    I am having a Kids in the Kitchen class this weekend and we will be making the pretzel wreaths. I haven't done them in awhile ... does anyone know how long the melted candy takes to harden? I'm trying to coordinate the rest of our recipes so that these will be ready to take home with the kids.

    Thanks

    It really depends on the temp of the room, etc...

    What I've done before is place them on a stone that's been in the freezer - that will harden them quickly...I've had people make them on pieces of parchment, and then put their name on the parchment, so we know who's is who's...

    Great idea - I have a porch that doubles as a cold storage area, so this will be a perfect place to keep the stone before & after they're made. Thanks!

    Oh, yes - you're in Vermont...so you have cold weather too. :) I've done that before too - we've just placed them out on a porch or a in a garage...with winter temps, they are hard in no time! :thumbup:

    I'm doing this for my show on Saturday and I bought a pack of small red paper plates at the dollar store. I plan on everyone writing their name on the plate and putting their wreath on it so they can take it home easily even if it hasn't hardened yet.
