  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Cut a 1-1/2-inch piece of a plastic drinking straw; set aside to make hole in ornament. Using ring-shaped hard candies, sold in a bag; unwrap 4 red and 3 white candies.
  • Arrange ring-shaped hard candies on paper in 6-inch candy cane shape, alternating colours.
  • Bake 3 to 6 min. or until candies are melted. Remove from oven. Make a hole, about 1/2 inch from the top, by pressing the drinking straw piece into ornament, leaving in place until candy is cooled.
  • Cool completely before removing ornament from paper. Gently remove straw. Thread a 6- to 8-inch piece of yarn, ribbon or shoestring licorice into the hole to hang the ornament.

Cooking Know-How

Prepare only one ornament at a time on each baking sheet. Since the candies melt at different rates, baking more than one at a time could cause some ornaments to over-bake.

Food Facts

This recipe was tested using ring-shaped hard candies that are sold in a bag. Due to their larger size they are NOT interchangeable with ring-shaped hard candies sold in a roll.

    Great to do with kids. Looks great on tree. only thing they break very easy. some of the candy cooks faster than the others. Over al a great Christmas Ornament.

    My kids loved making these as gifts for relatives. They need to be coated with modge podge or something like it so they don't stick to other things and hands.

    This was a fun activity (hard to remove the straws) to do with my 3 year old. The candies did melt at different rates (as stated). To solve our straw problem, I dipped them in margarine before sticking them in the candy.
