This week the 4 Moms are sharing quick and easy holiday recipes. I shared several fun easy recipes in my post on ideas for food gifts, but today I’m going to teach you how to make a festive, edible serving tray.
This is a good idea for taking treats to someone’s home as you can leave the serving tray and your host and hostess may eat it. The kids are also planning on making these to use when we go caroling and take Christmas treats to our neighbors.
Mint Candy Serving Tray
All you need for this project is:
- cookie tray (or any oven safe dish with a flat bottom)
- parchment paper
Preheat your oven to 350.
Line the bottom of your tray or oven-safe dish with parchment paper. Arrange mints on top of parchment paper in any design you’d like. Mints should be touching.
Place into the preheated oven and let the kids watch the candies melt together. Remove from oven when tray is smooth (about 10 minutes or so).
Allow to cool (about 5 minutes) then remove from parchment paper. We found that the bottom side of the tray generally has a prettier design than the top, so we turned ours over and used them to serve peanut clusters.
- Melt mints into the shape of each child’s initial for a personalized stocking stuffer.
- Use a mixture of red and green mints. I think putting green mints in the shape of a Christmas tree surrounded by the red mints would be pretty.
Now it’s your turn to share your quick, easy holiday recipes. Please remember these rules:
- Your post must be family friendly.
- Link to a specific relevant post, not to the homepage of your blog.
- Your post must include a link to at least one of the 4 Moms.
- If your link is deleted, you probably didn’t follow these rules. We hope you’ll fix the problem and try again! If you don’t know why your link was deleted, just ask.
