We added holiday sprinkles (while it cooled) to the tree to make it more festive. The kids loved making ornaments to put on family presents.

what you need

 plastic drinking straw
 individually wrapped lime flavor (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 candy on parchment paper in tree shape, using 1 candy in top row, 2 in center row and 3 in bottom row.

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 drinking 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 in tree 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 Life Savers 5-Flavor Hard Candies sold in the bag offers many different colors and flavors to choose from.
Special Extra
To add a "tree trunk", press 1 Honey Maid Graham Cinnamon Stick into bottom of tree while candies are still warm.
