These trees are the perfect project for kids to create during Christmas break. Let them choose their favorite candies for decorating.
Stir paste into melted coating until blended and desired color is achieved. Dip each cone into coating, and immediately sprinkle with green sugar. Press candies into coating, and press 1 gumdrop on the top of each cone. Dry on a wire rack. Pour white sparkling sugar in the bottom of a clear plastic cup, and add tree; place in a plastic bag, and tie with ribbon, if desired.
