  • Sprinkles or other decorations

  • Chopstick
  • Aluminum foil
  • Ribbon

What You Do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Help your child spray the cookie cutters with nonstick spray.
  3. If using cookie cutters, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay the cookie cutters on top, then have your child place a few candies into the cookie cutters in a single layer. A silicon candy mold works well too, and all you have to do is place the candies inside each mold.
  4. Put the cookie cutters in the oven and bakefor approximately 8-10 minutes or until the candy is fully melted. Carfeully remove from the oven.
  5. Your child can drop a few sprinkles on top as decoration, then let them cool for a few minutes so they are slightly hardened.
  6. When the candy is still a little soft, insert the tapered end of s chopstick into each candy to create a hole for the ribbon.
  7. Let the candy shapes cool completely, then carefully remove them from the cookie cutters or molds.
  8. Now thread a ribbon through the hole to create an ornament.

Place these tasty and beautiful ornament on a tree, hang them in a window, or suspend them from the ceiling for a breathtaking holiday display.
