Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Place cookie cutters on parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray (this part is important – it helps for the ornaments to come out without breaking!)

Place candies inside each cookie cutter – they don’t have to be totally full.

Bake for 10-15 minutes but watch carefully because timing depends upon the cutters you are using.

Let cool a few minutes before punching holes if you wish to use as an ornament. Be sure to do this before they become hard. Also, make a bigger hole than you expect you will need – the holes will fill a bit as they harden, like ours did. It was not big enough, then, to insert a string to hang once they were hard without breaking them.
