DIY Christmas Platter Under $5 and Under 5 Minutes!

This DIY platter made on hard candy is so easy and such a fun craft to do on Christmas Eve. I originally got the idea from The Chew and it is the perfect host gift or a great way to serve your favorite Christmas cookies.

You will need:
* Package of hard, red and white swirl mint candies (unwrapped)

* Parchment paper and whatever shape baking dish you want to use.

Directions: Pre-heat oven. Place the unwrapped candies about a quarter inch apart on the parchment lined baking sheet in desired shape and size.  Place in the oven, checking after about five minutes to see if the candies have melted into each other. Once the mints have melted into each other, remove from oven to a cooling rack.

Wait 30 seconds and trim the edges with a pizza cutter to straighten and perfect.  Let sit to harden for about 5 minutes and Voila!
