How to make it

  • If you want to use your train as an ornament - take your ribbon and tie into a loop around the Lifesavers.
  • Glue the roll of Lifesavers candy to the package of gum with the ribbon loop in-between.
  • Glue the peppermint candies on each side to make the wheels of the Candy Train.
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Take your mini Hershey's bar and run a bead of glue the entire length and place on back end of the Candy Train.
  • *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.
  • *Here's thanks to Spritzle's for the pic and the directions.
