DIY Peppermint Trays for Christmas

Here is a quick and fun project to add some Christmas cheer to any room or event, Peppermint candies melted and shaped to fit your creativity and needs.

All you have to do is purchase peppermint candies and melt them on wax paper on a cookie sheet in the oven.   Arrange them in any pattern and shape you choose.  Then bake them for 8 minutes at 330 degrees.  Let them cool for about 10 minutes then remove the wax paper.

Here is the before and after results.

I added plastic wrap around my trays that way when I place the cookies on them they do not end up tasting like peppermint.

Once they cool and harden they are very fragile like glass.  They break very easily. Also note the longer you bake them the more they will melt and the thinner they become.

I’ll post photos of them in use at a Christmas party to show them in all their glory.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Enjoy.
