I’ve seen the peppermint candy bowl popping up on the internet.
I decided to give them a try to see if the internet was a BUNCH OF LIES.
When it worked I thought, “I gotta make a video!
Peppemint Candy Bowl DIY:
My bowl took about 29 (?) (math) peppermint starlight candies.
You’ll also need …
- – AN OVEN (preheated to 300°
- – a bowl with a relatively flat bottom (heh… I wrote BOTTOM)
- – a cookie sheet
- – a small silicone baking mat
- – an oven mit
- – a timer
Lay the peppermint candies on the mat in your select design. Trey to push them as close together as you can. I could have pushed mine closer in this video, but whatever. You see it ended up working.
(Until my daughter dropped the bowl, but I’m not pointing fingers.)
(OK. I totally just pointed a finger but whatever.)
Depending on your oven… you’ll shoot for about 8 minutes. Mine took about 8.5. I found with my test run, if they cook too long they melt too much and look like more like expressionist art.
Nothing agains expressionists. Or art. If you like that – THEN YOU DO THAT.
Let the peppermint candies cool for a minute or so before you carefully lay them over the bowl. Utilize that oven mit so you don’t burn your cute little hands,
