Ingredients

  • What you need:
  • 1 bag of Brach’s Star Brites peppermint candy
  • cookie sheet spring-form pan, or tart pan
  • parchment paper

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line your pan with parchment paper or line a cookie sheet
  • Arrange unwrapped mints in any design you wish on top of the parchment paper, allow extra room on the sides as the mints will melt and spread.
  • Bake for approximately 5-8 minutes. Watch carefully.
  • Take out and allow to cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes.
  • Remove from the bottom, be careful; the tray is fragile and breaks easily, so keep it on a small tray when moving it around.

Notes

Tips for Candy Plate: If you want to shape or mold the tray in any way after you melt it, you should do so in the first minute it is out of the oven. It hardens quickly. But it is hot so be careful! Try using a spring-form pan if you have one. Let the parchment paper be a bit bigger than the bottom of the spring-form pan to help you remove the candy plate.
