How to make an Edible Peppermint Plate
First you need to buy a lot of peppermints either green,red,or both colors
Second you preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Next you line a pan with parchment paper
Then you take your colored peppermints and make any plate shape you like, but keep each mint a distance apart.
Design any thing you like. You can even make smaller plates or ornaments.
Our plates took between 5-10 minutes to melt. It is a good idea to keep a watch through the oven door. They are best to remove when you just see that they melted..
(Overcooking the plates can cause them to distort a little.) You will see this below on our Christmas tree.. (It stayed in 2 minutes too long)
BE VERY CAREFUL…..THEY ARE VERY HOT AND CAN BURN YOU……..HAVE AN ADULT REMOVE THEM FROM THE OVEN…….KEEP ON A COOLING RACK UNTIL READY TO BE REMOVED FROM THE PARCHMENT PAPER…………………………….
Here are a few pictures of our finished plates…We will be making cake pops and wrapping individually for all the teachers,bus drivers & monitors for holiday gifts..
Fun to do!!! Thoughtful & Yummy!! My favorite part was spending time with my mom making the plates and eating the peppermints while doing it!!!! LOL
