what you need

 plastic drinking straw
 assorted flavor ring-shaped hard candies or CREME SAVERS Hard Candies (sold in bag)
 Shoestring licorice

Make It

PREHEAT oven to 325°F. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Cut a 1-1/2-inch piece of straw; set aside to make hole in ornament. Unwrap and arrange candies on parchment paper in circular shape, filling in center of circle.

BAKE 3 to 6 min. or until candies are melted. Remove from oven. Immediately use an oiled toothpick or skewer to swirl the colors to create a marbleized look. Make a hole, about 1/2 inch from the top, by pressing straw 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 shoestring licorice into the hole to hang the ornament.

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.
Food Facts
Using ring-shaped hard candies sold in the bag offers many different colors and flavors to choose from.
