Eye Catching & Fun To Make Peppermint Bowls
Parchment paper, a heatproof basin, vegetable oil, 18 Starlight mint candies, and scissors are required for this. Use parchment paper to cover a baking sheet. Use the oil to coat the bowl’s outside. On the baking sheet, put 1 piece of candy. Put the candy in the oven for 2 to 2 1/5 minutes, or until it begins to look sparkly and soften but not melt. Six candies should be taken out and placed close together around the heated candy. Reheat for 4 to 5 minutes in the oven. As soon as the candies begin to soften, remove them from the oven. Keep them from melting. On the baking sheet, surround the circle with eleven more candies. (For a smaller dish, try this step with nine or 10 candies.) 7 minutes later, put the oven back on. Take it out and allow it cool for a minute. Cut a section of the parchment paper off quickly. Utilizing an oven mitt and the candy still on the parchment paper, rapidly center the center candy on the bottom of the oiled basin. Using the oven mitt to push the candies into one another, form the candy around the bowl. The peppermint bowl should be gently lifted from the bowl after removing the parchment paper (it should slide right off, but if it sticks, let the candies cool for another minute or two and gently pull it off). To prevent them from sticking to surfaces, place the finished candy bowls on top of little circles of parchment paper.

DIY Peppermint Candy Christmas Ornaments
To make the word ornaments, you first want to peel and stick the letters so they spell out the word you wish to display. We chose JOY for ours. Peeling and sticking the letters was so easy! Once you’ve placed the letters, decide if you want your ornament to go vertically or horizontally. You want to create a row of mints (bare, no lettering) that is two mints longer than your word. For example, if you’re spelling out JOY, you’d need four bare mints. On the bare mints, apply a layer of glue running all the way across (or down if going vertically) so you can then apply your lettered mints. Press the lettered mints to the glue firmly, placing them where each mint in the bottom row meets. Finally, add a dab of glue to the back of the lettered ornaments and apply a ribbon for hanging. Now you have a beautiful word ornament that’s ready to be hung up and enjoyed for the holidays.
