For the past few years I have been wanting to make these after seeing them on TV and the internet. Was I afraid to make it or just didn’t have time? That question I am not sure of the answer. I decided that this year would be the year after I went into our local CVS store and found my one ingredient.
I have a holiday party with friends to attend this weekend so I decided that making a tray and putting my treats on it would be a great idea. Even if they tray doesn’t make it past the night it really only cost me about $1.50 to make if not a bit less.
All you will need for this is:
1 bag of round peppermint candies
Piece of parchment paper
A pan size/shape of your choice
This is the type of candy you will need. Color does not matter. CVS only had the red and white ones.
STEP 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
STEP 2: Line the pan you use with the parchment paper. I chose a large spring form pan rather than a rectangle cookie sheet.
STEP 3: Unwrap the candies and strategically place them in the pan spacing apart just a little bit.
STEP 4: Place in your oven for about 10 minute but start checking after about 7 to see how it is doing.
STEP 5: Once they are all melted and in one giant piece remove from the oven before it starts to burn.
STEP 6: Remove from the tray you have in/on and place on a wire cooling rack. Leave the parchment paper on for a bit. It got a little messed up on the one side because I went to move it off of the bottom of the spring form and it flipped over so I had to un-flip!
Step 7: After about 10 minutes flip the tray you have made and remove the parchment paper. It may still be warm so let it cool.
STEP 8: I let it cool overnight but it shouldn’t need that long. Once fully cool you can use to serve what you wish on it.
