6 Theater boxes of Junior Mints will fill 4 medium trays*


  1. Set the temperature of your Freeze Dryer to 135, I always have my machine set to 24 hours of extra dry time, you will only need 4-6 hours to freeze dry these. (You can also run these on a piggy back from another candy run at 135)
  2. Start your machine and let it cool for 15 minutes
  3. While your machine cools, line your trays with parchment
  4. Spread Junior mints out in rows 5-6 mints across in 12-13 rows per tray
  5. Put the trays in the machine, turn the Candy Mode Button to On, and then press Skip Tray Warm, the machine and pump will both turn on within 20-30 seconds.
  6. Time is machine and environment dependent.
  7. Store Appropriately (See Tips and Tricks for storage help)
* Extra Large Tray = 15 Cups/Tray   Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray   Medium = 6 Cups/Tray   Small = 4 Cups/Tray Cycle times & rehydration for reference only. Your results may vary.
