Patriotic Favors from Caramels
Indianhead Council

Made of caramels "glued" together by moistening with water, these miniature structures make perfect favors for a patriotic gathering.

Washington Monument: Stack four caramels; top with a fifth caramel, slicing sides to form a pyramid.

Lincoln Memorial: Place 2 1/2 caramels in a row, narrow sides up. Across top, lay 3 half-caramels for roof. Add 2 quarter slices lengthwise atop roof. Insert pieces of toothpicks around roof for columns.

White House: Place 3 caramels in a row, narrow sides up. Top with 1/4 of a caramel. For roof of portico, cut a thin slice in half diagonally. Add toothpick columns.

Capitol: Place 3 caramels in a row, wide side up. For dome, use two 8-sided shapes, one smaller than the other, made by removing corners from 2 caramels. Top with a small bit of caramel. Add portico and columns as for White House.

Statue of Liberty: Stack four caramels, use 1/2 caramel for head, shaping neck with knife. For arms, cut caramel into fourths, shaping end for torch. Cut crown from a slice.
