Almond M & M Christmas Lights

Family Favorites


My mother is in an assisted living facility and I am always looking for fun, easy ideas for them to do on their craft days. I thought this was adorable. Place a bunch in a candy dish, and they look just like the old-fashioned Christmas bulbs. =)

Other recipes show using light corn syrup to attach the two pieces, although I have never tried doing it this way. Enjoy!
