Too many leftover candy canes? Put them to use by making a candy cane platter, shot glasses, spoons and mini mug toppers!
Candy Cane Spoons
1 cup white candy melts, melted
½ cup crushed candy canes
melted dark chocolate
Combine the candy melts and crushed candy canes. Pour into a spoon-shaped mold and place in the fridge until fully set.
Unmold and dip the tips of the spoons in melted dark chocolate. Sprinkle with festive sprinkles.
Eat as is, or swirl in a mug of hot milk to have peppermint hot chocolate!
Candy Cane Mug Toppers
candy canes or peppermint candies
white candy melts, melted
Line the candy canes up on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350F for 10 minutes, until melted together.
Spray House Mug Topper cookie cutters liberally with cooking spray.
As soon as the candies come out of the oven, press the cookie cutters into the candy. Cool for 3-4 minutes, then gently remove the shapes from the cookie cutters. Place on the baking sheet and allow to fully cool. You will need 2 pieces from each cutter.
Use the white candy melts as glue to build the house. Add festive sprinkles for decoration, then place on your mug and enjoy!
Candy Cane Shot Glasses
Stick the candy canes vertically into a shot glass silicone mold. Break any candy canes that extend past the top of the mold, then place several pieces on top of the mold, to create the base of the shot glasses.
Bake at 375F for 12-15 minutes, and cool completely in the mold.
Unmold, fill with your desired drink and enjoy!
Candy Cane Platter
straight candy cane sticks
Line a baking sheet or cake pan with parchment paper. Place the candy canes inside, trimming them if necessary to create a tight fit.
Bake at 350F for 10 minutes, or until the candy canes have just melted together. Cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then remove from the parchment paper and serve with your favorite treats!
