Peppermint Candy Spoons - Jazz up your hot chocolate this Holiday season!!

Hi Bold Bakers!

Peppermint is one of my favorite holiday flavors so these Peppermint Candy Spoons are a tasty and impressive thing to make for this Holiday Season. Your friends and family will not believe you made these at home. You will be the STAR baker! Most of the time when we think of peppermint treats, we think of crushing up candies and adding them to chocolate bark, or topping holiday drinks. Now you will have a fabulous and novel way to add this great flavor to your hot holiday drinks and style to the Christmas table.

This easy method for making Peppermint Candy Spoons is more of a technique than a recipe. It’s one I love to use around the holidays to bring things like hot chocolate, cocoa, coffee, and even winter cocktails to the next level. All you need to make this awesome little treat is classic red and white peppermint candies and a Silicone Spoon Shaped Mold.

I bought this mold online and I love it! All you have to do is crush up the candies in a food processor, or by hand, and fill the spoon mold with the peppermint candy crumbs. After a quick melt in the oven the peppermint crumbs take the shape of the spoons beautifully.

Once these Peppermint Candy Spoons are set they are the perfect addition to any holiday dessert spread. I love to give these as a gift along with my Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix, and of course to serve them after dinner with coffees and mochas. This simple idea shows that when it comes to the holidays it is the thoughtful little extras that make all the difference.

Ingredients

  • 1 bag round peppermint candies (about 36)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300oF (150oC). Unwrap candies and place in a food processor or pestle and mortar. Process until finely chopped almost to a powder.
  • Spoon the chopped candies into the cavities of your mold, going above the fill line (candy will settle considerably once it starts to melt). Place mold on a baking sheet and put in oven for 10 minutes.
  • Remove mold, on the sheet,from oven and sprinkle some more candies into the molds wherever there are gaps or spaces. Return to oven for another 5 minutes.
  • Cool completely and gently remove spoons from molds. Spoons will last several months when covered and stored at room temperature.

  1. Help! Im trying….but all of my candies are not melting. Only about half of the candies are melting, making a nice spoon on one side, but leaving cruahed pieces on the back still intact. It is very rough and jagged.
    I thought maybe i needed to leave them a bit longer in the over, but that only made new problems. They bubbled and burnt.

    What am i doing wrong? Is my candy not crushed enough? Am i using the wrong candy? Is there a brand that melts better than others?

    1. Thank you so much for trying it out, Heather! Sorry it didn’t work out well for you.
      Did you process the candies in a food processor until finely chopped almost to a POWDER? If there were large granules left, that would cause uneven heating.

      Hope this helps!

  2. Hi I made so many of your recipes and loved each and every one of them. I tried making the spoons and when I went to take them out of the mold they fell apart. I don’t think this would make a difference but I didn’t have the peppermint candies so I crushed mini candy canes. Thank you for your wonderful recipes. I just don’t know where I went wrong with this one.

    1. Hi there, this one can be tricky as ive had a few break on me too. Good news is you can take the broken bits and re-melt them until you get the desired result. Keep on baking and happy holidays!

  3. Gemma, you are PHENOMENAL! I anxiously await each new recipe and read each, even though I don’t make them often. With just my husband and myself, we don’t eat like we used to when our three sons were young. If only you had been publishing when they were young, I would have made your recipes constantly and would have had four VERY contented males in the house!!! Thank you!

  4. I tried making these spoons but it didn’t come out like yours. The crushed powder bubbled and leaked all over the mounds. I looked like it caramelised. What did I do wrong?

    1. Hi,

      Oh sorry to hear that. That happened to me but when I tried to do them in the microwave.

      There is some scraping that has to be done to make sure they are spoon shape. The reason they caramelized is because they were just in there for a little too long. I’ll write a note on the recipe to just take care and pull them out once melted otherwise this can happen.

      I hope you try them again,
      Gemma.
