This project definitely requires adult supervision but the kids will love unwrapping the candy.
What you will need:
•Holiday cookie cutters
•10-inch length of ribbon
Instructions for the project: To make the mold, wrap the bottom and sides of a cookie cutter with foil. Set on a baking sheet and coat heavily with cooking spray. Fill each of the cookie cutters with a single layer of candies. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes, or until melted. Immediately add sprinkles, cool for 2 minutes, and then use a chopstick to poke a hole near the top for hanging. Once completely cool, remove from the mold and hang with a ribbon.
