Pinterest Fail: Peppermint Plate

I've been seeing idea of cooking peppermint candies in the oven and creating a decorative plate. This looked relatively easy to try and if it had worked it would have been a get addition to my Christmas Eve table. But, this was not the case, this was defiantly a Pinterest fail.

I used peppermints from another Pinterest fail, a peppermint wreath.

We unwrapped the candies and arranged them on the parchment paper. 

Then we cooked the peppermints at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. 

When it came out, the outer edges were bubbled and the center was only slightly melted. Now this could have something to do with my oven, it is pretty old. 

I would love to hear from anyone who had lucky trying this craft.


  1. I've had luck doing this with cookie cutters. Maybe if you tried in a small pan with edges to prevent it from spread out unevenly?

    1. Thanks. I will try this next time. I think smaller would work better too, never thought to try it with cookie cutters.
