How To Assemble the Candy Skewers
- Start by sliding one White Nonpareils Coated Gummy Candy onto the skewer. Stop 2 inches from the bottom of the skewer.
- Add two more candies of your choosing to the skewer. Then, fold a Sour Belt back and forth on top of itself like an accordion. Slide the accordion sour belt onto the skewer, leaving 1 inch off. Roll the remaining inch into a spiral and slide the skewer up through the center and pull it down.
- Add two more candies of your choosing. Top the skewer off with two White Nonpareils Coated Gummy Candies at the top.
How To Assemble The Little Mermaid Snack Board

- Place the remaining board ingredients around the bowl until the entire bowl has filled up.
Tips And Advice
Storage – I recommend assembling this board right before you serve it to your guests. The longer some of the ingredients sit out the harder they’ll get. While I don’t recommend saving it, you could cover the leftovers with plastic wrap and store it in the fridge for up to a day if you’d like.
Here is what you’ll need to assemble your Little Mermaid Snack Board.
Board Assembly Tips
Before you assemble, place the board where you are planning on serving it. It may be difficult to move once assembled.
Using small bowls or ramequins to place some ingredients in adds height to the board, and keeps it looking clean. It can also act as a barrier to keep some ingredients from rolling off the board.
To make your board look visually appealing, try to keep the heavier items on the outside of the board so the looser, lighter items in the middle don’t roll around. Also, do your best to keep the same colors, or similar foods away from each other. For example, don’t place pink candy next to another kind of pink candy, and don’t place gummies next to similar looking gummies.
You can arrange your snack board however you see fit. It’s best to include a selection of a lot of different things, that way everyone snacking on it will be happy. Remember to keep similar ingredients away from each other, and make the board look as colorful as possible!

Under The Sea Candy Skewers
- Begin by gently sliding one White Nonpareils Coated Gummy Candy onto the skewer. Stop 2 inches from the bottom of the skewer, leaving a handhold.

- Next, fold a Sour Belt back and forth like an accordion and slide it onto the top of the skewer, leaving 1 inch off. Roll the remaining inch into a spiral and slide the skewer up through the center.

Assembling The Board
- Begin by placing your board on your serving area.
- Fill a small bowl (or ramequin) with Blue Salt Water Taffy and place it near the center of your board.
- Fill in sections of your board with the rest of the ingredients and enjoy!
- Make sure to set the board in the place you are planning to serve it. It’s likely that you will not be able to pick it up or move it once everything has been added!
- It’s good practice to use small bowls or ramequins as anchor points! They serve as containers for ingredients that tend to roll, barriers for other ingredients to lean against, and visual resting points!
- Place large or heavy desserts around the border of your board to act as another barrier for other ingredients to rest against!
