1. To cre­ate the pedestal base, use royal ic­ing (if you want the stands to be ed­i­ble) or hot glue to ad­here three candy canes to­gether along the long ends in a tri­an­gle for­ma­tion so they stand up. For ad­di­tional sta­bil­ity, glue four candy canes. (Tip: Use a small rub­ber band to hold the candy to­gether tem­po­rar­ily while glu­ing.) Set aside.

2. To make the pedestal top, spray a thin coat of cooking spray onto the in­side of the cookie cut­ter.

3. Line a bak­ing sheet with parch­ment pa­per and place the cookie cut­ter on the bak­ing sheet.

4. Un­wrap and ar­range round pep­per­mint can­dies in­side the cut­ter. Bake in a 300-de­gree oven for about 6 to 8 min­utes, or un­til the can­dies melt.

5. Let the melted candy cool into a solid disc for sev­eral min­utes and then gently push it out of the cookie cut­ter.

6. At­tach the disc to the base with ic­ing or glue and add a bow.
