Candy canes might go out of season, but peppermint never does. And since candy canes are red and white they are perfect for creating Valentine’s treats. Tonight I shared one of my favorite ways to repurpose leftover candy canes at $5 Dinners: Peppermint Divinity.
Here are a few more ways you can use up your leftover candy canes:
Easy Peppermint Bark – Place the pieces in a heart shaped tin and give to your sweetheart.
Chocolate Candy Cane Pretzels - These would be lovely as a Valentine Gift!
Peppermint Cookies - Add crushed candy canes directly to the cookie batter.
Chocolate Candy Cookies - Make these in the shape of a heart for Valentine’s Day and use candy canes instead of peppermint candy.
Use Candy Canes as Cough Drops - Hard candy is quite effective as a cough drop and tastes much better!
Candy Cane Cake - Cover entire cake or place a heart shaped cookie cutter on the top of a cake and place crushed candy canes inside the cookie cutter. Remove the cookie cutter and you have a lovely crushed candy cane heart.
