*Starlight Serving Tray*

 I just realized my theme for this past Christmas was peppermints! I made a peppermint wreath, peppermint bark, decorated the house with red garland and made a peppermint serving tray. I had a stash of leftover starlight peppermint candies and knew I could not eat them all. I had just enough to try out a new project. On REfreshREstyle, I found a “recipe” that blew my mind away. Baking peppermint candies! I would never have guessed that would be possible to make. Of course I had to try it out right away. So I unwrapped my candies and lined up a cookie sheet with foil. I placed the candies in the oven for five minutes and they melted. I could not believe it. I for sure thought they would burn or bubble up. Definitely keep an eye on the oven and do not leave it unattended, because the candies melt so quick. I then let the baking sheet cool completely and peeled the peppermint off the foil. It is easily breakable, so do not drop it! I then snapped off some of the edges because I wanted mine a smaller shape. It turned out cute and I can display my Holiday treats on the tray. I hope to experiment more next year with different shapes and perfecting the circle! In the meantime, it makes a cute serving tray which matches my peppermint theme flawlessly.

Once cooled, remove from foil and use for display. Be careful, it is fragile. You can always eat it too!
