Peppermint Holiday Serving Tray Craft

  These creative trays are so adorable and perfect for serving your holiday cookies, cupcakes and treats! This is a fabulous holiday decor craft. Imagine bringing the hostess or your neighbor a plate of Christmas cookies on a tray they can EATAnd maybe the neatest part is that each tray only costs about 75 cents!







-Peppermint Serving Tray-
What You’ll Need:

-Mints - (Tip: The Cheaper The Better! Buy the ones that have white in the center, and striped only on the rim of the peppermint.)
-A cookie sheet
-Parchment paper
-An oven

How to Make It:

1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Arrange your mints on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Your mints should be roughly ¼ inch apart, leaving some extra room on the sides for melting.

3. Bake it for approximately 5-7 minutes.

4.  Once it’s out of the oven, let it cool slightly (30 sec) and trim the edges.

5.  Use as a tray, but be careful not to add any hot items to the tray, even once it's cooled.

*Tip: You can also use a cookie cutter while the peppermint is still warm and cut shapes to harden into ornaments! 

6. You can go as crazy as you want with this: Use green & red to make a design, spell a word or even use sticks instead of mints!
