Heat an oven to 350 degrees.
Line your pan with parchment paper or line a cookie sheet. For a round tray, use a springform pan or round tin. For best results make sure you cookie tray or pan has edges, otherwise the candy thins out too small and becomes brittle.
To set the tray you need to allow the candy to harden, set at room temperature until the tray is hard. This is a tray made from candy, so it is going to be brittle. If you want to preserve your tray you can add a Clear food-grade varnish
You can make smaller ones as coasters too.
