So, I have to be honest here. I have seen ornament made out of peppermint candy here and there on the world wide web. Easy. Simple. Not really, as it turns out. Because, cracking. We had a lot of cracking, some serious stickiness, and maybe a few tears. But, trial and error led us to some really pretty pieces that my kids are excited to give as gifts this Christmas. So to save you all some peppermints and tears I will share our tricks!
