  6. Wait 3-4 minutes before removing cutters from melted candies.
  7. Used the dull side of cutter to cut candy. Then use one hand to hold it down on pan while using other hand to lift up and break candy from the outside.

  8. To make sriped mitten cuffs, cut freehand strips of rolled out fondant with long, sharp knife.
  9. Cut some red strips too.
  10. Place strips side by side and roll with fondant roller.
  11. Using cuff portion of mitten cutter, cut out fondant cuff.
  12. Use bottom of mitten cookie cutter to trim the fondant piece.
  13. Place fondant cuff on candy mitten.

This is a cute idea. I think I might consider covering the whole thing with a clear glossy decopage product to keep it protected a bit more. These would be cute on rope of a gift package as well as being an ornament on the tree or on a wreath! The pattern it makes is quite pretty and nostalgic too! Thanks for sharing!

I had my children make these Glove Melted Peppermint Ornaments why back in the 80's . They were so much fun to make, and the kids had a ball decorating them for their own. We used a basic decorators icing on ours and the kids enjoyed eating them on Christmas day. I forgot all about these so now I have to have the Grand kids make some. Thank you so much for sharing this free Christmas craft.

Thank you for featuring my craft, but PLEASE include a link back to my blog in your description. Thanks again and Merry Christmas, Karen @ Sugartown Sweets http// == -peppermint-ornamentsmittens.html

Hi Karen! Thanks so much for your comment. I've updated the tutorial to include a link back! We didn't used to link back to blogs on FaveCrafts, but now that our policy has changed I'm so glad you left a comment. Let me know if there's anything else I can do! -Editors of FaveCrafts

Somee complaints that they melted...anyone have this problem ? Would like to make again...afraid...suggestions?

@cnfsd 0098714 I haven't heard any complaints about this, but I can see it happening. I would suggest not hanging this ornament near a Christmas light bulb on your tree and you should be okay? -Kaylee, Editor of FaveCrafts

I tried it....lots of fun...and easy

Candy mitten is so darn cute. I haven't done it.
