diy holiday candy train

I remember receiving one of these candy trains from my piano teacher back when I was in Junior High so needless to say they've been around for awhile.

There are more elaborate trains out there but I think this one is simple and sweet.

You'll need:
  • Round Mints
  • Pack of Gum (these were VERY HARD to find, I checked several stored and finally found them at Bartell's)
  • Rolos or Reeses Peanut Butter Cups (I used Rolos because of nut allergies)
  • Hershey Kisses
  • Pack of Lifesavers
  • Hot Glue Gun
 First you'll need to hot glue the ends of the peppermint wrapper to one side.  That way they are not sticking out when you glue them to the train.
Glue the Lifesavers to the gum pack.
Next glue the four peppermint wheels to the gum.  Make sure to glue the ends to the gum so the "nice" side is showing.
 Lastly glue on the Hershey Kiss and Rolo.  Easy and cute!
