so last year there was a small debacle regarding peppermint candies. aaaand i had about 450 left. so i tried these cute little coaster/trivet/thingies i saw somewhere, probably on pinterest.
they didn’t turn out the way i hoped (peppermint candies, i am OVER you!), but i used another 50 candies or so, hooray! that top one is probably the best, i used a pizza cutter to make the edges sharp and so it’d fit the little tray i wanted to put it on.
the edges tended to get a little runny, but eh, cute enough. oh, and hey! dig my cupcakes! i made those for our viewing party for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and they were pretty darn cute if i say so myself.
and i guess while i’m doing the dump of holiday-time desserts i have made, lookit these little peppermint icecream whoopie pies! i made the icecream, i made the whoopies, i made the pies!
i did NOT use peppermint hard candies, i’m still looking for ways to use up about 400 of those…
