How to Make a Festive Peppermint Candy Tray

3 years ago

I used to know what was happening in the world, but then I had a teenager, and suddenly I'm the last person ever to have heard of the peppermint candy tray phenomenon. I discovered the project via a Pinterest-savvy co-worker, then I mentioned it to my teen daughter.

"Oh Mom, that's so 2012. You really didn't see it on Pinterest last year?"

It's true, I completely missed this easy and fun project that is simply melted and molded Starlight mints. I made the one pictured here in less than half an hour and placed it on a favorite cake plate, where it awaits the cookies and candies that will be made this weekend. Go ahead, pick up some peppermints and give this a try. I wrote up the instructions and put together a slide show on Examiner ~ please check it out here.
