So after Halloween, take some of those left over hard candies, like Lifesavers, and lets make them into Christmas Ornaments. It's number 5 at the Science20 blog.
You will need:
Heavy metal cookie cutters (large copper ones are ideal)
Lifesavers or other hard candy
Narrow shiny ribbon
Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray cookie cutters and foil with vegetable spray. Fill cookie cutters with candy in a single layer using however many will fit inside.
Bake 5 to 7 minutes until candies are melted.
Remove from oven and allow to cool about 2 minutes. Make a hole in each with a straw to thread the ribbon through for hanging, then continue cooling until the cutters can be handled. Gently pull the cutters away from candy ornament.
Thread with ribbon, and your ready to hang them on your tree.
Though in my case, I think we'll make a garland out of them, and hang them up in the window.
