  1. You will need a clear circle container. I used this empty craft beads container. The container flipped upside down resembles a cake.

  3. Place candy on the bottom of the container.
  4. Place candy around the edge of the container.
  5. Place parchment paper (or regular, colorful tissue paper) down inside the cavity left in the candy arrangement thus far.
  6. Fill with more chocolates. Fold the paper up over the candy to hold in place. Replace the lid on the container.
