This is probably one of my favorite projects. It's super fun. It's totally gorgeous. And it's really simple girls. My daughter and I have made these peppermint plates two years in a row now. Let me tell you ..... Santa loves getting his cookies on a peppermint plate : ) I made a dozen peppermint plates this week for Home and Family on the Hallmark Channel and I was thinking of using them as dessert plates at the Christmas table. Hey nowwww, we be getting fancy this year ya'll! Dessert on a peppermint plate!? You sayyy what!? Why do I always type with an accent when I write blog posts late at night?
If you missed today's episode of Home and Family on the Hallmark Channel weekdays 10am/9c you can scroll down and see the tutorial below!
To start this project you need a lot of mints. I found the Starlite mints work best for this project and they have the nicest color when baked.
You will also need one of these silicone molds or a Silpat and baking sheet.
Now create a pattern and fill the silicone baking round with one layer all the way to the edge. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. You need to check from 6 minutes on because you do not want the plate to bubble at all.
On this tray I used peppermint sticks on the outer edge and made a square tray instead of a round.
Don't you just love them!?
