Here are the items you will need to make Peppermint Candy Spoons!
- Starlight Peppermint Candy – So, I really prefer this brand! I know it sounds crazy, but I find that the spoons come out the best with this particular brand of peppermints. (this is also true with the shot glasses and candy bowls.)
- Silicon Spoon Mold (got mine here – click link) – They sometimes sell out around Christmas, so get it early! Others will work too, but just make sure that you are allowed to put them in the oven.
WATCH THE HOW TO VIDEO!!
Peppermint Candy Spoons
- 1 bag Starlight Peppermint Candy
- 1 bag Wilton Candy Melts
- Holiday Sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
- In a ziplock bag, crush the peppermints (I used a kitchen mallet).
- Use a teaspoon to fill the spoon mold with the crushed peppermint - be sure to put extra by the top of the spoon part and at the neck of the spoon (where the spoon and handle meet). These are areas that break easy.
- Place in oven and let melt completely. Mine took about 10 minutes, but every oven is different and you just have to watch it. Once it was pretty melts (about 8 minutes in or so) I took mine out and added some additional crushed peppermint wherever it looked thin. (the peppermint melts down a bunch, so you may have to fill it in) - then I let it cook for a few minutes longer.
- Take out of oven and let cool completely.
- Separate the sides from the candy carefully and remove. If one breaks, just add some more crushed peppermint and cook for a few minutes more.
Optional - Melt the chocolate candy melts according to instructions on package. Did spoon end into the chocolate and immediately dip into sprinkles. Place on wax paper until dry.
