LOCATION

Directions

  • 1 Using one point of scissors, carefully make a hole in bottom of foam ball about two-thirds of the way into the center of the ball so the candy cane stick can be inserted for the topiary trunk.
  • 2 Break toothpicks in half as needed. Insert toothpicks in random order on ball to cover surface without covering hole for candy cane stick. Push each piece of candy onto the toothpick half. Number of candies needed will depend on size of foam ball and type of candies being used. Insert candy cane stick into opening.
  • 3 Cut about 1/4-inch slice from bottom of apple so it stands flat. Using one point of scissors, carefully make a hole in the top of the apple about two-thirds of the way into the center of the apple so the candy cane stick can be inserted for the topiary trunk.
  • 4 Place candy cane stick into opening in apple; place on plate.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

•A large orange or pear can be substituted for the apple for a different look. •For a candy-filled ice-cream cone base, make the topiary top using a 1 1/2-inch-diameter foam ball so topiary won’t be top-heavy. Carefully insert one end of a candy cane stick into an unwrapped chocolate-covered caramel; place in flat-bottomed ice-cream cone. Fill cone up to the top with various small hard candies to weight it down. Place on decorative plate.
