You know that old-fashioned hard candy that makes an appearance every Christmas? The super sweet stuff that makes your hands sticky and teeth ache?
In all honesty, I hate the stuff. But the other day on the Rachael Ray Show, I saw this really cute idea that uses this candy in the most creative way. You simply arrange the candy on a baking sheet and bake until it melts. The result? Beautiful, stained-glass looking candy ornaments/decorations.
This is a great holiday craft/cooking project to do with your kids! Not only will they love arranging their candy in different shapes and patterns, they will also love seeing the (surprising) end result. I was surprised myself – and I am years beyond my childhood.
This is also a cheap activity. A bag of this candy costs right around $4. I got mine at Walgreens.
