning a craft retreat for late October. Our theme is All Things Christmas. The retreat is from Friday after work until Sunday afternoon. We have a speaker for Sunday morning. Each morning we leave a little treat at their crafting table. This will be perfect. I’ve done similar for a Ladies retreat and it was well received. Thanks for sharing and providing a download for the scriptures.

  11. iV BEEN DOING THESE FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS NOW, THEY R SO ADORABLE…THANK YOU FOR THE IDEAL…DO U HAVE ANY OTHER SCRIPTS YOU USE, IVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A NURSE ONE…….AGAIN THANKS FOR YOUR IDEAL….EVERYONE LOVES THESE
