On a parchment lined baking sheet, place 3 unwrapped Jolly Rancher candies above each other making sure they touch. Repeat this with all the candies. (Make sure to leave space on your tray to add the sucker stick)

Place the Jolly Rancher candies in the oven for about 4-5 minutes. Make sure to keep a close eye on them because you want to take them out just after they melt together. Next, Remove them from the oven and place a sucker stick on each one.

Let them set up for a few minutes until they aren’t hot but still tacky, then put 3-4 pieces of the seaweed and a shark on each one. Don’t these look amazing?
