This is one the best ideas I’ve seen in a while!
How many times do you have to attend parties – like work Christmas parties, family parties, etc – and you have to bring a baked good, but you don’t want to bring one of your good plates, because you’ll never get it back? But you don’t want to show up with a lame paper plate, either? And you don’t want to spend the money on one just to bring to the party?
Well fear no more, my friends! I have the perfect solution!
Buy a big bag of hard candies, like peppermint candies (but you can use any kind).
Spread them out on a cookie sheet that is lined with Parchment paper. You can form them into a shape, or just as a square..
Bake them in the oven at 350 º for about 10 minutes, or until they are melted.
Take them out, and voila! As soon as it cools and hardens, (which only takes about 5-10 minutes), you have an EDIBLE serving plate! If you’d like to make it into a bowl, then shape it into a bowl as soon as you take it out of the oven. (I recommend placing a bowl upside down and placing the sheet of hard candy over it and let it harden that way).
Now you have a cute, unique, edible serving plate, and you don’t have to worry about getting it back!
