I think I have a bit of an obsession with peppermint candy canes. I buy them by the case. Literally. They're one of my favorite things to buy when they go on clearance after Christmas. I use them throughout the year in my Peppermint Meltaways, White Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake and Candy Cane Hot Chocolate Mix. I might even have the urge to make Candy Cane Fudge sometime during the year. I usually break out the candy cane stash in the middle of the summer when I am dreaming of the cooler weather. And no one complains a bit. I might get strange looks from the kid's friends, but no complaints.
10 peppermint candy canes
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup powdered creamer
1/2 cup cocoa powder
Break up the candy canes place in the bowl of a food processor and process until the candy canes turn to powder. Pour candy cane powder into a small bowl and add remaining ingredients; mix well. To serve, mix 1/3 cup Candy Cane Hot Cocoa Mix into 3/4 cup hot milk. Stir well.
