Thanksgiving Placecard Markers

This is a really cute idea from Wilton

Double the fun this Thanksgiving by creating autumn-inspired place cards for the holiday table. Not only do they enhance the d├ęcor, but make scrumptious mini desserts to enjoy after the big meal.

Here´s how easy they are to make! Begin by pouring melted Candy Melts into mini loaf pan cavities and refrigerate until firm. Next, use additional melted candy to write guests´ names on the cards and to brush the edges. Dip each edge into fall-themed sprinkles to create a festive border. Your place cards are ready! Guests will be as impressed by the custom place cards as they are by the turkey and trimmings. The "cards" can be wrapped in plastic and enjoyed later if everyone is too "full" to eat another bite after the Thanksgiving feast.



Makes: Each candy serves 1.

*Brand confectionery coating.
Melt Candy Melts according to package instructions. Pour into mini loaf pan cavities creating a layer 1/8 to 1/4 inch deep. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold.
Place melted candy in disposable decorating bags; cut a small hole in tip. Write name on plaque with contrasting melted candy.
Brush edges of candy plaque with additional melted candy. Dip each edge into sprinkles. Repeat with remaining plaques.
Refrigerate until firm. Cut additional Candy Melt in half; trim one edge flat to create right angle. Attach both halves to back of plaque to act as a stand.
