Jenni's notes for this recipe:
With little kids, you almost always have broken crayons laying around. Use this to recycle them, or just use unbroken crayons for a fun craft with your child!

Peel crayons and break them into small pieces.
Fill the cavities of the silicone mold with crayon pieces. Place the mold on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Melt the crayons in a 180 degree oven - about 15 minutes for a small mold, longer for a larger one. (Mine actually took about 45 minutes)
Remove the mold from the oven, and let the crayons cool before popping them out. To speed up cooling time, place the mold in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

You're welcome! Just a tip, though... The pan doesn't clean up very well, so you might want to designate a pan just for crayons.
