Homemade Christmas Ornaments: Candy Canes

Submitted by Nan R. of South Carolina

"Candy Cane Christmas Ornament"


Any flavor candy canes, your choice
metal cookie or biscuit cutters or muffin tin
cooking spray
string or ribbon


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. 

Spray a baking sheet where candy will be placed. I would advise only doing a few at a time for better results. Also spray cookie/biscuit cutters and place on baking sheet. 

Unwrap candy canes and break into small pieces. (Tip: the curve at the top of the canes can be used to form a heart.) Cover the bottom of the cutters with the cane pieces. Place in oven and bake for about 5 to 8 minutes. 

As soon as the candy starts melting take it out of oven. Spray the end of a toothpick and use it to quickly make a small hole to put your string or ribbon for hanging. 

When candy begins to cool off carefully use toothpick around edges to gently help loosen candy and remove from cutter.
