I mentioned this plate is perfect for Christmas. You can also make this plate to celebrate a birthday party.
Or a baby shower or a dinner party.
You can even make this for Valentine’s Day!
This is such an easy DIY that you can make one of these in less than half an hour, including cooking time.
Although that assumes you can find someone to help unwrap these candies.
What You Need to Make a Peppermint Candy Plate
Check out my video below that shows how easy these are to make!
How to Make a Peppermint Candy Plate or Platter
The hardest part of making these is unwrapping the candies. If you make multiple plates as I did, I highly suggest you enlist some help.
Make a quick estimate of the number of candies you will need for your Springform pan. My 4″ pan used about twenty candies.
Using the bottom section of the springform pan, draw a circle around the pan on parchment paper. Cut out the paper about 3/4″ larger than the drawn size.
You can cut many pieces of paper at once if you are making multiples.
Press the paper into the springform pan. This photo shows the parchment paper before I pressed the edges. Make sure to press all the way around the edges so that the candies can form a circle and not have indentations from the parchment paper.
Can you see how much tighter the paper is in the photo below?
Start lining the outside layer of the pan with candies.
If they don’t fit, just leave a small opening between each one to close the gap.
Start adding the next layer.
Once again, separate the candies slightly all the way around if they don’t fit perfectly. (It is doubtful that they will fit perfectly anyway!)
Add a candy in the center of the pan. If the space in the center is too small, you can break a piece and just insert it into the center.
Place the pan on the center rack in a 350-degree oven. Bake for 6-10 minutes, depending on your oven. Keep an eye on it, do not overbake them.
I overbaked the first four that I made. Hehe. You just want the candies to expand and touch. That’s it!
This pan is even overbaked a bit.
Let the candies cool completely and gently remove them from the pan.
I made a video highlighting how to make this adorable candy plate.That’s it! How easy were these peppermint cany plates?
Although I put them on a cupcake stand these could easily be placed on top of a small mason jar or just flat on a dessert plate.
