10 Candy Cane Treats & Sweets


Do you love candy canes? There’s just nothing quite so festive as the red and white stripes on a candy cane. Whether you prefer them in the traditional shepherds crook or you love the round candies, the Christmas season just wouldn’t be complete without these little peppermints! Here are 10 Candy Cane Treats & Sweets to help you enjoy the red and white peppermint candy canes all season long.

Hang the candy canes on your tree the traditional way, be a little more creative and create some Candy Cane mice or craft a green felt Christmas tree wrapper. Eat them right out of the bag or crush them and use the candy canes to make some amazing dark chocolate peppermint sugar cookie cups. When the weather turns cold and the snow starts to fall, don’t drink traditional hot cocoa, spice it up with some old fashioned peppermint candy canes.

The fun thing about Christmas candy canes is that they don’t cost a fortune to buy a box or a bag and they last almost forever. You can stock up on the traditional red and white stripes or branch out and experiment with the fun fruit flavors. Candy canes are just the most fun candy of the season!

So what are you waiting for? Take a look at these great ideas! Get inspired to make some memories with your family. Who knows? You may even find that you have so much fun cooking up one of these candy cane treats that you decide to make a double batch and share it with a neighbor. These 10 Candy Cane Treats & Sweets below I have found from some of my favorite blogs, and do have permission to post them. I hope you find something you will love!
