Almond Scented Salt Dough Recipe
Next, we molded circles of salt dough with our hands and flattened them down a bit. We pressed the almonds
into the dough in designs or just strait into the dough. You certainly don’t need the almonds in these ornaments, but it was fun for us to add them in.
At this point, you’ll want to poke holes in your ornaments. I used a chopstick to do this. Bake the dough at 200 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Then, turn off the oven and let the ornaments sit in the warm oven. When it’s time to make dinner, or you need the oven for something else, pull them out and let them sit overnight. It may take an extra day to completely dry, depending on how thick your ornaments are.
Peppermint Scented Salt Dough Recipe
Of course we had to experiment with peppermint candies in our dough. We used a sugar free version because that’s all we had in our house at the time, so I’m not sure how the regular peppermint candies would work in this ornament. We did cook ours in the oven for about 20 minutes like we did in the recipe above, and it turned out melting the candy just slightly to keep it attached to the ornament.
