Taken strait from Clinton's Craft Corner
I'd have to be a member of The Chew web sight to find the link and specific recipe, and I reserve my right to not HAVE to sign up for anything I don't want so they get verbal credit...... THE CHEW Clinton's Craft Corner..... With very much my own process. The info from them was: 325 degrees, till melted, allow to cool and trim to make platters or shape to make ornaments...... ya I had to do more work than that! LOL

    Step 2

    Place the candies flat inside of the shapes, you can break some up in half pieces to "fit" better. Then place the shapes in the oven for 9 to 11 minutes, until melted. If you have patience, open oven every 2 min after 4 strait min unchecked.

    See! clean sides are GOLDEN! NOW taking them out can be tricky.. I actually broke the small curve of that one, exactly, in the photo and had to re-melt it. The butter does help to get them off.

    Step 5

    This is what it looks like all out! Now to make a platter Note: place in a shape as well. The next photo has a round platter in it, I did that in the pie pan. that took about 13 minutes. Trimming and cutting is really hard because the candy is so hot then gets hard so fast, you really gotta have skills.

    Next attaching ribbon is up to you. I used hot glue. Don't worry hot glue gets cool fast enough that it doesn't melt the candy.

    Step 8

    I loved my cord that I bought so I put it on all my ornaments, and could only think of bows, but really attach anything you see fit, more candy, or a star etc.

    Then hang them on the tree or wrap them in freezer paper and gift them to someone special. They totally look 3D, well... some are 3D because they didn't melt all the way flat. These are so much fun, my favorite project this year (holidays)
