This recipe contains directions to make a cute Christmas train ornament or table decoration made entirely out of candy. Your children can easily make this if they are old enough to safely use a glue gun.
1 roll of lifesavers candy
1 small package of gum
1 chocolate rollo candy
1 hershey's kiss
1 mini hershey's chocolate bar
1 starburst candy
4 round peppermint candies
fancy string or ribbon for the ornament hanger
low temp. hot glue gun
1. If you want to use your train as an ornament - take your ribbon and tie into a loop around the Lifesavers.
2. Glue the roll of Lifesavers candy to the package of gum with the ribbon loop in-between.
3. Glue the peppermint candies on each side to make the wheels of the Candy Train.
4. Glue the Hershey's Kiss on the end of the Lifesavers to make the train smokestack. (I do mine with the flat side up but I have seen them the other way)
5. On the other end of the train glue a Rollo candy to make the engineer's room - glue a small candy on top for the roof (use a Starburst candy or mini chocolate bar)
6. Take your mini Hershey's bar and run a bead of glue the entire length and place on back end of the Candy Train.
7. *These are adorable additions to holiday gift baskets or part of your ribbon and bow decorations on gift boxes or gift bags. They are also good stocking stuffers.
