plaster of paris
I found these beach pails at Target in the dollar bin and bought a couple of them. Prepare your plaster according to directions. It's really easy, just mix it until it looks like pancake batter. Line your tin with plastic wrap and pour in plaster. Let set about 10 minutes . Add your dowels (they should just stand on their own if the plaster has set up.), line them up so you will see candy when it's added. I let mine set a few hours and then added tissue in bottom of pail for decoration and to cover the plaster. I hot glued my candy bars to dowels. Some people tape them but hot glued has always worked for me. Just finish decorating them with ribbon and you are done. Pretty sweet huh?
