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

1
 plastic drinking straw
6
 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.
