Holiday Tray made from Mint Hard Candies

My friend Jannie tried a really cute idea that she saw on TV the other day - a tray made entirely of peppermint hard candies. She bought a bag of the hard mint candies at the dollar store, and her daughter Jayde helped by unwrapping all the candy pieces. She said it was an easy, economical, quick and fun holiday project.

I think it came out great!

Just line a baking sheet with wax paper, place the candies evenly all over the tray about 1/4" apart  and bake in a moderate oven (300 - 350) for 5 - 7 min. Trim edges as soon as you take it out of oven, if needed and remove from wax paper while still warm. It makes a great tray for Christmas goodies. You can also create small decorations using the same method, cutting the shapes before candy sheet has cooled. I think a round tray might be nice. I wonder if maybe butterscotch or other hard candies would work as well?
