Peppermint Candy Heats for Valentines Day

Turn a Peppermint into a fun candy for your Valentine.  They melt easily when placed in a silicon mold and put in the oven.

I found a heart silicon mold at Goodwill for $1.00.  I knew I could use it for Valentines Day.  I bought a package of Peppermints  and came up with the idea of melting the candy into the molds for heart shaped peppermints.   I wasn’t sure how the peppermints would melt, but on 250 degrees, they melted right into the heart shapes.   I let them cool and they popped right out.

Yield: 80
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Peppermints melted in a Silicon heart shaped mold.


  • 1 Pkg. Peppermints
  • 1 Heart shaped Silicon mold


  1. Place one mint in each heart shape in your Silicon mold. Put the Silicon mold on a lined baking sheet. I used parchment paper. This is so the Silicon mold does not melt on the oven rack. Bake at 250 for about 20 minutes until the peppermints have melted into the heart shape.
  2. Remove from oven and let cool about 15 minutes. Pop out of molds and place in a dish.


Package in a small clear treat bag. Make with red or green peppermints for the holidays.

A 1-pound bag has approximately 80 pieces of candy.

5-pound bag has approximately 453 pieces of candy.
