This Clever Hack Turns Peppermints Into a Cookie Platter

A woman makes peppermint candies.

If you’re hosting Christmas this year or throwing a holiday party, there’s a TikTok hack that’s going to impress everyone who attends.

Content creator @BrunchWithBabs, whose name is Babs, uploaded a clever craft that allows you to turn peppermint candies into adorable cookie trays.

In her video, Babs explains that all you need to do is place round, peppermint candies into a parchment paper-lined springform pan. Completely cover the bottom in a single layer of candies. Then, bake the peppermint at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes. When done, let cool, and you’ve got a perfect platter.
