The holiday season is full of candy canes. They hang on trees, get handed out at celebrations, and decorate windows, tables, and mantles. The only thing they don’t typically do is get eaten. *Eyeroll*
If eating a candy cane straight out of the wrapper just isn’t your thing (and you know your toddler is going to crush it before they can eat it) try one of these 3 genius recipes to put them to good use!
1. Candy Cane Milkshake
If you don’t feel like eating your candy canes, try drinking them! This Candy Cane Milkshake looks just as good as it tastes and is perfect for a party! It’s super cute, totally festive and only has 5 ingredients – yum! Get the recipe here: https://www.iwashyoudry.com/candy-cane-crunch-milkshake/
2. Strawberry Candy Cane Mousse
Ok so we know this one sounds strange but it’s actually SO good! Grab some Oakhurst whipping cream, strawberry syrup and your leftover candy canes and you’re good to go. Such a fun dessert! http://www.momendeavors.com/2016/11/strawberry-candy-cane-mousse.html
3. Candy Cane Soap
If eating candy canes in any capacity just isn’t for you – make them into soap! It’s surprisingly easy to make and will fill your home with holiday spirit (and scent) even after the other decorations come down. This also makes a really fun holiday gift!
