Tips and tricks
1. Make sure to always look at the candy when it the microwave is melting because sometimes the melted candy can come out
2.use a cup of something like what I use so it can be easier for our to put the melted candy
3. Use gloves and make sure a adult is with you if your using a hot glue gun so you don't burn yourself
4.use a utensil like a fork or spoon to get out the melted candy if there is some left in the cup or bowl
