More About This Recipe
  • Serve your sweet treats on a beautiful mosaic platter made from hard candy this holiday season. Once the treats are gone, the platter can be broken and eaten too! This pretty platter is simple to make using store bought candies. You'll need white candy for the snowflakes and a several shades of blue for the background. I used blueberry candy sticks and blue raspberry candies along with white coconut candies, but mints would work nicely too. Before you begin, you'll need to gather up some metal snowflake cookie cutters. Three or more in various sizes (or one really large cutter) will work well. Molten candy can burn, so don't touch the hot candy! Be sure to allow the platter to cool for at least 90 minutes before removing it from the pan and peeling off the tin foil. Once it's ready, you can top it with sweet treats or just display it on your table.
