How to Make Edible Peppermint Tray

Last year the kids and I made life saver candy cane ornaments. This year we’ll be making peppermint trays. All the rage now – make any size!

 

Preheat oven to 350. Arrange starlight mints on parchment lined cookie sheet. (I use my ancient, heavy duty cookie sheet).

Bake until they look l like they’re melted, about 9-10 minutes or so. As soon as they are melted remove. Don’t over bake.
For candy cane ornaments, arrange mints in a candy cane shape and bake them less time. Check after 2-3 minutes.  Spray the tip of a skewer and poke a hole in the top of the candy cane right after it comes out of the oven if you want to hang it on the tree.

 

Let cool completely and store at room temperature.
You can make a pretty pattern on the tray if, after it comes out of the oven and cools a bit but is still fairly soft, take a patterned dish towel (I used one with a quilt pattern) and gently lay it on top of the tray, pressing down with your hands. Let it cool completely before trying to remove towel.
