Gingerbread Men
The trick to getting these gingerbread men to hold the sweets is to bake them holding little balls of tinfoil which then takes shape to hold the sweets once baked.

Stained Glass Cookies
Make these by cutting out Christmas shapes from sugar cookies and crush up hard boiled sweets for the center. They make great decorations for the tree too so make sure you add a hole with a toot pick before baking.
