Candy Cane Tray

Your holiday sweets and treats will look fabulous on a candy cane platter.

Preparation 5 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 0:15


  • crushed candy canes (or Starlight mints, full sized candy canes or any other hard candy)
  • shaped pan if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 330 degrees F.
  2. Line your baking sheet (springform pan) with non-stick foil. Fill the pan with candy cane pieces. You can also lay out your hard candy to make shapes or designs.
  3. Melt for 7 to 10 minutes, watching closely as the candy melts and fuses removing it before it starts to spread. There will be no spreading in the springform pan.
  4. Remove from the oven and release the sides of the pan so that it doesn't stick. Let it cool for 5 minutes. If you want to shape it into a bowl, gently lift the edges of the foil and support with paper towels, foil balls or other kitchen tools. You can try to push it into a bowl, but that is a bit harder and chances of cracking are higher.
  5. Remove from the hot baking tray and allow to completely cool to room temperature.
