Dip nut into candy melt

Dip one side of a macadamia nut into the candy melt that will be the base color for your helmets. Then turn and dip another side so that they resemble a Pac-Man. Place on wax paper to dry. Continue with the rest of the nuts.

Once dry, begin piping and painting details

Use a black candy pen to pipe the bottom of the mask. Next, pipe the top line of the mask. Finish by connecting the top of the mask to the bottom with little lines. Use a purple candy pen or purple candy melts melted in a piping bag to create the stripe along the top of the helmet. Glue a purple Christmas light to the side of the mask with candy melt.

For 49ers fans, you will use a red candy pen to draw a line along the opening of the helmet, as well as the mask. Draw a dot on the side of the mask as well.
