I am in total love with this Tiered Peppermint Serving Tray! Last year I made this Mod Podged fabric one and I adore it! Use it all the time. I remembered back when I was in girl scouts, and we made these melted peppermint ornaments. I got to thinking…why can’t I make them into a tiered serving tray instead? And this little creation occurred! I am so happy it did!
- 2 bags of Peppermints (red or green)
- Parchment paper or a sil-pat
- cookie sheet
- Candle sticks (Dollar Tree)
- Hot Glue/Glue Sticks
I stared off by preheating my oven to 325 F. Then I got to unwrapping! I bought the individually wrapped bags of peppermints…so I unwrapped them all.
I used my spring form pan outsides as a guide for my large circle. I laid down some parchment paper and got to arranging!
I baked for 9-10 minutes. Watch closely. You want them melted together but not totally liquefied! I used almost a whole bag for my large platter.
I repeated for the smaller platter. I realized that you don’t really need that spring form pan form. When you remove your sheet from the oven you can use a butter knife to re-shape the melted candies into a more circular shape! Worked great!
Once they were cool I peeled off the parchment paper and then attached them to the candlesticks with hot glue! Weird I know, but it worked great and I can just use a blow dryer to heat up the glue and remove after the holidays!
You can choose to use them stacked on top of one another or by themselves!
