Last year I made these Easy Peppermint Star Ornaments. They were a lot of fun to watch as they melted and fuzed into a snowflake ornament. My son asked if we could make them again this year. Because the kids are officially out of school now, I thought this would be the perfect holiday activity today.

- Star Brite Peppermint Candies
- Parchment Paper
- Baking Sheets
- Large needle or knitting needle
- Green ribbon
- Gift bags
Pre-heat oven to 300˚F.
Unwrap the candies. You’ll need 13 candies per star. Lay the peppermints onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Arrange them into a snowflake design:
Place the baking sheet into the pre-heated oven. Bake for 8 minutes.
Remove the tray and immediately use a large needle to create a hole in the top of one of the outer points of the snowflake.
Allow the peppermints to cool and thread a green ribbon through the hole and tie.
Wrap up the Peppermint Star Ornaments in treat bags and give them to your friends and neighbors!
Or hang them on your tree ;-).

Be sure to plan on making more than you need. The melting process can create some not so desirable snowflakes, but they still taste good ;-).
