Make Your Own Peppermint Candy Serving Trays


Candy Tray

This is a super simple idea for dressing up your holiday table – make your peppermint candy serving trays.  This cheap, easy, and fun.  I saw this last year after Christmas and have been planning to do it ever since.  One word of warning:  They are very fragile, so be careful with them.  I had one I had put candy canes in that was so pretty, but I broke it.  It was very large, so it you make a large one, you might want to move around with a cake board under it.

I got the directions from Tutto Bella, which is a great website!

  • Starlight peppermints (The number depends on what your are making.)
  • cookie sheet
  • parchment to line the sheet


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Arrange peppermints in any design you want, leaving a little space between each. See photo below.
  4. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until the spaces between the candy fill in. Watch very carefully. Over cooking does not make a pretty picture. All the ones I made took almost exactly 8 minutes.
  5. Slide to a cooling rack while still on parchment and let cool several hours or until all stickiness is gone.
