Peppermint Candy Ornaments
This simple Christmas Ornament Craft is one you can whip up in no time with just one ingredient – Peppermint candies! My kids loved filling our metal cookie cutters with these simple, easy to find mints and were AMAZED at the results we got.
You can use either the red and white or the green, red, and white peppermint candies. Unwrap candies as you need them.
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, I lightly greased the inside of several metal cookie cutters and pancake molds with butter. Then we put as many peppermint candies in each cookie cutter as fit. They will spread so don’t worry about the blank spaces.
Note: The pancake molds were the easiest to use as they had a nice handle that I could pull on to pop them out, but either work fine.
Cook the oven save cookie cutters/pancake molds filled with candy at 350 F for 5 minutes or so. Watch them carefully for the desired look. Remove from the oven and the them cool a minute or two so the candy starts to harden. Then carefully pull off cookie cutter.
Note: You can use a hot glue gun to attach an ornament hook, but if you prefer to make a hole, just poke a hole in the candy as soon as it comes out of the oven and continue to keep the hole open until the candy hardens.
