Candy Canes are a versatile Christmas treat! Personally we prefer the mint flavoured variety and love to use them in our Christmas decorating and baking. We always have a pack on hand to use during the festive season. When the teens were in primary school, they would receive a candy cane and a Christmas card from their classmates so we always had more candy canes that we knew what to do with! Now we just buy a pack or two to incorporate into our Christmas projects.
Here are some of our favourite Candy Cane ideas. (Click on the link under the photos to be taken to the original post).
Candy Cane Milkshakes are so delicious! Add some crushed candy canes to a vanilla milkshake. Yummmm…
Candy Cane Cookies have become a popular Christmas treat in our home. Sarah bakes a big batch each year and they never last long!
Some of the other ways we have used candy canes include:
- Hanging candy canes from the Christmas tree
- Attaching candy canes to gifts
- Candy cane ice-cream
- Candy cane macarons
