In fact, many creative ideas involving America's favorite holiday treat - candy canes - are available. White Chocolate Peppermint Bark is one holiday tradition in many homes, and it involves crushed Spangler® Candy Canes.

White Chocolate Peppermint Bark Recipe

Candy Cane Drink Rim Recipe

Candy canes can be more than just food. Are you having a holiday party and want to make a festive beverage? Candy canes can garnish nearly every drink, but making a special candy cane rim on a glass will keep your guests talking for years to come. You need:

  • Spangler® Candy Canes (decide the number needed depending on the number of glasses you are planning to cover)
  • Water
  • Drinking glasses

After gathering the ingredients:

  1. Chop Spangler® Candy Canes in the same fashion described for the White Chocolate Peppermint Bark (crush them into tiny pieces using a bowl and the bottom of a glass, a rolling pin, or a food processer) and leave the crushed up pieces in a bowl. Make sure the pieces are as finely chopped as possible.
  2. Wet the rim of each glass
  3. Place the wet rim in the bowl consisting of the Spangler® Candy Cane mixture, moving the rim in a circular motion.

Once each glass is covered with a candy-coated rim, fill the glass with whatever beverage you'd like. The peppermint flavor complements every beverage imaginable! The candy coated rim is fun for parties involving both children and adults. Let the children decorate their glass in the same fashion as the adults - with a different beverage inside the glass, of course!

Both of these recipe ideas can be used year round to give your home the holiday look and feel you desire.
