If possible, I suggest lining the box with wax paper, and putting the candy inside. That way guests won’t have to open a box then a bag. And it then seems the boxes are made for food, and guests won’t think it is gross in anyway. Some may see candy inside a plain box and think it is unsanitary.

I agree, some sort of liner.  I think either the waxed paper or the cupcake liner you mentioned would both work just fine

How did you make this? I love this idea, and it would be great to put on the reception tables.

Cupcake Liner Definitely and If The Box Is Already White Switch Up The Colors In the Liners.

you could use a cupcake liner that is light blue or beige or beachy themed… and my boyfriend and I were looking at this and he suggested you crush up graham cracker crumbs to line the bottom of the box or cupcake liner since the crumbs resemble sand

Hi!   We are doing this too!  I already made two text batches.  We plan to put in it small brown paper bags (penny candy bags) that we will decorate.   The candy wasn’t hard to make at all and it was delicious, just a little time consuming.   

I was trying to figure out how far in advance we can make the candy.  Once it was made, I put some in a paper bag with nothing else, then I put some in wax paper and then in the bag, and the rest of it (the leftovers) was just in a plastic container and I didn’t touch it for a week.  The candy in the paper bag alone was all stuck together and stuck to the bag.  It absorbs moisture 🙁   The stuff in the wax paper was a little better, but still stuck together, and the stuff in the plastic container was perfectly fine.  So I would say hold off as long as you can if you are going to put it in any kind of paper container or wrap it in plastic first.  I bought little plastic bags that the candy will go in before it goes in the paper bag.  That’s for my next test batch!  I know it’s a lot of work for our guests to get into but I am hoping it will keep much better.  Good luck!
