At That’s What Che Said, Cheryl remembers making ornaments out of melted peppermints back in her Girl Scout days. ” I got to thinking…why can’t I make them into a tiered serving tray instead?”
It was easy to pull together the materials to make a couple of serving trays. All Cheryl needed was peppermints, glue, a few kitchen supplies, and some dollar store candle holders. (Thrifted candlesticks or ones you already have on hand would work well, too.) Cheryl unwrapped the peppermints and used a springform pan as a circular guide to place the peppermints inside. Then she put the peppermints in a low heated oven until they had just melted together. Once cooled, the mints made a hard, flat circle that could be glued atop a candle holder to create a festive tray. I definitely have to try this!
