  • Line your cookie sheet, sping form pan, or tart pan with parchment paper.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Arrange unwrapped mints in any design you wish on top of the parchment paper.
  • Allow extra room on the sides around the edge of the pan as the mints will melt and spread.

BAke Plate

  • Bake for approximately 5-8 minutes. Watch carefully.
  • Take out and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • The tray is fragile and breaks easily, so keep it on a small tray when moving it around.


Tips for Making Candy Plates:

  • 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 because it hardens quickly. Be careful... it's hot!
  • Try using a spring-form pan if you have one. (I used a tart pan, it was not as easy to remove the candy plate, but it did come out!)
  • Let the parchment paper be a bit bigger than the bottom of the spring-form pan to help you remove the candy plate.
  • You can also bake your candy plate on any cookie sheet, it works great.
