I’ve seen these all over the place lately and have been anxious to try them. You may have tons of crayons around your house–but if not, luckily, they are about 25 cents in all the Back To School sales now-a-days.
Peel off the paper. When I was a kid–this was easy. But crayons today are a bit more snooty. They have some plastic stuff under the paper to help the crayons not break so easy–which also makes the paper harder to get off. Ask for help. I was surprised at how many people like to take the paper off of crayons.
Break them up and sort them into whatever color combos interest you.
Drop them in paper lined cupcake pans. Heat the oven to 350 degrees, then turn it off. Set the pan on the top rack and leave them there for about 10-15 minutes…
until they look about like this.
Set them in the freezer for about an hour.
Peel them out of the paper…
and there you have it…
