Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease bottoms and sides of muffin tin with oil so that the crayons don't stick. (You can skip this step if you use oven-safe silicone molds, which work VERY well)

I wanted to show you what will happen if you don't let the crayons cool all the way through- when you try to take them out of the pans, they will break and crumble and stick :( - so be patient!

Once completely cool (I let mine sit out on the counter for 1 hour), use a thin knife to pop them out of the muffin tins. (As they cool, they will pull away from the sides slightly, helping with this)
