It's best to use Reynolds Non-Stick Foil to line your cookie sheet when you make them. The boys helped unwrap the candy and we laid them out in a rectangle, you can do any configuration you want.
Now you can see why you need to alternate and leave room on your pan. The kids can do most of the steps as long as you are careful they don't get burned. I love how they turned out, they look like mini stained glass windows. We also made them in Cross shapes. He attends a Catholic School so we gave these to his class. If you make them in the cross shape you will need to set the middle candy down and cook it for 1 minute first then lay the other candy's beside it and cook for an additional 5 minutes. If you don't the middle one will not melt enough.
