How to make peppermint candy ornaments

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Unwrap peppermint candy from plastic and set them aside. Spray cookie cutters with pam spray and place them on the cookie sheet.

Place peppermint candy in the cookie cutters.

Bake for about 4-9 minutes, keeping a close eye on them as they bake (as the time depends on the candy and on your oven). When you see they are melted pull them out.

Once they fully harden, lightly push them out of cookie cutters.

Once cooled use the hot glue got to put a little dab on the back of it. push in your ribbon and let the glue dry.

These look deliciously sweet don’t they? A word of warning though for those of you who do not have a wintery Christmas – if the temperatures are high and ants are active in your region it is best to seal these with a good sealant.
