  • cut small sticks then form small candles and leave to dry for an hour in a cool place.

  • after drying, melt chocolate, put a few drops of dye and dip the candles in chocolate.

  • let drain on a wire rack.

  • after a few minutes of drying, pour a little more melted chocolate on each candle to give the melted candle effect

  • stick in each candle a stem of cherry that will look like a wick

  • good luck
