I seem to be reminiscing about my primary school days a lot lately. Another fond memory I have is of giving and receiving candy canes at Christmas time. There were all sorts of colours and flavours around but to me you can’t go past the traditional red and white striped peppermint candy cane. It’s oh-so festive and it turns out there are a million and one ways you can incorporate them in your Christmas celebrations. I did a bit of pinning recently and would like to share what I found. I also made a few candy cane creations of my own starting with the candle holder above.
To make it, wrap a rubber band around a candle and insert the candy canes around the candle under the rubber band. Tie a piece of ribbon around them and then remove the rubber band.These baked treats would be the perfect end to a Christmas feast. I especially like the cake in the top right. It’s so pretty! You can’t go wrong combining chocolate and peppermint. These choc-dipped candy canes would make the perfect little gift wrapped in cello. Let your Christmas guests know where to sit with these tasty little candy cane place card holders. Wouldn’t a table full of these and lined with candy cane candles look great?! These little cupcakes were just too adorable not to include. I wonder if the idea for candy canes came from the North Pole?
Add a little bit of edible fun to your Christmas tree and hang some candy canes. You can jazz up any are of the house with these yummy treats.
So what about you? Did you give candy canes to your friends when you were at school?
