Candy Trays

Peppermint Candy Tray

My friend Sue saw someone make these on TV and wanted to try it- so we did. The trays are just peppermint candies that are melted in the oven and cooled. Cool, huh? we also made a bowl. The process is pretty simple. Preheat your oven to 350-degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet. Unwrap the candies and place them about 1/4 -1/2 – inch apart on the baking sheet. We set the timer for 5 minutes- but they actually took about 10 minutes to melt and come together in a flat “tray.” Remove from the oven and cool a few minutes- you can trim the edges once they have cooled a little- but before they are completely cool or they will have gotten hard and will shatter.  The first attempt was super easy. The second time we arranged them in a circle and melted them as the first batch. Took it out of the oven and placed it on top of a metal bowl to cool. The result is a bowl made from candy. Fun project to do with kids. Special thanks to Sue Larick for her help- and the fact that she actually had peppermints, Martha Shaw for helping in unwrapping them all and Kat Ro- well just for being here in time to “Ooh and Ah.”
