Peppermint Plates

Christmas is in full swing over at our house, Dopey Hi-Ho our elf has been causing all kinds of mischief and my oven is running nonstop baking Christmas goodies.

Susie and I have recently been making a bunch of Christmas cookies to take to our friends. I usually purchase Christmas tins/ boxes to put the cookies in but this year I thought we would try something a little different. We decided to make Peppermint plates, and I absolutely love them.

This is all you need.

Materials:

  • Parchment Paper
  • Brachs Mints
  • Cookie Sheet.

The first thing we did was turn the oven on to pre heat at 350 degrees, this way once you have your mints ready the oven should be nice and hot. They only need to be in there for 8-10 minutes so set the timer and stay close.

Next we traced and cut our parchment paper to fit the cookie sheet we used and unwrapped the mints.

Now comes the fun part, arranging the mints. The great part about this project is there is no wrong way to do it. Arrange the mints however you want, but be careful not to place them too far apart. We decided to go with a square shape. Then we placed them in the oven and baked for 8-10 minutes. Once the mints melted, we removed from the oven and allowed to cool.

Now the plate is ready for cookies.

Yum!!

Now the plate is ready to be wrapped up and given to a friend, that is if we don’t eat all the cookies first.  I really love this project. Susie was able to do this almost completely on her own and make her own designs which she really enjoyed. I also really like that there is no cookie tin or box to store or dispose of once the cookies are all eaten you can enjoy the peppermint plate. We will definitely be making these for years to come.
