Mint Candy Serving Tray Recipe From ABC’s ‘The Chew’

Photo by Kathy Whyte

I loved this when I saw Clinton Kelly on The Chew and just had to make it! The original instructions called for the oven to be at 300 degrees and bake for 5 to 7 minutes. My oven may be a little cool. I had to go about 310 and it took more like 10 to 15 minutes for the mints to melt into each other.  Prep time about a half hour. It takes the most time to unwrap the mint candies!

Peppermint Starlight Mint Dishes

1 package of hard, red and white swirl mint candies (unwrapped)

parchment paper and whatever shape baking dish you want to use.

Pre-heat oven. Place the unwrapped candies about a quarter inch apart on the parchment lined baking sheet. Leave about a half inch all around for spreading. Place in the oven, checking after about five minutes to see if the candies have melted into each other.  Once the mints have melted into each other, remove from oven to a cooling rack.

After about 30 seconds, you can carefully trim the edges with a pizza wheel if you like. Be very careful, melted sugar is very hot! If there are some small open spots where the mints don’t touch, you can use the point of a knife to draw the sugar together. If you would like to make a bowl, you could melt the mints in a pie tin and flip the candy disk out on an upside-down mixing bowl while the sugar is still warm and soft.

You can serve all sorts of treats on your new ‘dishes’, just nothing hot since it will melt the candy. Have fun and Merry Christmas!
