Posted By Tipnut On December 7, 2011 @ 12:11 pm In Recipes | No Comments
Here are over a dozen different ideas for incorporating candy canes and peppermint sticks into gift-worthy food treats (both whole and crushed). Most of these are super-easy to make yet they provide an impressive display on the holiday dessert table and are happily received as gifts.
Quick Tip: Enjoy a hot mug of cocoa or coffee with a stick of peppermint (or candy cane) as the stir stick, it will add a lovely peppermint flavor to the beverage.
Enjoy the treats below, I’m sure they’ll give you plenty of inspiration!
Festive Wands : These are dipped in a mixture of melted semisweet chocolate chips or white vanilla baking chips and shortening then rolled in crushed hard candies, glitter sugars, etc.
Cheesecake Decoration : Recipe included for a chocolate chunk cheesecake, sticks of peppermint candy are used to decorate.
Peppermint Bark : Always a hit during the holidays, here’s a basic recipe for white chocolate bark along with 7 tasty twists (yum!).
With White Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows : Coarse white sugar coats the dipped marshmallows, these can be a treat themselves.
Holiday Fudge : Gift-worthy idea, crushed peppermint candy tops squares or rounds of delicious fudge.
Sweetheart Pops : An easy treat that works for both Christmas and Valentine’s Day, candy canes are melted into heart shapes, pinched onto lollipop sticks then filled with melted chocolate and sprinkles.
Chocolate Loaves : Crushed candies are sprinkled over a freshly baked chocolate loaf then drizzled with melted vanilla chips.
Cake With Candy Trim : Here’s another easy idea for jazzing up a plain cake, frost it with whipped cream then trim the bottom with coarsely crushed candy (and a bit in the center top too).
