Peppermint Ornamints

ornamintsThis month’s craft only has one ingredient. Peppermints! We are going to make Peppermint Ornaments or OrnaMints! I found the inspiration for this edible craft on These Ornamints can be used to decorate a tree, placed in a plastic bag and tied onto gifts or set out on a platter for friends to eat.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. ornaments1

  3. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  4. ornaments2

  5. Spray oven-safe, metal cookie cutters with non-stick cooking spray, then place on the cookie sheet.
  6. Fill each cookie cutter with peppermint candies. Break candies into pieces to fill in smaller areas.
  7. Bake for 3–9 minutes until candies melt into cookie cutter shape.
  8. Remove from oven and let candy harden.
  9. Gently stretch the cookie cutter to remove candy “ornament”.
