How to Make Melted Hard Candy Ornaments

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

On a parchment lined baking sheet, lay the cookie cutters out and spray them well with the cooking spray.

Place pieces of the candies down into each cookie cutter. Break some candies into smaller pieces to fit into the smaller crevices. Fill in each one as good as possible in a single layer.

Put the baking sheet in the oven for 4-6 minutes, or until candies are melted.

Remove from oven and let them sit for about 1 minute. Take the wood skewer and make a hole in each ornament. Scrape around the outside edge of each cookie cutter to remove any melted candy that leaked out. Just pull it away with the skewer.

 

Let the ornaments finish cooling and gently pop out of the cookie cutters. I just pulled on the edges a bit to loosen the candy, and the ornaments popped out. Wipe any excess cooking spray off.

Now, tie a piece of twine onto each ornament, and hang on the tree.
