Day three of our activity advent calendar called for making plates from peppermint candies. I’d seen several tutorials around on Pinterest, and it seemed easy enough. Bake at 350* for 8 minutes and allow to cool. It was quite easy, and the kids had a blast.
We baked ours in spring form pans to help keep the peppermints from spreading too thin, which I highly recommend. It left our dishes nice and thick and not too fragile feeling.
I also highly recommend to line your dish with parchment paper, a step I over looked. It made for a lot more work getting the plates out of the pan.
While super easy, cheap to make, a lot of fun and a lovely end product, I have one complaint. The plates are pretty sticky, even after having air dried all night. Stuff keeps getting stuck to them. I’m not sure if I could coat them with something to help with that. Any ideas?
