Step 1

In advance: Make monkeys. Use candy colors to tint portions of melted white candy black, blue, light and dark yellow. Use piping method to mold candies without sticks, filling mold 2/3 full. Chill until firm.

Step 2

Make treetops. For each treetop, roll out 4 spearmint leaves on waxed paper to flatten and lengthen to 2-2 1/2 in. Tape over center hole of Flower Forming Cups. Pipe a 1 in. circle of melted candy in center of cup; position 4 leaves in candy, trimming ends to a V for a snug fit. Pipe a large dot of candy over leaves to secure. Chill until set.

Step 3

Prepare cereal treats and press into greased pan, 1 1/2 in. deep. Cut circles for base using Comfort-Grip cutter. Cover treats with melted candy. Chill until firm on waxed paper-covered board. Seal bottom with melted candy; let set. Turn treetop over and cut small opening in center to fit pretzel rod; cut same size opening in base. Trim end of pretzel flat; insert in treetop and secure with melted candy. Attach monkey to pretzel with melted candy; chill until firm. Trim about 1/2 - 3/4 in. off bottom of pretzel; insert in base and secure with melted candy. Attach confetti sprinkles to base with dots of candy. Place treats in party bags.

Adding color details to candies makes them more realistic and much more fun! For large areas of color, it's best to paint the melted candy right in the mold before the whole candy is molded using a decorator brush. Or, for very small details like vines, mouths and messages, melted candy should be piped onto molded candies using a parchment bag with a small hole cut in the tip.
