Wondering what to do with your candy canes this holiday season? Why not incorporate them into your food and drinks? Here are five delicious recipes to give you some ideas!

From their colourful hue to their peppermint taste, candy canes can be a festive staple. Whether crushed or melted, adding them to food and drinks will give your recipes a touch of sparkle.

  • Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake

This creamy cheesecake rich in chocolate and peppermint candy is the perfect showstopper. You will need to make an Oreo base, then a chocolate cheesecake filling using milk chocolate, sugar and cream cheese, before sprinkling some crushed candy canes on top.

  • Candy Cane Cookies

Leaving the house and want to take a sweet treat with you? Incorporate some crushed candy canes into a soft dough and mix well before cooking. Alternatively, chop the canes into slightly bigger pieces and press them down onto the dough just before putting the cookies in the oven.

  • Peppermint Milkshake

This a great cold drink to have as a dessert or snack. Simply crush the candy canes into small pieces and place them in the blender. Then, add in the ice cream and milk for a smooth taste and, voila!

  • Candy Cane Hot Chocolate

Need to warm up from the cold? Just stir some melted chocolate with some candy canes for a tinge of peppermint flavour.
