Candy Candle

Candy Candle

  • York Peppermint Pattie
  • Lifesavers
  • Hershey Kiss
  • Bow
  • Other candies and ribbon for decorating
  • Cellophane tape



For the base, take the Peppermint Pattie and wrap it in foil or fold the corners under and tape. Glue a bow to the top of the Peppermint patty. Cut out the center loop of the bow. Candy

Take the outer wrapping off the Lifesavers roll. Don't remove the foil wrap. Tape a Hershey Kiss to the end of the Lifesaver roll. This will create a candle. You can use other types of rolled candy such as Mentos, Rolos, Spree etc. Tape the bottom of the candle into the bow where the center loop was removed.

You can decorate the candle with ribbon or stickers. We used ribbon criss-crossed around the candy and to the red candle we added a chocolate heart candy.
