1 ornament

what you need

 plastic drinking straw
 individually wrapped , Cherry and Pineapple Flavors (sold in bag)
piece  ribbon, yarn or shoestring licorice (about 6 to 8 inch)

Make It

PREHEAT oven to 325°F. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Cut a 1-1/2-inch-long piece from straw; set aside. Discard remaining length of straw. Unwrap candies; arrange in 6-inch-long candy cane shape on prepared baking sheet, alternating the candy flavors.

BAKE 3 min. or until candies are just melted. (Watch carefully through oven door and remove candy ornament from oven as soon as the candies are melted.) Remove ornament from oven. Spray one end of the straw piece with cooking spray. Use to make a hole about 1/2 inch from the top of the ornament by pressing the straw into the ornament. Let stand until ornament is completely cooled, frequently twisting the straw to prevent the straw from sticking to the ornament. Gently remove the straw.

THREAD the ribbon through the hole in the top of the ornament to use for hanging.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Cooking Know-How
Only prepare 1 ornament at a time on each baking sheet. Since the candies melt at different rates, baking more than 1 at a time could cause some ornaments to overbake. Ornaments are fragile. If ornament cracks, place pieces back together and return to oven just until pieces are melted back together. (Remove straw from ornament before returning ornament to oven.)
Food Facts
Using LIFE SAVERS 5-Flavor Hard Candies sold in the bag offers many different colors and flavors to choose from.
