Candy Corn Christmas Tree Pops!

"O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging,
Not only green when summer's here,
But also when 'tis cold and drear.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can'st give me!"

That's how I feel about these candy corn Christmas tree pops! They make me happy and fill me with holiday cheer!

I'm going to go ahead and tell you now, I searched high and low with no luck for my Reindeer Corn. We must have had a run on it in my neck of the woods!

So, once again my sweet hubby came to the rescue.

He ordered my candy straight from Jelly Belly!
Yay for fast shipping!

Hopefully, you will have an easier time finding yours, 'cause you are so gonna wanna make these tree pops!

And that is just how it happened. They popped right into my head when I saw these adorable turkeys!

The fact that these need only five minutes in the oven and are decorated with store bought candies, means you will have plenty of time left over for the more important blessings that this season affords!

So let's get to it!
Reindeer or Christmas Candy Corn, lemon Starburst and candy sprinkles are the ingredients needed.
You will also need lollipop sticks..
..and star cutters for the tree topper.

Before you bake your trees, press and roll out yellow Starburst candies and cut the size stars you will need depending on the size trees you are making.
Pretty colored candy sprinkles, aka, Christmas tree lights.
Place your candy corn on a parchment lined baking pan as shown below making sure that candies are touching each other.
Gently-so as not to move the candies-place baking pan in oven. Bake 5 minutes @ 300 degrees ०F or just as the candies begin to melt.
Remove from oven and immediately twirl/twist/turn the lollipop stick to coat it with the melted candy.
While the candy is still soft and melty-fied, attach star and press in candy sprinkles.

To keep my candies from melting further on the hot pan, I lifted them off (parchment paper and all) with a large spatula to finish cooling on my counter.
Oh how cute these turned out!
Now to make these giftable and up the cuteness just a smidge, we're gonna wrap these in a cello bag and tie up with Christmas ribbon!
Wouldn't these be the merriest little addition to your Christmas party or goody bag?! How about giving your favorite bank teller one at the drive-thru..they've been giving us lollipops for years! 😉
While my oven was still hot and I was feeling crafty, I made this candy corn wreath and slipped some ribbon through it for a sweet and easy ornament!
 These colors!!
