...Talk about your childhood wishes
You could even eat the dishes*...
  
Ok, I know that's an old song and
these candy plates have been floating 
around the blogosphere for awhile, too!
But I've been wanting
to make a Starlight Mint platter
and see for myself that it works.

It does work!

So... here's my version of

How to Make A Peppermint Plate:

Using a springform pan
ensures that your plate will be
perfectly round with a nice, thick edge.

Just line the pan with parchment paper,
fill the bottom with one layer of peppermints,
and put in a 350 degree oven
for 5 to 8 minutes.

Keep an eye on your mints.
When they look melted flat
remove the pan from the oven 
and allow to cool completely.
Then take the bottom out of the pan
and... 
voila!

An edible plate for your
holiday treats!
