2. Place the cookie cutters on the cookie sheet. Use only oven safe, metal cutters.

3. Drop the unwrapped candies into the cookie cutters. You want them to fill as much of the surface as possible but avoid stacking them up too high. There is no need to grease or spray your pan or cutters before use.

4. Place the tray in the oven at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes or until the candy turns to liquid.

5. Remove the tray and allow it to cool.

Now, carefully pull the cookie cutter from the cookie sheet and pop the candy out. It should have taken the shape of the cookie cutter. Remove any rough edges or extra candy that may have melted out of the sides.

Add a dab of glue to the back of the melted mints and press a ribbon to it for hanging. Once it is dry, your melted peppermint ornaments are ready to be displayed or given as gifts. Gather your supplies and give these melted peppermint ornaments a try!
